Daniel Berthold, Mariel Fiori, Peter Rosenblum, and Zelda Bas: "Human Rights Panel"
Introduced by Thomas Bartscherer
Part of the ROSTRUM series, hosted by The Language and Thinking Program at Bard College languageandthinking.bard.edu
Daniel Berthold, Professor of Philosophy at Bard College; Mariel Fiori, Editor of La Voz; Peter Rosenblum, Professor of International Law and Human Rights, Bard College; and Zelda Bas student at Bard College and member of the Bard Palestinian Youth Initiative spoke in Olin Hall on the Bard campus on August 14, 2013.
While Bard College is certainly “a place to think,” it is also a place where students are encouraged to be engaged citizens, and where innovative ideas about education and social justice have been nurtured and have led to the founding of unique programs and projects that have social and political implications far beyond the Annandale campus. This panel showcases several of these initiatives—some of them founded by Bard students during their undergraduate years–and invites participants and students to reflect on the relationship between academic study and social and political engagement.
