Driving in India: A Personal Story of Life, Tea, and Human Rights Research in the 21st Century

A Talk by Professor Peter Rosenblum

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Peter Rosenblum has recently come to Bard after 10 years at Columbia Law School and 7 years at Harvard. He has been working in and with human rights for the past twenty years -- as an advocate, an academic and, sometimes, (like everyone else) just some guy reacting to the world around him.  

"Driving in India" is a reflective monologue about those roles combined in what is, among other things, an investigation of fairtrade tea plantations in India.  It is a work in progress that aspires to be entertaining while conveying something about tea, India and doing human rights in the 21st century.

Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Location: Olin, Room 102
