Human Rights, Human Wrongs: Slaveries and Freedoms Today
Submissions are invited by 1 May 2007
Forms of slavery, quasi-slavery and the abuse or exploitation of one group by another remain widespread in the world today. Questions which might be addressed include:
- Slavery, bondage and related un-freedoms around the world: their origins, social organisation, and cultures of validation.
- Identity formation and the Other: who needs outcastes?
- Money and mastery.
- Intervention or reform: at local, national and international levels.
- Diverse definitions of individual and collective rights and responsibilities.
- Philosophy and practice in international law.
- The past and future roles of the United Nations.
- Violence as political tool.
- Media representation and power: news from nowhere?
- Language and licence.
- Circumventing censorship.
- The cultural conundrum: can art represent abuse without abusing?
- Works that have made a difference.
Related creative submissions in any medium suitable for electronic publication are also invited.
