Speakers:

This conference addresses important changes in the representation of crime, litigation and justice in Britain over the period 1660-1850, and particularly the constitution of public opinion about justice by ‘performances’ which touched the emotions. The principal objective is to encourage a second wave of historical studies relating to the ‘theatre’ of justice in this period; one that builds upon earlier work by transcending the boundary between courtrooms and the public gaze and recognizing the importance of representation and performance.
