Call for Papers: Law and Arts in Crime Settings

Örebro University hosts Law and Arts in Crime Settings, the 19th International Roundtable for the Semiotics of Law (IRSL 2018) May 23–25, 2018. Selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of International Journal for the Semiotics of Law or an edited volume.

This roundtable aims at exploring, analyzing, debating the very close semiotic connections between real and fictitious societies, and exploring the mimicking between human and non-human people in order to express the social order in which individual liberties, rights and duties are major concerns. This roundtable will focus on how to narrate real or fictitious national crimes, war crimes, crimes against humanity, manslaughter, etc. We will not only focus on legal analyses and literature but also on how artists, political cartoonists and/or official court artists sketch court settings, crimes, and alleged offenders.

Abstracts are due December 1, 2017.
