Lecture series 'Reconsidering the Socio-Legal Gaze'
The Van Vollenhoven Institute is organising a year-long public lecture series entitled 'Reconsidering the Socio-Legal Gaze'. The lecture series aims to spark critical debates about the visions of justice and positions of power that inform Law and Society scholarship at Leiden and beyond.
The series will start this semester with three lectures that will reflect on the birth of socio-legal scholarship in the context of Dutch colonial administration ('Dutch Colonial Foundations').
- 14 October 2021, Dr. Martine van Ittersum (15.30-17.00)
'Van Vollenhoven and Grotius: Soulmates of Empire'
The lectures of the second semester of the academic year will focus on 'Future Horizons' of socio-legal scholarship in the context of three key values that drive contemporary scholarship: decolonization, diversity, and development.
The lecture series is organised by the Van Vollenhoven Institute Diversity and Inclusion Committee, the first of its kind at Leiden Law School.
