Cultures of Law in Global Contexts
Fall 2013 (Current)
This initiative is an ongoing project pursuing interdisciplinary scholarship in the humanities and law. We take as our focus the frictions obtaining among multiplicities of justice, including issues of social order and state power, terrorism and ultranationalism, sustainability and economic development, and medical law and ethics. We explore the vexed history of applying international law principles developed in the West; the imposition of ideas of personhood through biomedical ethics and law; inter-state collaboration and conflict in defining terrorism; cultural approaches to financial regulation and monetary policies; and problems in law and economics arising from globalization.
