While IFLS’s roundtable tomorrow on the Lori Douglas inquiry has been cancelled because of the ongoing labour disruption on the York campus, there is this panel, that I’m on, as past of the Law and the Curated Body Conference put on by a team including my colleague Prof. Faisal Bhabha
from the conference website:
The First Conference of Its Kind.
Law and the Curated Body is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on socio-legal, curatorial, historical and cultural research that considers the intersection of bodily performance (whether legal-professional, theatrical, quotidian and aesthetic) with normative and epistemological frameworks (including doctrine, policy, spirituality, and ethics).
New understandings of curating in the visual and performing arts draw on a long history of acknowledging the curatorial endeavour as a catalyst for personal and social transformation. Similarly, the centrality of the relational encounter as a site for social transformation through law is increasingly prevalent in theoretical understandings of human rights, legal ethics, criminal justice, legal pluralism and alternative dispute resolution.
Law and the Curated Body will feature innovative and interdisciplinary presentations and workshops exploring these interconnected themes from theoretical, experiential, doctrinal and practice-based perspectives.
