Event Details

The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC) and Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences (IHSS)

This event is part of the 2017-18 Lecture Series on the Methodology of Comparative Disciplines, featuring speakers across a wide range of the Humanities and Law. What is the best way for us to proceed when comparing legal systems? What is comparison about? Which comparative method(s) should be used? Comparative lawyers have, and still are, struggling with the answer to those questions.

However, there are other comparative disciplines in which comparison is at the core of the research process. How do they proceed? Which problems and obstacles did they encounter? How did they solve them, in case they succeeded in doing so? Did they develop a true method of comparison? Which criteria for comparison did they use? What could comparative lawyers learn from all this?

This series of lectures aims to make a number of those points explicit and to create an interdisciplinary forum for discussing them.The lectures are offered in four seminars. Each seminar will consist of two lectures on two different disciplines, commented on by a comparative lawyer and discussed with the audience.

This series is a sequel of the workshop organised at QMUL on 8 March 2017, in which Comparative Law, Comparative Politics and Comparative Cultural Studies were already discussed in this perspective. In the 2017-18 lectures the focus will be on (comparative) religion studies and anthropology (11 October 2017), linguistics and literature (29 November 2017), philosophy and history (17 January 2018), and sociology and economics (14 March 2018).
