Reading group "Law and Textuality"

  • Date: May 7, 2019
  • Time: 14:30 - 16:00
  • Speaker: Dr. Mauricio Gonzalez Rozo
  • Organisation: Manuela Bragagnolo (MPIeR)
  • Location: MPIeR
  • Room: Z02

The concepts of « textuality », « intertextuality » and « hypertextuality » are increasingly debated in current legal historiography. Applying categories largely derived from literary theory to legal historical sources in order to analyse law as a textual phenomenon can indubitably provide productive approaches for legal historical research, even though several methodological and theoretical questions are still open.

In the reading group, we will read and comment on some ´classic´ texts on textuality. In dialogue with the philosopher Dr. Mauricio Gonzalez Rozo, we will try to understand the context in which these concepts have been theorized, and assess and debate the meaning and relevance of textuality in legal history.
