>Paper proposals are invited for a "Law & Literature: Comparative Justice"
>panel at the American Comparative Literature Association 2003 meeting,
>April 4th-6th, 2003.
>As the field of Law & Literature becomes increasingly global in scope, this
>panel is concerned with the ways in which comparative judicial frames
>help consider the place of trans-national legal subjects. Papers are
>welcome which think through problems of punishment, rightsholding,
>representations of exported and imported democracies, legal violence,
>labor regulations, and land claims. Questions to be potentially addressed
>include: how are legal subjects constituted across or between borders?,
>how does the flow of capital impact positions of legal subjects?, and to
>what extent do border policies and narratives impact otherwise coherent
>or inconsistent legal polities?
>Papers considering the relationships between the disciplines of law &
>literature, either as they impact either each or as they work in tandem to
>affect national and international legal systems, are also most welcome.
>Papers might consider, for instance, the implications of the performance
>or representation of being punished, or punishing.
>Adhering to the conference theme of "crossing over", papers are invited
>from a range of historic periods and cultural productions.
>Please submit paper proposals by September 10th to Valerie Karno,
