Dialogues on Otherness in Comparative Legal History

Comparative Legal History: Dialogues on Otherness in Comparative Legal History, 15 June 2021 – 17:00-18:00hs (CEST)

The journal Comparative Legal History is an official academic forum of the European Society for Comparative Legal History. It was first published in 2013 and aims to offer a space for the development of comparative legal history. Based in Europe, it welcomes contributions that explore law in different times and jurisdictions from across the globe. Submissions are currently welcome and are being assessed on a rolling basis. 

The journal will host a one-hour public session to discuss on how to deal with otherness in comparative legal history. Editors (past and present) will present exploratory points and all attendees will be invited to join in a general discussion. 

Otherness is a multidimensional topic. It can relate to, inter alia, methods, disciplines, literature, culture, systems, and time periods. Otherness is needed when crossing time and space, it is needed when seeking for answers within and beyond specific environments. Exposure to otherness can only be beneficial for the disciplinary growth of comparative legal history.

The event is free and open to the public, and it will take place via Zoom.  Registration is required by sending an email to clhdialogues@gmail.com
