Presenters

In the last two decades there has been an ever-increasing volume of academic work by legal and social historians, literary scholars, philosophers, social scientists, criminologists and legal practitioners that investigates the relation between law and the emotions, both in historical and contemporary contexts. This workshop brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to consider intersections between emotions and law (using a broad concept of ‘law’), and to discuss possible future cross-disciplinary collaborations in this area, within and beyond the Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education at The University of Western Australia (UWA).
