"We must more than ever stand on the side of human rights. We need human rights. We are in need of them and they are in need, for there is always a lack, a shortfall, a falling short, an insufficiency; human rights are never sufficient." (Jacques Derrida, Philosophy in a Time of Terror)

If human rights are insufficient yet necessary, we must then ask what to do with "rights." This conference will explore historical and theoretical definitions, constructions, and performative notions of rights. How do texts challenge predominant conceptual narratives of rights? In what ways does literature explore notions of rights outside of the juridical realm? Can we have a discourse on rights that exceeds the anthropomorphic field?

Intersections of Trauma, Memory & Narrative

This special topic session invites papers addressing the intersection of trauma, memory and narrative. What is a narrative of trauma? How are trauma narratives informed by memory, history and culture? What is the relationship between trauma and memory (or forgetting) and how does this relationship shape "ethnic" literary traditions? Particular attention will be given to papers that engage with theories of trauma studies and memory studies.
