Student Invited to Turkey to Speak
on Human Rights
September 26, 2003 :: No. 51b
Ontario resident Harold Morales, a senior
philosophy major at Cal State Fullerton, traveled last month to
Istanbul as part of the inaugural student session at the 21st World
Congress of Philosophy.
Morales had submitted a paper on human rights, and
his entry was one of 14 selected from students around the world.
The honor earned him an expense-paid trip to the August gathering
and an invitation to present his paper, “Human Rights.”
In addition to speaking at the conference, Morales
attended various presentations of philosophers representing 85 countries.
“The experience has given me a more defined sense of direction
in my life,” said Morales. “It has encouraged me to
academically pursue the subject of human rights in graduate school.”
