Conference: Crisis of Humanitarianism / Humanitarianism in Crisis

On April 25-26, 2014, the Human Rights Program at the University of Chicago will host a conference on "Crisis of Humanitarianism / Humanitarianism in Crisis." The program is here. Here's the idea:
This conference presented by the Human Rights Program will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars working on compassion, mobilization, and power in humanitarian thought and practice in a variety of geographical spaces. Over the course of two days, we will interrogate the genealogies of the present moment and reflect upon the future of a new politics of humanitarianism.
