Sharon Achinstein’s article, “A Common Humanity: From Poetry to Philosophy in Hugo Grotius,” which considers how Grotius’s theorizing of international law, specifically on captives and the enslaved, was shaped by his hitherto underexplored engagement with classical tragedy, is to be published in Renaissance Quarterly. The article is part of her ongoing work on early concepts of human rights, and will be forthcoming in 2023.
