Hate studies

Hate Studies is an interdisciplinary curriculum being developed by a consortium of academics, scholars, human rights groups, and others.

The process grew out of conversations sparked by the Gonzaga University Institute for Action against Hate which held a Conference to Establish the Field of Hate Studies in Spokane, Washington, March 20, 2004.

According to Kenneth S. Stern of the American Jewish Committee, "An academic program is desperately needed to study why hatred has been a common human experience....What you create at Gonzaga can be a model for the nation."

A number of papers presented at the conference were published in a special 'Journal of Hate Studies" issue on establishing the field of Hate Studies. [ [http://web02.gonzaga.edu/againsthate/journal3/index.html "Journal of Hate Studies" issue on establishing the field of Hate Studies] ]
