Subaltern Subjectivity and Embodiment in Human Rights Practices

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article problematises the representation of subaltern resistance in practices of human rights. It critiques the normative framing of the subaltern by those practices, a framing which it argues contributes to their subjugation. Against such framing, the article follows the 2011 Egyptian uprising through the film Rags & Tatters, offering a practice of freedom beyond human rights and through self-recollection.
