The Question of Rights?

11/14/18, 6:00 – 7:30 pm, HUB North Ballroom

Honors students from the incoming class of 2017 have asked for a conversation exploring questions of human rights. We are excited to bring together Megan Ming Francis (UW Political Science), Tom Ikeda of Densho in Seattle, and Professor Angélica Cházaro (UW School of Law) on this topic. Ming-Francis works on constructions of rights and citizenship and black political activism.

Ikeda’s work is in the public humanities, exploring oral histories of survivors of World War II Japanese internment. Professor Cházaro works on critical race theory and immigration law. They each have rich, complicated perspectives to share as we examine this challenging issue, together.
