Call for Submissions: Section on HR Fall 2017 Newsletter – “Rights Under Siege”

Dear Section on Human Rights Members,

We invite you to submit pieces for the fall 2017 section newsletter, “Rights Under Siege.” The attack on human rights has multiple fronts: it is a security issue and an immigration one. It is the ban on the trans gender community, Muslims, and the undocumented.  It is the attack on gender and sexual equity, communities of color, indigenous communities, and undocumented migrants. We would love to read personal accounts of challenging the siege on human rights in the twenty-first century and teaching in a time of siege.

We welcome: Interviews, personal accounts, research pieces, scholarly articles, teaching notes, and grassroots notes.
