In this episode, Dr. Evelin Lindner and Dr. Linda Hartling will draw our attention to their work on Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies (HumanDHS), a global transdisciplinary fellowship of concerned academics, practitioners, activists, artists, and others, who collaborate in a spirit of mutual support to understand the complex dynamics of dignity and humiliation. Their goal is to stimulate systemic change - globally and locally - to open space for mutual respect and esteem to take root and grow, thus ending humiliating practices and breaking cycles of humiliation while advancing dignity throughout the world.
