Ethics Under Oppression

Fall 2019

Taught By: Asad Haider

Section: A

CRN: 7043

Credits: 3

This course will explore ethical questions posed by resistance to oppression, understood in a range of forms. We will begin by examining the canonical prototypes of resistance to oppression and the notions of rights, universalism, freedom, equality, and emancipation they put forward. We will then study the challenges to these notions and their geographical, economic, racial, and sexual boundaries. The readings combine philosophical texts with conceptual genealogies and historical case studies.
