Human Rights, Human Wrongs: Slaveries and Freedoms Today
Submissions are invited by 1 March 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.
