Honors Course Information

First Section-Students will critically analyze primary source documents and engage in class discussion on the ideas contained in those documents and the implications of those writings for our understanding of the unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness. Students will complete a series of reflective comparative essays during the semester.


Second Section -International Human Rights-The Idea of Human Rights

In this tutorial, students will explore the historical development of the concept of human rights and examine the ideas, instruments, and institutions that form the basis of modern human rights law. Students will engage in discussion of critical themes and controversies in the field of human rights through a close reading of historical texts, charters, declarations, and treaties, such as the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, the National Human Rights Action Plan of the People’s Republic of China, and the International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Class time also will be devoted to examining contemporary events through a human rights perspective and conducting an experiential exploration of human rights claims and controversies in Columbia, Missouri.

Additional Comments

I listed Justin Dyer as my Chair because I am teaching this course as part of my course load for the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy, of which he is the Director.

I was unsure what to list for workload percentage. This course comprises 1/12 of my 2016-2017 12 hour course load.

Days and time for second section-2:00-2:50 on Tuesdays in Jesse 410/ Or if possible make both sections TBD and I'll work with students to find a day and time that works for them.
Carla Whitney (whitneycm) (Tue, 04 Oct 2016 18:45:32 GMT): Added overview for second section and day and time for second section per Carli's e-mail 10/04/2016.
Patricia Luckenotte (luckenottep) (Wed, 02 Nov 2016 20:40:21 GMT): Classes are listed as GN_HON 2010H, 02 and section 04 for Spring 2017
