2017 ELLAK International Conference
December 13th-15th, 2017
Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea

Narrating Rights: Literary Texts and Human, Nonhuman, and Inhuman Demands

Unpacking and dispersing rights of various kinds formerly enjoyed by a selected few has been the constant motivation behind the democratization and modernization of human society. Human rights and later civil rights have continuously been constituted and reconstituted in response to the demands of the laboring class, slaves, women, subalterns, animals, and things, expanding beyond the boundaries of class, race, nation, sexuality, gender, species and organism. Calling attention to the ways in which literary and cultural texts have narrated rights so as to inscribe these human, nonhuman, and inhuman demands, “Narrating Rights” offers opportunities to interrogate the lasting contributions of English language and literature to questioning, reforming and practicing rights.

The interrogation is particularly pertinent in this age in which revised and dispersed rights are creating new conflicts, requiring them to be narrated differently and imaginatively so as to allow all the parties in conflict to participate in working out the conflicts. “Narrating Rights” is a double-edged task that, on one hand, reflects the singular life conditions or contexts of a human, inhuman or nonhuman being and, on the other hand, aspires to the perpetual process of rights’ universal application. The 2017 ELLAK International Conference invites literary scholars to discuss how this task has been and will be performed, and thus aims to renew the close, interactive relationship between literature and rights.

Topics may include the following subjects but are not limited to them:

1. Rights discourse and narrative/counter-narrative
2. Animal rights and biopolitics/bioethics
3. Natural rights/civil rights
4. Gender, sexuality and rights
5. Cultural rights and identity
6. Rhetoric and narratology of rights
7. Rights, (in)justice, and sovereignty
8. Rights and mobility
9. Border crisis and refugee rights
10. Ecological/posthuman rights
11. Rights and (post)colonialism/cosmopolitanism
12. Racial discourses and rights
13. Rights and generational differences
14. Rights and community
15. Rights in cyberspace
16. Rights and education
17. Censorship and freedom of speech/writing

To apply for participation, submit your abstract and CV to 2017ellak@gmail.com by 30 May 2017.
