Things are happening in Dayton! Today, on August 21, Dayton hosted a stellar partial solar eclipse. Well, to tell the truth, so did most of the rest of the US. But in Dayton, to top today's show, from November 8- 10, the University of Dayton Human Rights Center will host its amazing biennial human rights conference, titled The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy. Registration information is available here. Of special interest to US human rights advocates and scholars are several sessions examining local human rights implementation, plenary sessions on forced migration and modern-day slavery, and keynotes from Marielena Hincapié and Carol Anderson, among others. Speaker bios are available here.
