Symposium: Indictment of Child Labor by the Arts


Location: Room 1140, Eck Hall of Law

How do the arts expose, dramatize, and indict child labor – and what impact do these actions have beyond the arts?

A panel discussion, including speakers Carlos Arejola, Anton Juan, and Terrance Coonan, will address how the power of “fictionalized” depictions of child labor in the arts differ from the impact of the “raw facts” upon which lawyers and scholars tend to focus their attention.

A reception in Eck Commons will follow the panel discussion.

This discussion is presented as part of the Center for Civil and Human Rights’ multi-day symposium “Indictment of Child Labor by the Arts.”

The symposium is an inter-disciplinary exploration of the ways that the dramatic arts have focused attention on the problems of child labor, this event will bring together both literary and legal scholars, and will include theatrical performance, film, and panel discussion.
