CfA: In Search of the “Political”: Law’s (Il)legibility between Violence and Care

02 August 2021

Working Group for Advanced Ph.D. Students and Early-Career Researchers

Deadline was 13 September 2021

The working group is initiated by Bucerius Fellows Revital Madar and Ola Galal.

The discussions will focus on narratives, processes, structures, and institutions through which law is produced, appropriated, and contested throughout its different life stages of drafting, interpretation, and implementation. Within this framework, the organizers seek to draw attention to the entanglement of violence and care in modern law and explore the extent to which the global judicialization of politics reproduces the very inequalities and injustices the law is imagined and promises to address. Following nine online meetings, held between October 2021-June 2022, a workshop will be set to meet in-person and discuss members' work in progress that originated from discussions held throughout the year. Short versions of these works will be then published as a series on the TRAFO-blog of the Forum Transregionale Studien.
