|Current University students
|Dr Letizia Alterno
This workshop, run by artsmethods@manchester, offers postgraduate researchers the opportunity to build up interdisciplinary links between Human Rights discourse and Literary and Critical Theory. Participants will engage in a discussion of Human Rights through exercises drawing from recent collected data on migrancy in the Mediterrenean, which will also involve discussion of current EU Asylum and Immigration policies. Examples will be drawn from the workshop leader's own research and recently organised events on asylum seekers journeying through the Mediterranean and will provide ample illustrations of how growing instances of global dehumanization and the increasing demand for human rights, particularly migrant rights, need to be recognised beyond the confining boundaries of the nation-state and its perpetuated and imagined sovereign.
Register in advance via the artsmethods@manchester Blackboard space.
