About

The Standing Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights (EMR) focuses on the closely linked areas of ethnicity, migration, indigeneity, and human rights to provide curricular and co-curricular enrichment for Harvard College students.  The committee serves as a clearinghouse for courses giving attention to fluid group boundaries that emerge nationally and internationally within contexts of forced and voluntary migration. Questions of rights and specifically human rights—including political, legal, cultural, and economic rights—occupy an important position within studies of shifting ethnic landscapes. 

EMR is a vibrant and thriving community on campus including faculty, staff, and students. 
The Committee hosts events, publishes a cross-listed course list, offers student research grants, connects students to mentors, and has a growing contingent of secondary concentrators.

Sliver of a Full Moon

 
Kathryn Nagle, an attorney and citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, wrote Sliver of a Full Moon so that Native women survivors of violence could share their stories.

Sliver of a Full Moon is a powerful reenactment of the historic congressional reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 2013: a movement that restored the authority of tribal governments to prosecute non-Native abusers who assault and abuse Native women on tribal lands. 
 
This week a video of the full event was posted online. You may view it now: www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/video/sliver-full-moon-play-reading-and-discussion.
