Linguapax Asia:

2009 Linguapax Asia Symposium, Theme: Human Trafficking

Date: Sunday, June 14th, 2009 Time: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Various

With an estimated 900,000 victims annually, human trafficking is perhaps the major human rights issue of the 21st century. The 2009 Working Session of Linguapax Asia will discuss the connection of language with human trafficking and will explore the following: How can language define the socio-political contexts of human trafficking? How has human trafficking (both labor and sexual) been described historically (e.g. biblical sources and slave narratives)? How have literary works described human trafficking? How has human trafficking been portrayed by visual media? How can the language of human experience explore human trafficking and the sex industry?
