Re-imagining Human Rights

Event Recap of Writing Human Rights: The Political Imaginaries of Writers of Color, 3/20/18

On March 20, Lisa Duggan (NYU),  Jeffrey Flynn (Fordham University), and Cristina Beltran (NYU) came together to discuss Crystal Parikh’s (NYU) new book Writing Human Rights: The Political Imaginaries of Writers of Color.

As Beltran and Parikh discussed, the book puts Human Rights discourse and principle into conversation with modern writers of color to illuminate the ethical re-imagining of political subjects and their human rights.

After the panelists’ remarks, the audience raised questions and engaged with the methodology presented by Parikh. We concluded with a reception and a book signing.
