The Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities is an organization of scholars engaged in interdisciplinary, humanistically oriented legal scholarship. The Association brings together a wide range of people engaged in scholarship on legal history, legal theory and jurisprudence, law and cultural studies, law and literature, law and the performing arts, and legal hermeneutics. We want to encourage dialogue across and among these fields about issues of interpretation, identity, and values, about authority, obligation, and justice, and about law's place in culture.
The Tenth Annual Conference will take place at Georgetown Law School, Washington, D.C. on March 23-24th 2007.
We will be accepting papers, panel proposals and volunteers for chairs and discussants from July 1st 2006 until October 15th 2006.
