Symposium: The Incorporation Problem in Interdisciplinary Legal Research
To prepare a special issue for Erasmus Law Review, entitled The Incorporation Problem in Interdisciplinary Legal Research, an authors’ symposium will be held.
Date: 17 October 2014, from 9.30 to 17.00 hours
Location: Hotel New York, Rotterdam
Admission is free, but available place is limited
The central question of the symposium is: How can we translate and incorporate the various non-legal disciplines and their findings into the language of legal doctrine? The aim of the symposium is to discuss the draft papers for the special issue edited by Wibren van der Burg and Sanne Taekema, and to have a fruitful dialogue about the arguments made. The issue will contain three types of contributions, theoretical discussions of the question, discussion of specific legal interdisciplines, and case studies.
Participating authors are:
- Matyas Bodig, University of Aberdeen
- Elaine Mak, ESL
- Terry Hutchinson, Queensland University of Technology
- Theunis Roux, University of New South Wales
- Harm Kloosterhuis, ESL
- Annie de Roo, ESL
- Andria Naudé Fourie, ESL
- Anne Lise Kjaer, Copenhagen University
The workshop will be small, with 20-30 participants, and have the following format: all participants read the papers in advance. The authors do not present their own paper; instead, a discussant presents his understanding of the argument and feedback. Ample time will be reserved for plenary discussion of each paper. Space is limited, so please let us know soon if you wish to attend.
