4/12-13/13 OH: Global Human Rights, Sexualities, Vulnerabilities Symposium
 Global Human Rights, Sexualities, Vulnerabilities Symposium 


April 12-13, 2013
The Ohio State University

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.

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.

Full conference program and registration information are available at:

Sponsored by the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies; College of Arts and Science; Department of English; Disability Studies; DISCO; Humanities Institute (Human Rights Working Group); Office of Diversity and Inclusion; Mershon International Center; Project Narrative; Sexuality Studies; and Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
