In the academic year 2009 -- 2010, three CHASS faculty members and seventy-five first year students set out to explore Human Rights in their year-long CHASS Connect sequence. In the Fall of 2009, Prof. David Pion-Berlin (Political Science) introduced the students to the meaning, evolution, and theories of Human Rights. Prof. Perry Link (Comparative Literature) took over for Winter 2010 and used specific case studies to discuss Human Rights in contemporary China.. Using the fundamentals of the stage such as storytelling, acting design and directing, the students created their own performance pieces during Spring 2010 with the help of Prof. Rickerby Hinds (Theater). The video, "Awake Humans, Arise" presents a short take of the Human Rights Capstone project. For more information about the CHASS Connect program please go to www.chassf1rst.ucr.edu.
