This workshop will take place on July 7-8 2014 (Convenor: Prof. D. Manderson). It will bring together leading scholars on issues like:
- What are the implications of the assertion that “the representation of power reveals the power of representation”?
- Is law iconophilic or iconoclastic or both?
- In what way do visual representations of law throughout the pre-modern, modern and contemporary periods both illuminate and challenge our understanding of the changing relationship between law, aesthetics, and power?
- How does the aesthetics and technology of the digital screen transform the representation of legal concepts such as the rule of law, sovereignty, security, or human rights?
