International Conference "When Law is Silent - and Literature Prosecutes"
This workshop focuses on historical and contemporary case studies in which literature articulated the need for justice when law remained silent. We seek to foster communication and cooperation among scholars working on related topics in the interdisciplinary context of Law and Literature. The main goal of our workshop is to explore new venues for dialogue across national traditions and areas of expertise, beyond a mere discussion of “law as literature” or “law in literature.”
The detailed progam can be downloaded below. The conference was initiated by Prof. Susanne Zepp-Zwimer and Prof. Klaus Hoffmann-Holland and is held in cooperation with HR-UP. It is supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
There will be a public keynote lecture by Prof. James Cavallaro about "Forced Disappearances in the Americas - The Ayotzinapa Case in Context" on the 20th of November.
