CfP Art, Letters, & Law: Resistance through creative mediums Law Society Association Conference Deadline for Abstracts 20 November 2019

There is an art and law panel being proposed next year at the LSA, Law & Society Association, scheduled for May 28-31 in Denver, Colorado, United States.
The deadline for submissions is 20 November and there is a need for 2-3 more papers.

This proposed panel explores human expressions of the arts as a resistance to oppression and part of the arsenal for legal advocacy. Rather than focusing on the first amendment protections of speech or the intellectual property nature of artwork and ideas, this panel considers the production of arts and letters as a form of legal advocacy, resistance, and dialogue. Important questions such as the value and nature of expressions born of trauma and suffering during human rights tragedies and the power of joyful music and sounds as counter speech are just a few examples of the topics to be discussed and experienced during this panel.
