“Cultural legal studies methodology. Wherefore art thou?”, Wollongong (Australia), Friday 21 September 2012

Lieu : University of Wollongongn UniCentre  building 11, UniVenue

This symposium considers the relationship between law and popular culture within a ‘cultural legal studies' movement. Work in this diverse and seemingly amorphous field is largely connected by a desire to explore the meaning and representation of law within a variety of cultural contexts, and as a body of scholarship it describes the site of a complex encounter between contemporary culture and law. This symposium seeks to further explore and explicate the world of cultural legal studies within the context of popular culture and with particular attention to methodology. To facilitate this, the symposium has two important objectives at its core: first, to seek to identify and frame what we mean by the term 'cultural legal studies';  and second to illuminate the methodologies and practices that shape studies of law and popular culture and law and humanities research that draws upon the practices of cultural legal studies.

As well as presentations on these topics by confirmed speakers, the symposium features an open session around the question: ‘What is Cultural Legal Studies'?

We will be running the first of our decolonization workshops for 2012-13 here at Senate House on Friday 16 November. The day will run from 10.30am to 7.30pm and will culminate with the launch of Dr Harshan

Kumarasingham's new book, A Political Legacy of the British Empire: Power and the Parliamentary System in Post-Colonial India and Sri Lanka (I.B. Tauris). As on previous occasions, we aim to have three panel discussions over the course of the day, followed by the launch. Each panel will consist of three papers lasting for 15-20 minutes.

We would be grateful for any offers of papers on some aspect of twentieth century decolonization, ideally by next Friday 24 August. We would also be grateful for any suggestions of established scholars or research students not on our lists who might be prepared to give papers.
