Images and Human Rights Local and Global Perspectives
Images and Human Rights. Local and Global Perspectives
Nancy Lipkin Stein, Alison Dundes Renteln (eds)
Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2017
This book explores issues of creation, distribution, and control of images through official and unofficial sources, asking what impact that has had on human rights and what the ethical implications are.
The volume includes research from healthcare advocates, human rights scholars and activists, photographers, and visual anthropologists who see a need for more careful contextual interpretation of images in global and local settings. It represents diverse forms of scholarship and the ever-changing field of research methodologies, and it examines how human rights issues take advantage of visual methodologies and how the visual works to communicate these issues with the public. As such, this collection will be useful for researchers studying in the fields of visual culture and human rights.
