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.”
