Critical Legal Conference 2021

University of Dundee, 2-4 September

I lived principally in the country as a girl, and passed a considerable time in Scotland. I made occasional visits to the more picturesque parts; but my habitual residence was on the blank and dreary northern shores of the Tay, near Dundee. Blank and dreary on retrospection I call them; they were not so to me then. They were the eyry of freedom, and the pleasant region where unheeded I could commune with the creatures of my fancy.

(Mary Shelley, preface to the 1831 edition of Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus

The call for papers for the Critical Legal Conference 2021 is now open, and will close on 30 June 2021.

The CLC this year will be hosted as a blended (physical/virtual) event, with online-only as a contingency, by the University of Dundee. Its theme will be ‘Frankenlaw’, inspired by connections between Dundee and Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. Full details of the theme and the call for individual papers can be found via the website link above.
