FRAME 33.2 – War, Literature, and Law

This next issue of FRAME, in collaboration with the OSL research group on Law, Literature and Society, will focus on the topic of “War, Literature and Law.” We have invited scholars to consider the dynamics between the fields of literature and law as they intersect in making sense of, or in their impact on, the experience of war. How does literature influence how we conceptualize legality and political conflict? How do legal contentions, political conflicts, and their entanglement condition the creation of literary texts? And how are these negotiations conditioning, or conditioned by, war? In the interest of developing an interdisciplinary debate, we have invited those specialized in legal studies and social sciences as well as those in the humanities to engage with literary texts and other art forms.

More details soon to be announced. Meanwhile, please browse our earlier issues.
