Joseph Slaughter has been appointed to the Committee on Global Thought
The Committee on Global Thought (CGT) crosses disciplinary and national borders to address the challenges of our world today. CGT welcomes two new faculty members including Joseph Slaughter, who specializes in literature, law, and socio-cultural history of the Global South (particularly Latin America and Africa). He teaches and publishes in the fields of postcolonial literature and theory, African, Caribbean, and Latin American literatures, postcolonialism, narrative theory, human rights, and Third-World approaches to International Law. He is especially interested in the social work of literature-the myriad ways in which literature intersects (formally, historically, ideologically, materially) with problems of social justice, human rights, intellectual property, and international law.
