Call for Submissions, COTL — "Human Rights"
This is a reminder that I'll be hosting Carnival of the Liberals #63 here at Vagabond Scholar on April 23rd. I'm happy to read all submissions, but I'd like to concentrate on "Human Rights" posts, which can cover torture, due process, Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib or any of a number of related subjects. Given the recent release of the 2003 Yoo torture memo, Philippe Sands' new book Torture Team, the upcoming Guantanamo trials, the stances of our presidential candidates, and situations around the world, there's plenty of angles to take on material that unfortunately needs far more attention than it's receiving.
The blogcarnival.com form is the best way to submit.
I'm asking for a Monday, 4/21 submission deadline. Again, posts related in some way to human rights are preferred, but I'm happy to read all submissions — which are currently thin in numbers. Thanks!
