About this book

Visual Imagery and Human Rights Practice examines the interplay between images and human rights, addressing how, when, and to what ends visuals are becoming a more central means through which human rights claims receive recognition and restitution. The collection argues that accounting for how images work on their own terms is an ever more important epistemological project for fostering the imaginative scope of human rights and its purchase on reality. Interdisciplinary in nature, this timely volume brings together voices of scholars and practitioners from around the world, making a valuable contribution to the study of media and human rights while tackling the growing role of visuals across cultural, social, political and legal structures.

Reviews

“We inhabit a world of increased visual recording, surveillance and creative expression and at a time when the protection of human rights has never been so widely shared. This book incisively reflects on these converging trends.” (Simon Cottle, Professor, Cardiff University, UK)

“At a time when, from Beijing to Washington DC the very term 'human rights' is denounced, and autocrats and kleptocrats proliferate, this is a fine sampling of activist experience - ammunition for the 2020s.” (John D.H. Downing, Editor, Encyclopedia of Social Movement Media)

“Price and Ristovska have assembled a rich, diverse, and essential collection of essays, one that shows just how productive it can be to focus on media if we want to renew the political force of human rights discourse.” (Thomas Keenan, Director of the Human Rights Project and Associate Professor of Comparative Literature, Bard College, USA)
