UPDATE: Resistance to Tyranny: Representing the Struggle for Human Rights (3/10/06; NYCEA, 4/28/06-4/29/06)

New due date:

            In an interview with Amnesty International , Chilean writer and activist Ariel Dorfman explains
            that, despite efforts to silence survivors of human rights violations, "Somehow the stories do come
            out, those voices do come out. I am not their voice: I make a space for those voices, a bridge."
            Dorfman's insights raise questions about the role of literature in the struggle for human rights.
             How do writers represent often unspeakable crimes against humanity and create a cultural memory that
            recognizes the forgotten or marginalized voices from the past? What does it mean to bear witness
            through literature?
