Please join us for a lunchtime seminar with Kate Nash entitled: “Knowing Human Rights Through Film”.

What kind of knowledge do feature-length documentary films on human rights themes produce? Film is rightly celebrated by NGOs and activists because it moves as well informs viewers. But what then makes these films different from propaganda?

Kate Nash is Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London and Faculty Fellow at the Center for Cultural Sociology, Yale University. She is author of The Political Sociology of Human Rights (Cambridge University Press 2015); and The Cultural Politics of Human Rights: Comparing the US and UK (Cambridge University Press 2009).

This event is co-sponsored by the Research Program on Humanitarianism and the Human Rights Institute.
