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.

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’.
