Human Rights, History, and Literature

The Human Rights, History, and Literature working group explores the interconnections between literature, human rights, and history.

This working group seeks to explore the interconnections between literature, human rights and history. Our readings will include excerpts or full texts from legal studies, history, literary studies, along with primary texts which may include novels, short stories, and films. Ideally this working group will be one in which everyone can contribute their ideas, suggesting readings which are of interest to them, so that we can foster an open interdisciplinary environment where a wide array of interests are met.

Law and Contemporary Theory

A group that studies the points of contact between the law and other fields of study.

The Law and Contemporary Theory working group brings together scholars in the humanities and social sciences to study jurisprudence, contemporary legal theory, critical legal theory, law and literature, socio-legal studies, law and film, and additional points of contact between the law and other fields of study. This working group will be largely self-directed so that students and professors can bring their own work and interests to discussions.
