Trafficking Women's Human Rights – Julietta HuaAugust 31, 2016
The Human Trafficking Awareness Initiative will welcome Dr. Julietta Hua, author of, Tafficking Women’s Human Rights, to campus for an invited lecture on September 15, at 5:00 pm, in the Anatol Center. The history of human beings bought and sold, forced into lives of abject servitude or sexual slavery, is a story as old as civilization and yet still a global concern today. How this story is told, Hua argues, says much about our cultural beliefs. Through a critical inquiry into representations of human trafficking, she reveals the political, social, and cultural strains underlying our current preoccupation with this issue and the difficulty of framing human rights in universal terms. Her investigation uncovers dark assumptions about race, difference, and the United States’ place in the world.
