The State of the Field: Challenges & Opportunities in the Study of Human Rights

Interest in the history of human rights has grown enormously in recent years—but so too have the debates and conflicting accounts of the history. This workshop brings together leaders from a variety of disciplinary orientations whose work touches on the areas of human rights and history. The broader purpose of the workshop is to establish an interdisciplinary dialogue to better address the various meta-level problems, methodological obstacles, and intellectual roadblocks that have emerged within this relatively new subfield. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to work together to identify and propose the newest and most promising directions forward. 

University of Minnesota Law School, Mondale Hall
