The Program in Comparative Literature at the University of South Carolina solicits submissions for a conference entitled “The Futures of Human Rights: Moral, Legal, and Political Cultures,” to be held in Columbia , SC , Feb. 26-28, 2009.
The idea of human rights is frequently invoked in national and international discussions and yet never has this idea been so contested as it is today. This interdisciplinary conference is designed to open dialogue about the future of human rights. We welcome academic or creative submissions addressing the philosophical, legal, political, literary, sociological, or technological questions of human rights. We seek presentations that speak simultaneously to the issues of specific disciplines and to the general interests of the citizen, so that a common conversation can develop during the course of the conference. Papers should take no more than twenty minutes to read.
