On 30-31 July, the Centre will be hosting “Aspirational Rituals: Promises and Utopias in Human Rights”. An interdisciplinary workshop with participants from Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, and the UK, “Aspirational Rituals” will investigate the interlinked concepts of utopia and promise, and ask how the language of imagination, hope, futurity, and conclusion function in contemporary human rights. Further details can be found here.
