15/09/2014 Arrets sur images. Les représentations du juge au cinema - CALL FOR PAPERS
Depuis peu, les juristes mais aussi les théoriciens et philosophes du droit ont commencé à s'intéresser au cinéma et aux représentations du droit et de la justice qu'il véhicule. Ce mouvement est certes plus développé dans le monde anglo-saxon, au sein duquel on le désigne souvent au moyen de l'appellation " Law & Films ", mais des initiatives allant dans cette direction ont également pris place, ces dernières années, dans les cultures de droit continental et en particulier dans le monde francophone. Cependant, la figure du ' juge ' au cinéma n'a pas encore été vraiment étudiée de façon directe et spécifique, alors qu'elle est incontournable au sein de notre pensée et de notre expérience du droit et de la justice, et qu'elle a en outre régulièrement retenu l'attention des cinéastes. ... Les propositions d'exposés devront parvenir aux organisateurs pour le 15 septembre 2014.

31/07/2014 Visual Narratives - Cultural Identities. A trans- and interdisciplinary conference at the University of Hamburg. CALL FOR PAPERS
Increasingly, cultural studies focus on stories and the narration of stories as important catalysts for the constitution, confirmation, and modification of cultural identities. Not only in times of what seems like floods of images but since images are made a large part of these stories and narratives is communicated by visual media. Constantly it can be observed that elaborate iconographic programs are developed to establish specific meanings more or less successfully as essential elements of cultural identities. To analyse and interpret visual media from such a perspective it is, on the one hand, necessary to develop categories to describe their narrative aspect.On the other hand methods have to be explored which facilitate cultural interpretations of visual narratives and which may decode the deeper meanings transmitted also from times and epochs long gone. Finally, it has to be considered how narrative contents participate in the construction of cultural identities. Other details can be seen in the attached file. The deadline is at 31 July 2014.
16/06/2014 TCRS 2/2014 'Visiocracy'. CALL FOR PAPERS
The contemporary law school curriculum contains virtually no training in the critical study of law and the visual. In today's global web optimized environment, law's visual domain and theatrical presence impacts all aspects of the media and the political and extends even into the private realm. What lawyers and scholars more generally fail to appreciate is that the image has dogmatic roots and juridical tendrils. Focusing on Goodrich's paper Visiocracy and his history of legal emblems, the current number of the review Theory and Critics of Social Regulation aims to situate the problem of the visual within legal theory and legal practice. After the cultural epochs of legal epistemology and legal hermeneutics, configuring a legal aesthetics is becoming an interesting task and a fascinating challenge for current legal critical theory.Other details can be seen in the attached call.The deadline is at June 16, 2014.
