Transnational Humanity: The Invention of Human Rights through the
Nineteenth-Century Novel

This ACLA seminar will explore the transatlantic invention of human
rights, and the construction of the multivalent discourse of "humanity,"
through the nineteenth-century novel. Novels have participated in
directing and redirecting the discourse of the "human"â€"the human as closed
system, as biopolitical species-being unit, as rational individualâ€"by
charting interiorities that are deemed to constitute a "human."
