Authors' Rights / Human RightsAuthorsâ Rights / Human Rights
This proposed panel examines how international organizations and authorsâ associations reconfigured modernist authorship. How did authors come to have rights in the modernist period, and how were these rights analogous to human rights? Proposed papers can look at institutional configurations of authorship in international organizations like PEN International and UNESCO or domestic authorsâ associations like the Society of Authors. Papers looking at the post-WWII period, when authors faced purge trials in a number of European countries, would be especially welcome.
The panel, if accepted, would be linked to the special stream âHuman Rights, Borders, and Displacementsâ at MSA 19 (Amsterdam, 10-13 August 2017).
Please send abstracts (150-250 words) and a short bio to Marius Hentea, firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 January 2017.
