Teaching Human Rights: From Gettysburg to the World
This year is the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This declaration has been used by governments, activists, policymakers, teachers and students around the world to educate ourselves about human rights violations and the intrinsic dignity of each human being. Human rights education has increasingly received lots of funding by various organizations because they recognize the importance of education as an instrument to further entrench this notion of human rights for all. Dr. Hakim Mohandas Amani Williams, Associate Professor of Africana Studies and Director of Peace and Justice Studies at Gettysburg College, will offer a free, half-day workshop to local teachers and student teachers in the Gettysburg area on from 9am to 1pm.
It will be held at Gettysburg College and lunch will be provided. You will learn a bit more about the UDHR and human rights theory but more importantly how to implement human rights into your already existing curricula. Participation is limited to a small number.
To register, please email Dr. Williams at hwilliam@ gettysburg.edu.
