Human Rights Discourse in Antebellum America

Friday, July 1, 2016 - 11:50am
NeMLA 2017, Baltimore, March 23-26
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel will explore the presence of eighteenth-century human rights discourse in antebellum American culture. We will have two goals: first, to seek persistences of eighteenth-century human rights theory even as it was eclipsed by discourses of Nationalism, European Imperialism, Anglo-Saxonism, scientific racism, economic determinism, and so on in the nineteenth century; second, to articulate the relationship of Enlightenment cosmopolitanism to the forces that would stifle it during the period between the American/French Revolutions and the post-WWII resurgence of human rights.
