Going Global: Exploring Human Rights in the Shadow of Nationalism

Friday, April 20, 2018


The recent rise of nationalist politics demands that we, as a global society, reexamine our collective values, priorities, and aspirations for the future we hope to build and what we believe to be fundamental human rights. As norms and ideologies shift, what is the process for expanding our view of human rights? Are nationalism and a more expansive understanding of human rights mutually exclusive? How should we respond to violations in other countries? Graduate students of all disciplines are encouraged to submit work on the meaning, purpose, and pursuit of human rights throughout history and implications for our future as a community of global citizens.

Panel topics may include, but are not limited to analyzing human rights through the lens of:

-Historical framework, abuses & responses
-Successes & failures of policies and interventions
-Migration, conflict, and the uncertainty of human rights
-Exclusion based on gender, race, ethnicity, religion, & identity
-Standard of living, access to basic needs, healthcare
-Environmental justice & tomorrow’s human rights
-Education as a right and educating about rights
-Exploring human rights through the arts

Abstracts of 150-250 words must be submitted by February 12, 2018.
