The sixth volume of the Journal of Hate Studies, published by the Gonzaga Institute for Action Against Hate at Gonzaga University, is now available. The theme of this year’s edition is “Hate and Gender.”
In addition to academic papers on the topic, this Journal includes interviews with Jane Elliott, creator of the well-known “Blue Eyes, Brown Eyes” experiment, and Nonie Darwish, founder of Arabs for Israel. Both activists spoke at Gonzaga during the 2007-2008 academic year. In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. 40 years ago, Elliott devised her controversial and startling exercise in which participants are labeled as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes. The exercise exposes them to the experience of being a minority.
Now in its 10th year, the Institute for Action Against Hate is a nonprofit group working to understand and combat hate within the Inland Northwest, the Northwest, and the nation through education, research and advocacy.
The Journal may be purchased for $25 by sending a check to: Gonzaga Institute for Action Against Hate, Gonzaga University, AD Box 43, Spokane, WA 99258-0043 or by calling (509) 313-3665.
