Society of Legal Scholars

Symposium: Television drama, law and national identity

  • Friday 6th September 2019
  • University of Westminster

CALL FOR PAPERS: Deadline 1 February 2019.

Television drama plays a seminal role in the cultural life of nations, and the way in which it depicts national identities merits scholarly exploration.  In this regard national identity’s relationship with law as its crystallisation is particularly worthy of academic attention and lends itself to interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives.  Police, crime, justice and dystopian dramas frequently place law and social attitudes to law centre-stage in the delineation of national identity.

Proposals for 20-minute papers are  invited for this symposium to be held in the University of Westminster’s historic Regent Street building just metres away from BBC headquarters.
