Please join us for this open lecture related to Professor Rosenberg’s
forthcoming book, After Human Rights: Literature, Visual Arts, and Film in Latin
America (1990-2010). His recent work traces how contemporary cultural
production in Latin America encounters and reveals the insufficiency of state-centered
terms and institutions concerned with enacting justice. As the
language of rights has come to define both the horizon of the possible and the
limits of the imaginable, he analyzes films, visual arts, and literary works that
problematize the intersection of the logic of market-globalization and the
discourse of rights in the formation of political subjectivities, as they generate
both (capital) value and (human) dignity.
