SCULPTING THE OTHER: INTERSECTIONS BETWEEN LAW, sick LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Convenors:

The purpose of this seminar is to investigate the relationship between law and the Other in English literature and culture. Law has developed historically around figures of denial, prohibition and interdiction; juridical language aims at clearing reality of all its contradictions, reconducing it to univocal categories, defined roles and behaviour. However, the repressed Other threatens inexorably to return and it threatens to disrupt the order and reason of the legal system. The seminar will take into consideration the above-described issues from different theoretical perspectives fostering interdisciplinary approaches in the following fields: law and literature, visual arts, film studies, performing arts, ecocriticism.
