Oxford Handbook of Law and Humanities

Simon Stern (Redaktør) ; Maksymilian Del Mar (Redaktør) ; Bernadette Meyler (Redaktør)

«This rewarding new volume offers both the casual visitor into law and humanities scholarship, as well as the dedicated scholar, fascinating opportunities to examine cutting edge research. It would be hard to come away from even a brief dip into the Handbook without becoming inspired to explore more of its many creative approaches and ideas further. Quite simply, this volume makes clear that Law and Humanities research is thriving [...] These well-established authors hail from a range of disciplines and often exhibit mastery of several disciplines simultaneously [... T]hese essays give the reader a sense of a shared sensibility—one that is open-minded and comparative, often historical, invariably careful and nuanced, and, in its most successful versions, productively synthetic, thoughtful, and creative.»

Lisa Siraganian, Johns Hopkins University, Law & Literature
How does materiality matter to legal scholarship? What can affect studies offer to legal scholars? What are the connections among visual studies, art history, and the knowledge and experience of law? What can the disciplines of book history, digital humanities, performance studies, disability studies, and post-colonial studies contribute to contemporary and historical understandings of law? These are only some of the important questions addressed in this wide-ranging
collection of law and humanities scholarship. Les mer

How does materiality matter to legal scholarship? What can affect studies offer to legal scholars? What are the connections among visual studies, art history, and the knowledge and experience of law? What can the disciplines of book history, digital humanities, performance studies, disability studies, and post-colonial studies contribute to contemporary and historical understandings of law? These are only some of the important questions addressed in this wide-ranging
collection of law and humanities scholarship.

Collecting 45 new essays by leading international scholars, The Oxford Handbook of Law and Humanities showcases the work of law and humanities across disciplines, addressing methods, concepts and themes, genres, and areas of the law. The essays explore under-researched domains such as comics, videos, police files, form contracts, and paratexts, and shed new light on traditional topics, such as free speech, intellectual property, international law, indigenous peoples, immigration,
evidence, and human rights. The Handbook provides an exciting new agenda for scholarship in law and humanities, and will be essential reading for anyone interested in the intersections of law and humanistic inquiry.
