When we talk about human rights, we’re usually solidly in the expertise of political scientists. But professors of English and philosophy may have a role to play, too. That’s the goal of The Second Annual Conference on Human Rights and the Humanities. It’s being held by the National Humanities Center, and it brings together a variety of experts to discuss human rights.
One of them is Anat Biletzki, a professor of philosophy at both Quinnipiac University in Connecticut and Tel Aviv University. Host Frank Stasio talks to her about the conference.
