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 seminar features Ariella Azoulay, Assistant Professor of Modern Culture and Media and Comparative Literature at Brown University. Her recent books include From Palestine to Israel: A Photographic Record of Destruction and State Formation, 1947-1950 (Pluto Press, 2011); Civil Imagination: The Political Ontology of Photography (Verso, 2012); The Civil Contract of Photography (Zone Books, 2008), co-authored with Adi Ophir; and The One State Condition: Occupation and Democracy between the Sea and the River (Stanford, 2012). 

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

Part of the 
Human Rights Initiative.
