Panel Discussion

How do the arts expose, dramatize, and indict child labor - and what impact do these actions have beyond the arts?

How does the power of “fictionalized” depictions of child labor in the arts differ from the impact of the “raw facts” upon which lawyers and scholars tend to focus their attention?

A reception in Eck Commons will follow the panel discussion
