Call for Papers: Law and Culture Conference

The 2017 edition of the Law and Culture Conference will be held at the The Centre for Law and Culture of St. Mary’s University in London, UK from September 7th to the 8th. Submissions are due by May 14th, 2017, and should be sent to Professor Thomas Giddens at: thomas.giddens@stmarys.ac.uk . As an individual author, you can submit a 250 word abstract and 50 word biography, and if you are organizing a panel, submissions should include a 150 word abstract for the panel itself, alongside 250 word abstracts for each of the intended papers. This year’s major theme is Anarchy, and the conference description includes the following:

What does it mean to break the world? What is legitimate resistance to state power? When does authority spill over into repression? What happens when a sovereign loses control? What is an anarchic act? Is anarchic thought possible? What is anarchy’s relationship to chaos and disorder? What is its relationship to order and regulation? How are such concepts represented—if they can be—in legal, social, political, moral, and critical philosophies?

Can anarchy be a duty?
