Issue 2 - November 2018

Latest

Welcome to the 2nd Edition of SLJ Research

Our first issue, published in late 2017, celebrated a year of research success; growing publication outputs, the launch of a keynote lecture in legal theory and critique, visiting judge and artist in residence programs, and a monthly research seminar series. As 2018 draws to a close, these key benchmarks continue to flourish, while new programs and events unroll.

This year, I can report on a busy list of research activities that are testament to a rich research culture in the SLJ, one that plays to our enduring strengths: a scholarly tradition that is critical, theoretical, cultural, progressive, and deeply imbued with an ethos of social and environmental justice. Film screenings, book readings, keynote conference papers, monthly research seminars, quality publication outputs, grants success, traditional and non-traditional research impacts, symposia, In Conversation events, Thursday Night Live provocations at the Quad – it has been a full year.

2019 Law, Literature and the Humanities Association of Australasia’s conference

School of Law and Justice
Southern Cross University, Gold Coast Campus
2-4 December 2019

The conference will explore the intersection of legality, temporality and eschatology, the normatively uncertain and yet inherently creative space originated by the conflicting encounter between the orderly desire of law and the entropic tendency of apocalyptic narratives, with both forces cast against the backdrop of the ever-­deferred notion of time itself.

More information will be available as the conference website is developed.

Southern Cross University School of Law and Justice is proud to convene and organise, together with the Law, Literature and the Humanities Association of Australasia (LLHAA) and the Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand (LSAANZ), the 2019 LLHAA conference and the 2019 LSAANZ conference, respectively titled JurisApocalypse Now! Law in End Times, and Survive. Thrive. Die. Law in End Times.


The two conferences, although distinct and separate, are nonetheless connected by a shared overarching theme, and are articulated around a shared Postgraduate Day. Scholars are invited, in a profoundly interdisciplinary manner, to participate in either or both conferences.

2019 Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand conference

School of Law and Justice
Southern Cross University, Gold Coast Campus
5-7 December 2019

Social upheaval, political uncertainty, the end of history, or climate collapse: increasingly, such narratives seem to justify the state of exception in a plethora of contexts, slowly eroding the idea that social, political, and environmental stability can ever be achieved through the rule of law.

The conference invites socio-legal scholars to re-imagine the question of law in the face of the ‘end times’.
