2. LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON FOLKLORISTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION
Hello all, I am a folklorist working in the rural southern United States, and my area of focus is the intersection of folklife studies/cultural studies and human rights-based education, especially as it applies to intergeneration education and oral history.
I am working on some research and a paper for the annual meeting of the American Folklore Society about some of the possibilities at the intersection of folklife studies and human rights education and how we can work together.
I am curious. Has anyone out there worked with folklorists or folklife studies before? If so, can you tell me a bit about your work? I am very curious to hear what others have done–what has worked, what hasn’t, and your general thoughts on the union. From what I can tell, folklorists have a long history of working in cultural sustainability issues, but I don’t see that many folklorists working with human rights educators, and I think that should change. I believe human rights education is much needed in public folklore work.
You can reply to me off list. Any information is much appreciated.
Sincerely, Meredith Martin-Moats, Independent Folklorist, Website: Meredith Martin, M.A. Portfolio, Blog: The Boiled Down Juice. E-mail.

3. LOOKING FOR RECOMMENDATIONS OF LITERATURE ON HUMAN RIGHTS AND CHILD RIGHTS FOR BACHELOR LEVEL STUDENTS
Dear Colleagues, I am a Norwegian lawyer currently volunteering for Save the Children in Kathmandu and responsible for a project regarding incorporating Human Rights and Child Rights in the curriculum in university courses in Nepal.
In this respect I was wondering if you could please give me some recommendations on literature on Human Rights and Child Rights for Bachelor level students (in particularly for the students of the Faculty of Education).
I would be most grateful for any recommendations in this area.
Thank you and kind regards, Kristine Aarre Haanes, E-mail.
