2011 Rights Conference

Date(s) of Conference:

September 15-16, 2011


San Francisco, California


Rights, both individual and collective, have long been a theme in American society, often seen in conflict with state power. Our goal is to bring together a wide variety of people from a range of academic, activist, legal, and community spaces to examine the place of rights within both the context of American society (as situated within a boarder global political community). To that end, we welcome participation from historians, both senior and junior scholars, graduate students, community advocates, archivists, and lawyers.
