Images and Imagination in Theorizing about Law

This one-day workshop will examine the role of images in legal scholarship, both theoretically and historically. By bringing together legal and art history academics, it will establish a new network of scholars from a variety of disciplinesart, history, law, anthropologyinterested in the intersection of images and law. 
The last decade has seen much research into the intersection of the visual and the legal, yet the impact on the practice of contemporary legal scholarship has been limited, and there is little methodological reflection on the roles that images and imagery have played in scholarship about law.
This workshop will explore these issues with legal scholars, art historians, art theorists, visual epistemologists, anthropologists, and explore future avenues of research.
