ANZLHS Conference: Receiving Laws/Giving Laws
By permission of the National Library of
10-12 December 2012
Faculty of Law, University of Technology of Sydney.
The theme of the conference orients us towards the movement, transmission and transformation of laws and their histories – across Empire, through time, in and between genres and disciplines. The receiving and giving of laws could be addressed in a broad range of ways. Some questions which might be raised by this topic include: How do laws and histories translocate? By what means (doctrinal, processual, cultural) are laws transmitted and received in new places? What transformations happen as a result of this movement? Whose histories, cultures and laws appear and disappear through these transformations? What kinds of interventions can bring about ways of transforming, perceiving and transmitting the law and its histories/cultures?
