Laurie M. Wood, UW Law School's Law & Society Postdoctoral Fellow, presents "The Legal Geography of France's Early Modern Empire," 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Lubar Commons (Room 7200).
Legal scholars typically explore questions about geography in terms of jurisdiction: the territory governed by a particular legal regime. But in what other ways can thinking spatially advance legal studies? How might we use geography to work through questions about themes like legality, judicial politics, and legal consciousness? This workshop uses France's early modern empire as a case study for thinking about legal geography, the relationship between space and legality.
The event is part of the Legal Studies Workshop Series, sponsored by the Institute for Legal Studies.
Please email Laurie Wood if you are interested in attending.
