Law and Literature in the Global South

Active Affiliate Group

Law and Literature in the Global South broadens the horizons of the Law and Humanities critical paradigm. Rather than conversations that center legal and cultural practices from the Global North, which are then brought to bear on “objects of study” from the South, this workshop engages with practitioners whose expertise constellates around global concerns and addresses theorizing subjects in the South. At its heart, Law and Literature in the Global South is an interdisciplinary group that adopts an expansive approach to the understanding of literature (i.e., novels and poems as well as cinema, visual culture, etc.). In this way, the group will open spaces for Law and Humanities debates at Stanford and proffer a shared platform to develop the research agendas of various faculty and graduate students related to legal cultures and cognate literatures from different locales (mainly China, the Middle East, and South America).

Events will be shared here and tagged DLCL, Comparative Literature, and ILAC. Learn more about the SGS Global Workshops Program.
