- GRAD–I 705 Human Rights Multidisciplinary Graduate Seminar (3 cr.) This is the core course for the Ph.D. Minor in Human Rights. Like the minor, it emphasizes a global and multidisciplinary approach that is as theoretical as it is applied. The overall goal of this seminar is to help graduate students generate a framework for research and practice that investigates human rights and which incorporates various perspectives and complements students’ disciplinary and regionally specific academic interests. The seminar is designed to stimulate students to think critically about a broad range of theoretical and methodological issues involved in human rights research, including ethics, legalities, relativism and universalism, the intersection of the global and local, and research concerns from different disciplinary perspectives.
