Event description
A Sacred Covenant? Historic, Legal and Cultural Perspectives on the Development of Marital Law.

About this Event

This Journal of Legal History and Northumbria University funded one-day virtual conference seeks to explore the changing legal and cultural definitions of marriage across geographical locations or jurisdiction from the period c.1450 to present day, paying particular attention to the changing perspectives on age, same-sex marriage, polygamy, divorce, and remarriage. This conference will create an exciting space where historical, literary, medical, artistic, and cultural perspectives can be considered alongside real-world experiences, allowing the discovery and exploration of parallels and contrasts across borders and time.

This event features a keynote speaker: The Rt Hon. the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE, alongside notable academics and practitioners such as: Prof. Rebecca Probert, Prof. Diane Urquhart, Penelope Russell, Dr Frances Burton, Dr Andy Hayward, and Dr Leigh Wetherall-Dickson.
