Interdisciplinary Legal Studies Research Cluster Launch

An event marking the launch of a research cluster showcasing current research work related to law at the intersection of a range of disciplines, including cultural studies, English, philosophy, geography, and art.

The study of law in recent decades has focused on the law’s relations with other areas of understanding and knowledge, with leading examples including socio-legal studies, law and humanities, and critical legal studies. Significant arms of the global legal academy are now concerned not only with doctrine and principle, but with the interrelationships between law in terms of doctrinal or institutional phenomena and its wider constitutions and appearances throughout society, culture, and the material world.

Building upon this expansive energy, the Interdisciplinary Legal Studies research cluster adopts a similarly open-ended view of legality, bringing together scholars and other stakeholders working at the multiple intersections between or across legal and other disciplinary settings.

Through this connectivity—both interpersonal and interdisciplinary—the cluster seeks to examine and gain rich and varied insights into complex contemporary questions of law, authority, and justice.

Speakers will include:

Prof Anne Wagner, Lille University

Dr Chloë Kennedy, University of Edinburgh

Dr Kimberley Brayson, University of Sussex

Dr Dominic Smith, University of Dundee

Dr Megan O’Neill, University of Dundee

Dr Golnar Nabizadeh, University of Dundee
