THE MODES OF HUMAN RIGHTS LITERATURE Towards a Culture without Borders Michael Galchinsky The Modes of Human Rights Literature Michael Galchinsky The Modes of Human Rights Literature Towards a Culture without Borders Michael Galchinsky Georgia State University Atlanta, Georgia, USA ISBN 978-3-319-31850-9 ISBN 978-3-319-31851-6 DOI 10.1007/978-3-319-31851-6 (eBook) Library of Congress Control Number: 2016943524 © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s) 2016 This work is subject to copyright All rights are solely and exclusively licensed by the Publisher, whether the whole or part of the material is concerned, specifically the rights of translation, reprinting, reuse of illustrations, recitation, broadcasting, reproduction on microfilms or in any other physical way, and transmission or information storage and retrieval, electronic adaptation, computer software, or by similar or dissimilar methodology now known or hereafter developed The use of general descriptive names, registered names, trademarks, service marks, etc in this publication does not imply, even in the absence of a specific statement, that such names are exempt from the relevant protective laws and regulations and therefore free for general use The publisher, the authors and the editors are safe to assume that the advice and information in this book are believed to be true and accurate at the date of publication Neither the publisher nor the authors or the editors give a warranty, express or implied, with respect to the material contained herein or for any errors or omissions that may have been made Cover illustration: © Melisa Hasan Printed on acid-free paper This Palgrave Macmillan imprint is published by Springer Nature The registered company is Springer International Publishing AG Switzerland For Gideon and Rafi PREFACE In September 2004, I traveled to Russia with a delegation of academics to build connections with the emerging Jewish studies departments there, and also to interview human rights activists We could get a pretty clear sense of the state of human rights at the time just by looking at the public monuments As a marker of one Russian impulse, Tsereteli’s massive and hideous new monument of Peter the Great, sitting in the middle of the Moscow River, seemed like a portent of Putin’s imperial ambitions But the imperial impulse was countered by what we found in a sculpture park outside the Tretyakov Gallery in central Moscow This was where, after 1989, city officials brought the marble and bronze Lenins and Stalins and Dzerzhinskys, which had stood in front of government buildings and bestrewn public squares, but which now no longer had a state purpose At first, the officials brought the sculptures to the park and left them as they were, leaning on their sides The area came to be called (colloquially, not officially) the Park of Fallen Idols Eventually the collection contained over 700 Soviet-era monuments In the heady days of the new Russia, the City of Moscow commissioned artist Evgeny Chubarov to surround some of the examples of triumphant socialist realism with more contemporary sculptures When we entered the park we came upon Stalin, twenty feet high, striding purposefully into history Chubarov had surrounded the dictator with sculptures of his victims, including a massive cement cage with iron bars, filled with over 300 individualized ceramic heads In this way the Park of Fallen Idols offered a layered reading of Russian history vii viii PREFACE Not many states preserve the monuments of their discredited pasts Writing a decade after the Soviet tanks crushed the Prague Spring, in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Milan Kundera described the more typical fate of monuments: “Wandering the streets that not know their names are the ghosts of monuments torn down Torn down by the Czech Reformation, torn down by the Austrian Counter-Reformation, torn down by the Czechoslovak Republic, torn down by the Communists; even the statues of Stalin have been torn down” (Kundera, Laughter and Forgetting 1994, 217) It is just because successive governments undertake strenuous programs of public forgetting that citizens in every country should demand their own parks of fallen idols Every government should be required to maintain its own standing rebuke Its citizens should have access to symbols that assert, “However things are today, they were otherwise yesterday, and might be otherwise tomorrow.” Human rights symbols, like the fallen idols, arouse strong public feelings, which not always find a channel in the official exchanges of actors in the international human rights system The various monitoring bodies at the United Nations (UN) tend to marginalize affect, in an effort to make human rights justiciable Non-governmental organization (NGO) reports also relegate the strong emotions of victims of rights violations to sidebars, focusing their attention on testimony that has evidentiary value In the academic realm, too, there has been too little discussion of the emotional aspects of human rights discourse This is in part because the study of human rights has usually been undertaken by legal scholars and political scientists, whose interests lie elsewhere Trauma studies have explored the consequences of human rights abuse for individual victims’ psyches, but how societies, collectively, deal with their traumas is a question only beginning to be investigated in the scholarly literature on transitional justice There is still much work to be done Compared to human rights law, human rights culture is generally not as concerned about the juncture between facts and norms (Habermas 1998) as it is about the juncture between feelings and forms It is less about establishing an agreed code, and more about sharing individual experiences Emotionally resonant human rights art typically doesn’t change laws or regimes; rather, it seeks to change the prevailing ethos, by depicting what human rights mean for the individuals who are deprived of them, who witness the abuse, who perpetrate it, who mourn the victims, who intervene, who provide aid, or who transmit the stories By relating such experiences, human rights culture tries to shape a durable recollection for the wounded community PREFACE ix In the past decade, there has been a surge in the number of humanities scholars studying human rights literature and art Cultural sociologists have begun to look at the symbolic, meaning-making processes associated with human rights practices (e.g., Alexander 2007) Communications theorists have considered the effect on viewers of the framing of human rights issues in the media (e.g., Borer 2012) This book contributes to the humanistic study of human rights by offering an account of two of the major modes of human rights literature—lament, the literature of mourning, and laughter, the literature of resilience These literary modes exemplify art that reflects, and reflects on, a developing culture of universal civility Thanks to everyone at the Yale Center for Cultural Sociology, who helped me develop my ideas on global civil culture by inviting me to present a workshop in 2008 The Center’s journal and conferences have been a source of continuing inspiration and learning for me Thanks to Tristan Borer for encouraging me to develop my ideas and including an early version of Chap 1 in her collection as “Framing a Rights Ethos: Artistic Media and the Dream of a Culture without Borders,” in Borer, ed., Media, Mobilization, and Human Rights: Mediating Suffering (New York: Zed, 2012), 67–95 Thanks, too, to the editors of Human Rights Review, for publishing an early version of Chap 2—originally as “Lament as Transitional Justice,” Human Rights Review 15.3 (2014): 259–281—and permitting me to revise and reprint it here Colleagues at meetings of the Modern Language Association, the American Comparative Literature Association, and the International Studies Association have offered wonderful support and advice—in particular Alexandra Schultheis Moore, Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg, Greg Mullins, and Zoe Norridge I am also grateful to the colleagues in my international law track, whose work has often overlapped in interesting and unforeseeable ways with my culture track: Kurt Mills, Melissa Labonte, and David Jason Karp I am grateful to Georgia State University for the Provost’s Faculty Fellowship and professional leave that enabled me to complete this work Many of my colleagues have offered their good counsel and encouragement on various aspects of the project, especially Randy Malamud, LeeAnne Richardson, Sarah Higinbotham, and my fellow affiliates of GSU’s Center for Human Rights and Democracy My editor at Palgrave, Brigitte Shull, and the anonymous reviewers offered useful counsel My boys, Gideon and Rafael, are dedicated to soccer and to tikkun olam (the Jewish concept of repair of the world) They’re wise enough to know they don’t have to choose As Emma Goldman once put it, “If I can’t dance, it’s not my revolution.” WORKS CITED 117 Arendt, H 1978 The Jew as Pariah: Jewish Identity and Politics in the Modern Age Grove Press Bakhtin, M.  M 1984 Rabelais and His World Translated by Helene Iswolsky Bloomington: Indiana University Press Print —— 1981 “Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel.” In: Holquist M (ed.)
