|This course will explore the intersection of literature and human rights with a focus on war, migration, and poverty. We will look at artistic expression in different forms, including critical essay, short story, film, fiction and non-fiction to examine how literary representation and other forms of cultural production shape our understanding of human rights discourse and practice. With a focus on the linked relation between war, migration, poverty, and human rights, the course will explore how literature help us understand “others” in terms of their struggle, pain, and suffering, and how that understanding becomes a common ground as well as limits for imagining “universal” human rights.
