A one-day interdisciplinary symposium to launch the Fiction and Human Rights Network at TORCH. Lawyers, literary scholars, philosophers and political theorists discuss the relationship between the modern novel and the discourse of human rights in legal theory and practice. This one-day symposium brings together an eclectic range of thinkers to analyze the ways in which the genre of fiction might or might not contribute to debates about the nature and role of dignity in human rights.
