Fall 2021
Tuesday, 12:05 to 2:05 pm
Furman Hall, Room 330

LAW-LW.10650.001

2 Credits

The colloquium examines ways law and culture, construed broadly, interact and shape one another.  Each class will focus on a particular methodology or approach to the study of this interdisciplinary field. Topics include constitutive theory, Marxist readings, legal realism, the role of common sense in the law, and law-and-literature/film. These will be analyzed through readings which integrate insights from anthropology, cultural studies, jurisprudence, literary analysis, and critical studies, among others. Later sessions may also include discussions with faculty and visiting scholars on research which relates to the course.
