People's University: Human Rights - now through December

People's U: Human Rights

In order to explore the sources, achievements, extensions, deviations, critiques, and challenges of what we collectively call "Human Rights," the Ohio County Public Library, in partnership with the Wheeling Academy of Law and Science (WALS) Foundation, has invited a diverse array of scholars from the fields of philosophy, history, sociology, law, science, technology, and communications to present different perspectives on the development of Human Rights from the ancient to the modern worlds, while also comparing American and international views. This new People's University series will conclude with a look at the challenge of sentient non-humans, including Animal Rights and Artificial Intelligence. Classes will meet at 7 pm in the library's auditorium beginning Tuesday, October 30.
