About the Law, History and Visual Culture Seminar Series

The seminars encourage and facilitate the growing interest in the interdisciplinary field of law, history and visual culture. As such, these reflections break away from the traditional view of law as an image-less, a text-based discourse. By incorporating scholarship from a wide range of disciplines, it offers an innovative and lively forum for the discussion of innovative and path-breaking legal and historical research on visual culture. The papers in this seminar series cover a wide range of themes, motifs and legal issues. Together, it showcases new research and comments from around 35 speakers, who are based in a variety of jurisdictions around the world.
