Human Rights Week

Gallatin will host a panel discussion and a gallery opening that will explore the mediation of human rights abuses as well as a symposium on the School's own Global Fellowship in Human Rights Program.

Photo Panel & Gallery Opening
Monday, September 21, 6:30 - 9pm

Photographers and human rights experts will participate in the panel discussion "Lost to History: Covering Conflict in the Age of Eternal Protest." Participants will include professional photographers Andrea Bruce and Ron Haviv in conversation with Emma Daly, the communications director for Human Rights Watch.

The panel marks the opening of a related exhibit in the Gallatin Galleries, Lost to History: Covering Conflict in the Age of the Eternal Present, that features the work of Andrea Bruce, Ron Haviv, Emily Pederson (Gallatin BA '12), and Karanjit Singh (TSOA BFA '16). Pederson and Singh were both Gallatin Global Human Rights Fellows, in 2011 and 2015, respectively.
