The Human Rights Seminar invites distinguished scholars across disciplines to present their recent research. Hosting several lectures and a book roundtable each semester, the seminar brings these scholars into conversation with the Berkeley community. The theme for the 2013-14 seminar lectures is “Visual Culture and Human Rights.”

This roundtable features Didier Fassin (Institute for Advanced Study) discussing his book Humanitarian Reason: A Moral History of the Present (UC Press, 2011) in conversation with UC Berkeley faculty members.

Presented by the Human Rights Program and The Townsend Center for the Humanities.

Part of the 
Human Rights Initiative.
