Writing Human Rights: The Political Imaginaries of Writers of Color

Event Description:

Crystal Parikh's Writing Human Rights: The Political Imaginaries of Writers of Color contends that unlike humanitarianism, which views its objects as victims, human rights provide avenues for the creation of political subjects. Join us for a panel discussion, with the author, exploring how the book illuminates a human rights critique of idealized American rights and freedoms that have been globalized in the twenty-first century.
