Harboring Stories: Reflections on the Ethics of Collecting Others Stories, with Dr. Autumn Quezada-Grant

Human rights work entails complicated junctures of seeing, reading and the telling of stories. How do we internalize our work? What are the intersections between we as scholars and how we use our knowledge to connect theory to praxis? What are our roles in the public sphere and our university world? How can we think about sharing stories, images of persons beyond our border?

This talk intends to reflect on my own work as a country conditions expert for asylum seekers, but hopes to reach application in how we within the human rights field think about and do our work in ways that do not render peoples as subjects, but rather actors in some of the most important stories today as we witness history.
