This “Especially for Students” lecture will feature Catherine Masud, assistant professor-in-residence at the University of Connecticut. She was jointly appointed by the Gladstein Family Human Rights Institute and the Department of Digital Media and Design.

 Human rights-themed archival collections at the University of Connecticut are a tremendous resource for teaching and research. Built around a core collection of papers from the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, the university’s collections have grown to encompass an increasingly diverse array of topics. Masud will discuss how she has used these materials as a powerful tool to engage students with history and human rights, empowering them as archivists, interpreters, and storytellers while also working collaboratively with local communities to build new archives using oral history and digitized family artifacts. She will also share some of the ethical and technical challenges of digital archival work, as well as lessons learned through this innovative pedagogical approach to human rights education.

Sponsored by the Undergraduate Program in Genocide and Human Rights Concentration (Ina and Haskell Gordon Endowed Fund).
