New publication: Special issue Kritische Justiz 3 /2013

November 19, 2013

The passing of time opens spaces for new research on the theories, practices and politics of law under National Socialism. The first studies from the 1960s and 1970s aimed to educate and raise awareness of the past. More recent approaches historicize this period. What can critical reflections on law, National Socialism, and memory look like in the early 21st century? The special issue features contributions that showcase recent approaches in historical legal scholarship. Temporal distance, these contributions suggest, does not have to lead to routinized remembrance. It can also enable new productive perspectives on perpetrators, complex continuities, and memory.

Contributions by Helia-Verena Daubach, Lena Foljanty, Christina Kleiser, Devin Pendas, Hannes Püschel and Christiane Wilke.
