ECCE HOMO (This is a Human) Human Rights Symposium at UD






A four-day symposium on ethics, engagement and human rights was held from April 18-21, 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 fostered 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 was 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 was 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.
