About this Guide

This guide is designed to help students enrolled in the Human Rights curriculum with their primary and secondary research. Some Human Rights class  sections will attend a library instruction session that explains and demonstrates much of what you see in this guide.

I will update the guide as new resources become available. You can help me to make the guide more useful by sending me comments and suggestions via the Feedback tool below.


  • Struggles for Freedom: South Africa (Aluka)
    The liberation of Southern Africa was one of the major political developments of the 20th century. The demise of Portuguese colonial rule, the end of white settler domination, and the dismantling of the apartheid regime had far-reaching consequences not only for the people in the region but for the global community. The Struggles for Freedom content area focuses on the complex and varied liberation struggles in the region.
  • Patterns of Global Terrorism
    Features a collection of reports that focuses on patterns of global terrorism, presented by the Public Affairs section of the Embassy of the United States of America in Stockholm.
  • Church in the Southern Black Community
    Traces how Southern African Americans experienced and transformed Protestant Christianity into the central institution of community life, beginning with white churches' conversion efforts, especially in the post-Revolutionary period, and depicts the tensions and contraditions between the egalitarian potential of evangelical Christianity and the realities of slavery. It focuses, through slave narratives and observations by other African American authors, on how the black community adapted evangelical Christianity, making it a metaphor for freedom, community, and personal survival.
  • Dinur Center for Research in Jewish History
    The Center aims to promote research in Jewish History throughout the ages, from the biblical to contemporary eras in both Israel and the Diaspora.
