While the study of human rights has gained momentum over the past decade across a variety of disciplines, much remains to be gleaned from an interdisciplinary focus on human rights discourse and advocacy in their visual contexts. This volume revolves around the conceptual frameworks of human rights and visual culture, exploring the ways in which international human rights discourse inflects and is inflected by visual media, understood to represent both ultramodern and more traditional vehicles.

[UPDATE] Central European Authors--April 7-10, 2011--New Brunswick, NJ

In "The Curtain: An Essay in Seven Parts," Milan Kundera observes that Central Europe is rarely perceived as an important region in Europe. Indeed, he attests that the nations that create Central Europe 'have never been masters of either their own destinies or their borders.' As such, the countries that form Central Europe have been viewed as extensions of thriving European countries, such as Germany. Yet, the subordination of Central European countries to either Western or Eastern European nations has had drastic impacts on the writers that emerged from this region, as they have been forced to write in non-native languages, have endured political oppression, and weathered several political upheavals.
