​​Human Rights, Literature, the Arts, and Social Sciences International Conference​
October 30 - 31, 2015
Campus of Central Michigan University
View website

The international conference will emphasize the role of literature (the Humanities), the Arts, Social Sciences and the Law in the discussion, representation, and promotion of human rights. We wish to bring writers, artists, theorists, scholars, and lawyers into a series of conversations that engage the issue of human rights, including the ethical, political, social, economic, and cultural implications of either violations or the constructions of human rights.   

In addition to our continued emphasis on the rights of indigenous peoples, the 2015 conference will focus on the following: health and human trafficking (modern-day slavery of women, men, and children, child soldiering, debt bondage, and forced marriages), paying attention to how human trafficking intersects with a wide range of other human rights topics. We hope to examine the nature, causes, and implications of human trafficking within local, national, and global contexts. What factors contribute to or enable human trafficking? What factors and policies—local, national, and global encourage or undermine combating the problem? What are the implications of human trafficking for health as a right?  What are the connections between health and human rights as well as the preservation of human dignity? 

Keynote Speaker:
Barbara L. McQuade is the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. She was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2009. She previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Detroit for 12 years and Deputy Chief of the National Security Unit from 2005 to 2009.​
