Political Idiots: On the Strange Affinity Between Philology and Law, with Jesús Velasco
450 Jane Stanford Way, Building 260, Stanford, CA 94305
Join us for a talk by Jesús Velasco.
Contemporary constitutional originalism is closely linked to philological methods and principles. But how? Can we historicize this connection between the production of Law and the development of Philology as a central discipline? Velasco will think about that with the Middle Ages, exploring some genealogical trends of the affinity between philology and law.
Jesús Rodríguez-Velasco is the Augustus R. Street Professor of Spanish & Portuguese and Comparative Literature at Yale University, and the Chair of the Department of Spanish & Portuguese.
