In recent years, the connections between human rights and the arts and humanities have become newly conspicuous. Art, literature, theatre, film, TV and digital media provide insights into what it means to live in a world that is hyperconnected but at the same time politically divided.
Humanities in Human Rights is designed for postgraduate and early career researchers in the arts, humanities and social sciences who are committed to understanding the politics of humanity and human rights today.
Funded by the AHRC, led by Prof. Lyndsey Stonebridge (UEA) and Prof. Les Back (Goldsmiths) the programme opens in October 2013 with a residential weekend taught by CHASE faculty, followed by topic specific work-shops and a showcase of research in London.
Applications are welcome from scholars in the humanities, arts and social sciences currently working on human rights and relat-ed fields who are able to participate in the programme across the year. Application deadline: 15 June 2013.
Successful applicants will receive a stipend to support travel and accommodation.
