Contemporary constant circulation and reshaping of human rights in the social imagination make it more and more difficult to grasp all their manifestations and all the echoes they leave in both law and literature.

This summer school aims to engage with law and literature not only to consider how these fields treat human rights and engage in human rights discourse, but also to explore how human rights alter the face of both literature and law, particularly through modifying their aesthetic forms. In this sense, the school strives to shift the accent from a sentimental kind of discourse about human rights within Law and Literature to the comprehension of how we talk about human rights and how this manner of talking strengthens or weakens them.

Course leader

Mr. Kostiantyn Gorobets (Faculty of Law);
Mrs. Yuliia Khyzhniak (Faculty of Law);
Advisor: Prof. Dr. Pablo Valdivia Martin (Faculty of Arts)

Target group

This summer school is designed for graduate and undergraduate students, as well as postgraduate students (PhD, Post Docs), researchers and other external parties, including practitioners.
