HECUA Northern Ireland: Democracy and Social Change

Today, Northern Ireland offers an example of the vast dimensions of transition from conflict to democracy. Students examine the historical, political and religious roots of the conflict in Northern Ireland, the prospects for peace, and the progress being made. Through readings, lectures, discussions, internships, group and independent study projects and field experiences this program invites interaction with people involved in social change. The program explores theoretical approaches to understanding conflict and its transformation as well as the processes underway in Northern Ireland to create a sustainable democracy. Field seminars focus on human rights, equality, conflict transformation and education for democracy and help students see in action the tools used to transform conflict. A seven-week internship, either in Belfast or Londonderry/Derry, allows students to be directly involved in efforts toward a peaceful future. The diverse perspectives gained at the internship will help students explore how society is progressing and analyze the cultural traditions and resources available for building a sustainable and inclusive democracy. Internship sites ultimately provide an opportunity to do meaningful work that makes a difference. Some organizations are grassroots with a local focus, while others are international in scope. Finally, each student carries out an independent study project on a topic of her/his choice, which includes field research. NOTE: Fall program begins in 2014.

HECUA Norway: The New Norway: Globalization, National Identity, and the Politics of Belonging

The New Norway program investigates dramatic changes in Northern Europe by critically analyzing the development of the Norwegian welfare state through a wide range of topics such as globalization theories, nation-building and national identity, governance and political party systems, European integration, racial thinking, histories of racialization, international aid politics, sexuality, and environmentalism. The topical organization of the program is cumulative and deliberately contradictory, illuminating the international relevance of the Scandinavian case study. In addition to course work, meetings with political parties and community organizations in the program’s home base of Oslo give students firsthand insight into policy-making and community organizing in Norway. As a result of their analysis of the Scandinavian context, students are equipped to think critically about their experience in the United States.

HECUA Twin Cities: Inequality in America: Policy, Community, and the Politics of Empowerment

In the Inequality in America: Policy, Community, and the Politics of Empowerment program students actively delve into major challenges of our time: poverty, inequality and social change. The program pursues three major framing questions utilizing a number of relevant and contested theories to frame the discussion throughout the semester. The questions are: What are some of the root causes of increasing levels of economic, political, social inequality and insecurity and how does this impact all social classes and groups in the United States? How are economic, political, and social inequality reproduced? How do we create more opportunity for all Americans squeezed by economic, political, and social inequality and what are some concrete social change tools for making these changes? To understand these questions the program looks at the economy, housing systems, education, welfare, government policies, urban sprawl, regional race and class segregation, and institutional discrimination. Connecting these issues is at the core of the program. Instead of just learning about these problems, students explore solutions and become engaged in organizations committed to social transformation. Students have direct conversations and work with practitioners in government, the private sector, nonprofit social change organizations, academia, labor unions, schools, and other community institutions that in one way or another claim to be addressing some aspect of economic, political, and social inequality and poverty. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota is increasingly diverse and in some areas still has a strong and vibrant economy, yet many people are not sharing in this vitality. As in most large urban regions there is a growing gap between the rich and poor, increasing geographic and social segregation and polarization between these groups. Forty-five percent of the children in the “core” of the Twin Cities live at or below the poverty line, and an educational gap between racial groups worries many policymakers, parents, educators and students. Through critical thinking set into action, HECUA students analyze policy, lobby elected officials and engage communities. This program focuses on learning the basics of organizing in communities and workplaces, persuading others to become critically engaged, and learning to act as an effective advocate for issues and people. Building these skills is valuable for social change.

International Human Rights Exchange

The International Human Rights Exchange (IHRE) is the world’s only full-semester, multidisciplinary program in human rights. Each semester, undergraduate students and faculty from Southern Africa, North America, and other regions of the world come together to participate in a deep and multi-faceted intellectual engagement with human rights. The IHRE program is housed at the University of the Witwatersrand (also known as Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa and is a joint venture with Bard College. IHRE inspires and activates students by advancing their knowledge and experience of human rights. Program activities include: Rigorous and thought-provoking classes taught in a seminar style, including a core course on the international human rights framework and a practicum on human rights advocacy; A multidisciplinary selection of elective courses, connecting human rights concerns to: development, gender, and culture; literature, media, and theatre; philosophy, politics and social work; *A hands-on, mentored internship with a leading NGO working on the frontlines of social change; Guest lectures offered by leading luminaries in the human rights field; * An exploration of human rights challenges off-campus through human rights workshops, visits to key sites such as Soweto and the Apartheid Museum, and other cultural activities; and Membership in a diverse and global community of students and scholars committed to human rights. IHRE believes that the subject of human rights provides an excellent framework for realizing the goal of liberal education. The program aims to provide a challenging and rewarding experience by: enabling critical and creative thinking about human rights: developing a democratic understanding of people’s role in society; linking academic work with activism, advocacy, and building a culture of human rights; implementing student-centered learning; and establishing relationships of equality, mutuality, and exchange among participants. We seek to promote a critical understanding of human rights as part of a broad intellectual and social movement, not simply as a code or set of laws. We believe that human rights is a discourse in transformation (and often in contest) that is best understood through a multidisciplinary approach extending to the humanities, social sciences, arts, and sciences.
