by | 30 Apr 2024

Law, Literature and Humanities Association of Australasia Conference 2024

The University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law  |  香港大學法律學院

16-18 December (Conference)  |  15 December (PhD Day)

CALL FOR PAPERS – SUBMIT BY 15 JULY

This Conference is an invitation to collectively examine, critique, and, for the more daring, transform the imaginaries that constellate our grasp of reality and sustain the authority of law – from the racialised and gendered representations that give form and force to the colonial and patriarchal imaginaries of both North and South; to the configurations of sovereignty that are held together by the sociotechnical and technoscientific imaginaries of the Anthropocene; to the confined and confining figures of justice that populate the modern imaginaries of the state… With keynotes by Dr Daniela Gandorfer, Prof Peter Goodrich, and Dr Kojo Koram, and more special events TBA.

For further information on the Conference please visit our website.

To submit a paper, panel or creative session click here (deadline 15 July).

We encourage you to identify a stream for inclusion of your paper/panel/session. Streams provide the Conference sub-themes, helping to put papers in conversation with each other while creating ongoing conversations across sessions.
