Philosophy at UWS and the Writing and Society Research Centre are organising an "Encountering the Author" seminar on Joseph Slaughter's book Human Rights Inc. The World Novel, Narrative Form, and International Law

[cid:bb602319-d1eb-40cf-3d82-3ea399edad16]Date: Tuesday April 15
Time: 3.30 to 5.00 pm
Location: Bankstown Campus, Building 3, room 3.G.27
[How to get to Bankstown Campus]<http://www.uws.edu.au/campuses_structure/cas/campuses/bankstown>

Joseph Slaughter will discuss his important book, followed by responses from Ben Golder (Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law at the University of New South Wales), Ben Etherington (Research Lecturer in the Writing and Society Research Centre at the University of Western Sydney), and Jessica Whyte (Cultural and Social Analysis, UWS--participating chair.)

In this timely study of the historical, ideological, and formal interdependencies of the novel and human rights, Joseph Slaughter demonstrates that the twentieth-century rise of “world literature” and international human rights law are related phenomena.

He teaches and publishes in the fields of postcolonial literature and theory, African, Caribbean, and Latin American literatures, postcolonialism, narrative theory, human rights, and 20th-century ethnic and third world literatures.
