The Berkeley Human Rights Seminar invites distinguished scholars across disciplines to present their recent research on human rights. Hosting several lectures and a book roundtable each semester, the seminar brings these scholars into conversation with the Berkeley community. The theme for the 2012 -13 seminar lectures is “The Recent History of Human Rights.”
This seminar features Michael Rosen (Harvard), discussing his book, Dignity: Its History and Meaning (Harvard 2012), in conversation with Stefan-Ludwig Hoffmann (History), Zachary Manfredi (Rhetoric), and Hans Sluga (Philosophy). Moderated by Martin E. Jay (History).
