TitelYale: Law and Fiction (Conference Session 2)
BeschreibungCall for Papers: Yale: Law and Fiction (Conference Session 2)

After three years of fruitful collaboration, the Yale WHCWG “Fictionality: Law. Literature. Science. Interdisciplinary Approaches’ invites proposals (25 minute presentation) for its concluding conference on May 20/21, 2015 at Yale University, New Haven, CT. A selection of the conference’s papers will also be edited and published.

The keynote address will be given by Prof. Peter Brooks (Princeton/Georgetown Law/Yale).

The Conference will consist of two whole-day sessions: one very specific on the role of Fictional Discourse in Legal Theory and Practice, and a second more open panel on the intersections and relations of Law and Fiction in general (a more traditional law and literature session) that is open to inquiries of all sorts. Each session will also have a session keynote, the speakers and respondents (Yale Law School Faculty/Yale Faculty) are still unconfirmed but will be determined shortly.

This Call for Paper is only for the SECOND SESSION (‘LAW AND FICTION”) - a separate Call for Papers will be posted for Session 1 (“Fictional Discourse in Legal Theory and Practice”).

We welcome a great variety of approaches on the intersection of law and fiction.

We especially would welcome:

- legal narrative techniques and form in fiction

- fiction as legal experiment: fictional stories that could serve as legal thought experiments

- law in literature: what do we learn about the law in novels and drama (its nature, its status, its relation to truth, its value, its discontents)

- fiction (novels, drama, etc.) as a forum/means to discuss the questions and discontents of the law (e.g. Franz Kafka’s “The Trial”, “Before the Law”, “The judgement”, “The penal Colony”)

- fictional quality of law, trials, etc. as a topic of storytelling (in novels, drama, etc.)

- "novelists and poets" as the principal teachers of law (John Wigmore, Benjamin Cardozo; Robert Weisberg)

Please send a short abstract of maximum 500 words (single spaced) and short academic resume (not more than 5 lines) that need to be both put on one SINGE PAGE, preferably as PDF, to The Email Subject needs to be: ‘Session 2 CFP’ followed by your lastname and the title of your proposal (for automatic filtering purposes).

The deadline is March 30, due to the tight timeframe however, early submissions might have a higher chance to get accepted.
