A Workshop on Law and the Humanities at the University of Warwick

The University of Warwick is sponsoring a Workshop on Law and Humanities on October 14, 2015. The workshop will consider how the various ‘law and…’ methodologies (law and literature, film, theatre studies, etc.) can help us think through the scenes of unrest, the staging of protest, and the writing of injustice and discontent.

It aims to address the following questions: How might Law and Humanities enable us to make sense of a setting of popular dissensus, of widespread economic, political and environmental chaos and inequity? What does it mean to choose the disciplinary apparatus of Law and Humanities in the quintessential political setting – the moment of popular dissensus and disagreement? What are the possibilities of an aesthetic engagement with law, protest and dissent? Lunch will be provided. The workshop is free but pre-registration is required.

Here is a list of confirmed participants.
