From the organizers of the symposium:

Global Human Rights, Sexualities, Vulnerabilities Symposium

April 12-13, 2013

Ohio Union, Multicultural Center, Suite 1000

Keynote Address, April 12, 2013 (4:30-6:00 reception following)

Professor Jasbir Puar "Bodies with New Organs: Becoming Trans, Becoming Disabled”

Full-Day Symposium, April 13, 2013 (9:00-6:00, reception following)

The symposium brings into critical conversation the fields of queer studies, disability studies, and human rights, with particular attention to how the discourse of human rights maps vulnerability onto certain bodies—but not others--and how these bodies take on the burden of representation in domestic and international politics and law. The symposium consists of four panels, each consisting of three speakers, and a featured luncheon speaker.

Featured Luncheon Speaker (1:00-2:00)

Professor Jacqueline Jones Royster "Slavery by Yet Another Name: Human Rights, Civil Rights, and 21st Century Human Trafficking”

All events are open to the public. Early registration is encouraged. Registration is free. Registrants will receive on-line access to panelists’ papers one week prior to the event.
