This conference aims to explore the interface between creative/critical forms of representation and the claim to material/ontological human and animal rights. It will examine the concepts 'minority', 'identity', 'rights' and 'representation' and their possible intersections. It will also interrogate categories and politics of identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, age, and disability, as well as the critical disciplines that invest in these, such as feminism, postcolonialism, and cultural studies.
