This seminar comprises a series of sessions devoted to the topic of creative human rights. We explore the ‘ethical internationalization’ of human rights research and practice through a creative and arts-based approach.
Session 1 introduces the ideas and options for creative output, while also opening up questions on the politics of research methods. Session 2 examines transdisciplinary approaches to intersectoral cooperation and collaboration. We discuss the contribution of creativity and questions of research ethics under conditions of generalized epistemic crisis and ‘post-normal science.’ Sessions 3 and 4 comprise the Creative Human Rights Workshops, including the visual art and documentary with Ai Wei Wei’s artwork ‘Human Flow’ (2017) responding to the ‘migration crisis’ of 2016, together with Itamar Mann’s response from the field of human rights litigation, ‘Attack by Design.’ During the last session we will collaboratively present and discuss examples, formats, and templates for writing on the seminar’s topics.
The seminar is open to all.
