Event postponed: “Human Rights, Human Remains” Claire Moon, LSE
This event will be of particular interest to PPi colleagues in view of our research theme Absence/Presence and our recent events exploring disappearance in Mexico. It will be given by Dr Claire Moon, LSE, entitled ‘Human Rights, Human Remains’. The lecture will address the rise in importance of the dead body to investigations of atrocity. It will speak to three things: first, the use of forensic science to make the dead body ‘speak’ to atrocity; second, the social and political significance of human remains; and third, the implications for human rights. Specifically, it will explore whether it is possible to claim, now, that the dead have human rights.
