GNSS 2010L - What Are Human Rights? Imperial Origins, Curatorial Practices, and Non-Imperial Ground
The discourse of human rights and curatorial practices are technologies dating to the invention of the “New World.” This seminar will develop a wide historical perspective and pose ontological and political questions that deviate from a tradition that studies human rights as a distinct discourse with its own history whose origins are European and located in either the revolutions of the eighteenth century; the end of World War II and the foundation of the United Nations; or the 1970s, with the proliferation of non-governmental organizations and from the tradition that limits the study of curatorial practices to designated indoor spaces.
