Civil Rights as Human Rights – A USC Levan Institute-Oxford Workshop

CIVIL RIGHTS AS HUMAN RIGHTS
A USC LEVAN INSTITUTE-OXFORD WORKSHOP
JULY 5-12, 2015 | LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS

In partnership with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, this workshop gives participating students the opportunity to think through the relationship between civil rights, usually considered primary for local politics and social organization, and human rights, typically understood in international frameworks. In particular, and as a means of concretely developing this relationship, we will focus our study on civil rights in the United States with regard to race, racism, and structural oppression.

Students will participate in a number of seminar sessions with leading civil rights, human rights, and legal scholars in addition to visiting a number of historical monuments dedicated to the struggle for civil rights in the Southern United States. Participating students will further have the opportunity to meet with and discuss local organizing with community stakeholders in the greater Little Rock area in an effort to enable the application of insights learned in the seminar context to community building projects. Site visits include Little Rock Central High School, the home of Daisy Bates, and the US National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN.

Curriculum Overview:
Human Rights v. Civil Rights; US Jurisprudence and the Civil Rights – Human Rights Distinction; Legal Issues in the US Civil Rights Struggle; Role of the Church in US Civil Rights; Activism and Contemporary Struggles; Structural Racism; and Cultivating Reconciliation and Community Conversations.
