Beyond Human: Frameworks for Fundamental Rights

March 29 2018

This panel discussion, presented as part of Anna Craycroft’s exhibition and residency “Motion into Being,” during the Department of Education and Public Engagement’s Spring 2018 R&D Season: ANIMATION, brought together leading scholars and cultural critics to consider the legal and ethical implications of expanded definitions of personhood. Participants explored issues tied to animal rights, environmental protections, corporate personhood, reproductive rights, disability, and racial discrimination through specific case studies and cross-disciplinary conversation. Panelists included Adrian Chen, Karla F.C. Holloway, and Kelly Oliver, with Megan Hicks serving as moderator.
