We’re happy to announce that the 5th Osnabrück Summer Institute for the Cultural Study of the Law will be held from August 4 – 16 2014 at the University of Osnabrück. The 5th International Graduate Summer Institute for the Cultural Study of the Law aims to further encourage and promote the interdisciplinary study and research of the interrelations between law and culture, based on the idea that the extended cultural study of the law will encourage profitable scholarly exchange and dialogue between legal studies and the humanities. The Summer Institute was founded in 2009 and since then has hosted more than 120 students from over 80 countries.
The Osnabrück Summer Institute brings together leading scholars in the field of cultural legal studies with international graduate students from the humanities, legal studies, the social and political sciences, art, and history in order to create a high profile opportunity for the comparative study of law and culture and their complex relation. The Institute provides an effective combination of workshops, lectures, panels and presentations, both by faculty members from the participating institutions and a number of guest lecturers, specifically selected as leading experts in their respective fields. The Institute will offer placements for 20-30 international graduate students (PhD and post-doc level) for a 10-12 day period. A limited number of scholarships and travel grants are available.
Most recent Summer Institute faculty included: Rosemary Coombe (York/Toronto), Fiona Macmillan (Birkbeck), Helle Porsdam (U Copenhagen), Joseph Slaughter (Columbia), and Kay Schaffer (U Adelaide).
We are inviting qualified students from all over the world whose work is concerned with the interdependence and interaction between law and culture to join a unique experience of scholarly collaboration and exchange during an intensive program with workshops, public lectures, panel discussions, and excursions.
The call for applications will open in February 2014. You can download the announcement poster here.
