About

Different manners of contemplating and picturing human rights (law, politics, literature, arts, etc.) interact and the narratives often conflict with one another. How do all such narratives contribute to the promotion of respect for human rights? The Construction Human Rights Narratives programme is offered at the University of Groningen.

Overview

The programme

  • Our summer school at the University of Groningen offers you an opportunity to reflect on these issues by looking at different aspects of human rights narration. Narratives are a powerful tool for organising and making sense of human experience which we can use for both strengthening and weakening human rights ideas. What are the ways of using this tool? What does the law have to offer in this sense? After all, it is the law that makes strong claims for being the main creator of human rights narratives. Can other cultural representations of human rights unpack and analyse limitations of the law?
  • Within the Construction Human Rights Narratives summer school we will look at narrative not only as at an instrument for shaping our experience, but also as an instrument for self-reflection, as a revealing mirror. By examination of the already existing narrative structures we can comprehend better our rooted way of thinking, our biases and limits.

Accreditation

The course is designed for students, PhD’s, postdocs, and practitioners in literature, law, arts, and human rights.

Programme Structure

Our speakers, who are specialists in literary studies, narrative studies, human rights, Law and Literature studies, criminal law and criminology, will bring you through different topics, such as:

  • Human rights in Law and Narrative studies
  • Narrative as a tool of empowerment: vulnerable people’s cases
  • The ECtHR narrative about freedom of expression and boundaries of literature
  • Human rights: a contemporary straitjacket for humour and satire?
  • Human rights and literary genres: the interwoven stories of social changes
  • Human rights in films: narration without the narrator?

The programme of the summer school is intended for students, PhD’s, postdocs, and practitioners in literature, law, arts, and human rights. We invite you to join us in the beautiful city of Groningen, in the North of the Netherlands, to breathe in a bit of a fresh air in the middle of summer and spend a week exploring stories of human rights and marvellous places of our city.
