Peters, Michael A. (2004). The University and the New Humanities: Professing with Derrida, Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice. Recently, Derrida has pointed to the university to come and the future of the professions within a place of resistance, and yet maintained the historical link to two ideas that mediate and condition both the humanities and the performative structure of acts of profession: human rights and crimes against humanity. Derrida (2001a) maintains that the "modern university should be unconditional", by which he means that it should have the "freedom" to assert, to question, to profess, and to "say everything" in the manner of a literary fiction. This article reviews what Derrida calls "the future of the profession or the university without conditions". Second, it focuses on a series of criticisms raised by Richard Rorty against Derrida's concept of literature and on Derrida's status as a "private ironist". Third, the article examines Derrida in relation to the ends of literature and the university, under the impact of globalization and new technologies of communication. Finally, in a postscript the article returns to the concept of the university and its postcolonial possibilities. [More] Descriptors: Civil Rights, Global Approach, Humanities, Higher Education

Latman, Joel; Walter, Cathy (1991). You Are There: The Mock Trial of Christopher Columbus. The 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's voyage to the Americas has raised a debate over how historians and teachers should portray this moment in history. Some view Columbus as a hero whose courage helped to provide a foundation for modern civilization in the Americas, while others see him as a villain who exploited indigenous people and set the stage for the further destructive acts of the Europeans who followed him. This mock trial designed either as a 3-day introductory activity, or as a 3-day concluding activity asks students in grades 6-12 to evaluate statements drawn from primary and secondary sources to determine whether or not Columbus should be found guilty of crimes against humanity. In addition to the text of the mock trial, the document lists teacher objectives, student objectives, procedures, materials, and extension activities. Five illustrations and a map are provided, as well as a student evaluation assignment. (23 references) Descriptors: History Instruction, Intermediate Grades, Learning Activities, Role Playing

Bytwerk, Randall L.; Brooks, Robert D. (1980). Julius Streicher and the Rhetorical Foundations of the Holocaust. Julius Streicher, the German publisher sentenced to death in the Nuremberg trials for rhetorical crimes against humanity, published the widely-read and virulently anti-semitic weekly tabloid "Der Stuermer" from 1923 to 1945. Through Streicher's rhetoric and through the publication's cartoons, Jews were depicted as bacilli, vampires, rats, and other loathsome, inhuman creatures. When presented in human form, Jews were depicted as extremely inferior and deformed examples of humanity, lacking the nobler attributes of humankind and possessed of mysterious powers stemming from their demonic, supremely evil natures. To support his argument that Jews were involved in a sinister conspiracy against society, Streicher presented thousands of cases of alleged Jewish crimes and devoted a tremendous amount of space to alleged Jewish attempts to destroy Gentile society through sexual corruption and murder. To counteract the belief that there were some decent Jews, Streicher presented "evidence" that each and every Jew was depraved and dangerous. Streicher's rhetoric reflected the three cardinal principles of Nazi propaganda–simplicity, repetition, and emotional appeal–and showed his sound grasp of persuasive techniques. His rhetoric, along with other Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda, isolated and distanced Jews from other Germans, gradually establishing the moral climate that sanctioned the Holocaust.

Institute for World Order, New York, NY. (1980). Denuclearization for a Just World: The Failure of Non Proliferation. The document discusses the non proliferation policies of nuclear power nations. It specifically focuses on the credibility gap which exists between the actual statements of peaceful intentions made by these nations which express the need for non proliferation of nuclear weapons and their actual conduct with regards to nuclear-related issues in international relations. Described as a declaration prepared by a group of concerned scholars and open for signature by concerned individuals throughout the world, the document is part of a project committed to encouraging research, education, dialogue, and action for a more just world order. Instances in which nuclear nations have endangered world peace are identified. These include allowing politics to become increasingly militarized, neglecting social and human services in favor of increased military expenditures, deploying strategic and nuclear missiles in Europe (both NATO and Warsaw Pact nations are guilty of this), attempting to legitimize nuclear war, considering doctrines about "winnable" nuclear wars, intervening in the political affairs of less powerful societies, and stockpiling nuclear weaponry while denying this right to nations which currently have no nuclear weapons. To promote the goals of nuclear peace and demilitarization, a five part program is recommended: (1) a no-first-use-pledge; (2) a nuclear freeze; (3) a workable timetable on arms reduction; (4) a declaration of nuclear crime which would clarify the illegality, immorality, and criminality of any threat or use of nuclear weapons; and (5) a denuclearized order, under which the possession of nuclear weapons by any state beyond a specific date would be treated as a crime against humanity. The conclusion is that denuclearization will become a viable option only if governments, associations, organizations, and individuals support demilitarization by all means at their disposal, including but not restricted to making it the central concern at international non-proliferation conferences.

Blum, Lawrence (2004). The Poles, the Jews and the Holocaust: Reflections on an AME Trip to Auschwitz, Journal of Moral Education. Two trips to Auschwitz (in 1989 and 2003) provide a context for reflection on fundamental issues in civic and moral education. Custodians of the Auschwitz historical site are currently aware of its responsibility to humanity to educate about the genocide against the Jews, as a morally distinct element in its presentation of Nazi crimes at Auschwitz. Prior to the fall of Communism in 1989, the site's message was dominated by a misleading civic narrative about Polish victimization by, and resistance to, Naziism. In this article, I discuss the attempts of many Polish intellectuals during the past twenty-five years to engage in an honest and difficult civic project of facing up to their history, as it is entwined with anti-Semitism, with the centuries-long presence of Jews in Poland, and with their current absence. An interaction with a tour guide who took me to be criticizing Poles for their failure to help Jews during the Holocaust prompts further reflections on the difficulties of grasping the moral enormity of genocide, on the dangers of stereotyping, on the conditions under which it is appropriate to proffer and to withhold well-founded moral judgements, and on the moral importance of appropriate feelings and attitudes when moral action is extraordinarily risky or dangerous.

Jacks, Margaret H.; And Others (1981). [White House Conference on Aging, 1981. Physical & Social Environment and Quality of Life. Report and Executive Summary of the Technical Committee.]. This Technical Committee Report begins by citing function as the key factor in the committee's view of quality of life and by examining four elements upon which function depends, i.e., satisfaction of basic physical needs, choice, freedom from undue stress, and the lack of a direct correlation between affluence and quality of life. Key issues and recommendations to improve the quality of life of older Americans are then enumerated. The remainder of this report addresses the areas which contribute to quality of life, including: (1) housing; (2) transportation; (3) crime against the elderly; (4) legal services; (5) arts and humanities; and (6) creative use of time. Discussions for each topic focus on the present situation, key issues, and committee policy recommendations; a bibliography is also provided for each topic. As an example of the format used for each topic, the section on housing examines the number of elderly, where they live, their status as home owners or renters, poverty, health, and the family. Suggestions to meet the housing demands of the elderly consider non-metropolitan housing programs, coordination of federal programs, funding, special architectural features, displacement, and housing choice. Findings, issues, and recommendations for each topic are provided in the executive summary of this report. [More] Descriptors: Aging (Individuals), Crime, Housing, Individual Needs
