Event description

Description

This symposium is the first event of the AHRC Legal Materiality Network, offering an overview and mapping some of the positions, approaches and tensions that the notion of ‘legal materiality’ has raised in contemporary legal scholarship. Law presents a particularly strong challenge to such object- and matter-based orientations because it is bound up with systems of meaning and is mediated by texts. Rather than taking physical objects as analogous materials through which law can be studied, participants seek to untangle and question assumptions of legality as inherent and self-evident in matter. Reflecting the aim of the network to bring together scholars across disciplinary divides who are working in and on law as an object of study into conversation, this symposium incorporates diverse viewpoints on law’s various material techniques and artefacts.
