In this module, Race, Rights and Legacy, we will be going into the past as a way

In this module, Race, Rights and Legacy, we will be going into the past as a way of thinking through the historical nature of human rights in terms of some of the major events that shaped international human rights law (in this case, the widespread practice and subsequent abolition of slavery) and how historical human rights issues and events may continue to shape how we think, feel about and act in relation to human rights today. We explore these issues beyond academic texts, drawing on the richness of a range of primary and secondary materials that activate various senses to immerse ourselves in the past. In weeks 8 and 9 we will be drawing on a range of visual, audio, written and sensory sources of information on slavery in the United States to go ‘back into slavery’ and consider it from multiple different angles. This will provide the scaffolding for discussion, in Week 10, of some key issues in respect to race, legacy and rights in the more recent Australian context. Students will write a critical 600-700-word reflection on the role of going back into the past and using non-academic texts to enhance our understanding of and engagement with human rights issues today. Students should use the following questions as a guide: 1. How did “going into slavery” through engagement with a wide range of audio, visual and other sensory texts shape your understanding of the issue of slavery? a. For example, what role does seeing through other eyes play in understanding, and therefore responding to, human rights issues? (Seeing through other eyes may for instance include engaging with the testimony of those who experienced slavery or have shared their experiences as descendants of slavery, or for students who are descendants of slavery hearing the stories of those who have experienced it in other contexts or through the testimonies of slave-owners). b. How do you think might the everyday lived experience of slavery shape the actions of those living in slavery and/or slave owners and others implicated in supporting slavery? c. When we look at the experience and trauma of the past, how does it help explain where we are in the present in terms of race relations? some sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmQvofAiZGA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYqllZ3kdrc
