Toward an Affective Pedagogy of Human Rights Education
Hung, Ruyu
Journal of Pedagogy, v5 n1 p48-64 Jun 2014
This paper explores the notion of Affective Pedagogy of Human Rights Education (APHRE) on a theoretical level and suggests a concept of curricular framework. APHRE highlights the significance of affectivity and body in the process of learning, factors usually neglected in the mainstream intellectualistic approach to learning, especially in areas under the Confucian tradition. The paper's first section explores the thinking of three philosophers--Rorty, Merleau-Ponty, and Beardsley--who serve as sources for APHRE. The second section explains how their concepts contribute to APHRE's development. In the third section, a practical curricular framework is presented. Finally, the paper discusses implementing the framework and concludes by recognizing APHRE as a pedagogic approach for crossing borders among nationalities, cultures, and languages
