Call for Papers: Legal Imaginaries — a Law, Literature and Humanities Association of Australasia Conference 2024

Legal Imaginaries
A Law, Literature and Humanities
Association of Australasia Conference 2024

15 - 18 Dec 2024

The University of Hong Kong

(Submit by 15 July 2024)

This Conference is an invitation to collectively examine, critique, and, for the more daring, transform the imaginaries that constellate our grasp of reality and sustain the authority of law – from the racialised and gendered representations that give form and force to the colonial and patriarchal imaginaries of both North and South; to the configurations of sovereignty that are held together by the sociotechnical and technoscientific imaginaries of the Anthropocene; to the confined and confining figures of justice that populate the modern imaginaries of the state… With keynotes by Dr Daniela Gandorfer, Prof Peter Goodrich and Dr Kojo Koram, with more special events TBA.
