Ecce Homo Symposium
A three day symposium on ethics, engagement and human rights will be held beginning on April 18, 2017, and continuing on April 20, 2017 and April 21, 2017 in DAUGHERTY HALL on the University of Delaware Campus. Featuring well-known speakers in the field of human rights including Dr. Cornel West of Harvard University as keynote speaker, the symposium seeks to foster a dialogue between the public, the University community, and scholars whose work deals with the issue of human rights through the ages from a variety of perspectives. The event is organized in the belief that public discussions on human rights are of particular importance in a historical moment charged with humanitarian crises and xenophobic nationalism.
The event is sponsored by The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, in partnership with the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Philosophy, The Center for Global and Area Studies, Black American Studies, and Jewish Studies at the University of Delaware.
