Description: Human Rights, Rites of Passage in Film and Literature Masano Yamashita, French and Italian Children and young adults are not allowed to vote, yet they dispose of fundamental human rights, including, according to the United Nations Convention of the Rights of child, the right to play. Rights are understood to be natural, self-evident and equal for everyone. Yet everyday experience shows us that this is often not the case. In this course we will first undertake an in-depth analysis of the figures of the child and the teenager. By examining films and fiction that showcase various types of youth (the child runaway, the refugee child, the transgender child, feral children), we will try to understand the intersection of childhood and politics. How do human rights take into account human development and flourishing, in other words, the right to a personal narrative? Themes pertaining to children’s rights, family law, race and gender identity will be a particular focus of this semester.
