On 17-18 October, the Irish Centre for Human Rights will be hosting the second annual Irish-American Seminar on Human Rights, in partnership with the Centre for Civil and Human Rights of the University of Notre Dame, in the United States. Here is the draft programme.
As you can see, it is a bit eclectic, because it seeks to provide an informal gathering at which colleagues from the two institutions - and others - can present papers on areas of interest in the field of human rights. All are welcome, by the way. If you wish to attend, please contact Alexis Bushnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a bit of a literary theme. The second day will be held at Galway's legendary bookstore, Kenny's Book Shop. We will have several papers dealing with human rights aspects of literature.
