Gay Humanism and Higher Education: A Rights-based Approach

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Gay Humanism links traditional humanities disciplines, such as history, law, literature and jurisprudence with emerging disciplinary fields, such as cultural studies and gay and lesbian studies, to assert a new gay humanism for educators. The human rights topics will include questions that are currently being debated nationally and internationally as well as barriers to gay peoples’ human dignity. The book encourages interested students, academics, legal professionals and policy makers to tackle the questions of how domestic law can reflect international human rights law and standards for the benefit of LGBTIQ people in the post-AIDS world. A trans-disciplinary focus as developed in this book to compliment established disciplines such as law, history, literature and psychology may lead to a fundamental change in higher education in the future, where lesbian and gay world-views are elevated to an equal footing with the dominant learning culture and not marginalized by centuries-long unquestioned assumptions of traditional educational discourses.
