Critical legal geography conference

The First Critical Legal Geography Conference brings together transdisciplinary scholars to discuss the mutual constitution of space and law, broadly conceived. The conference will be an inclusive and dialogical meeting, with a relaxed discussion and exchange of ideas.

The Torino conference will be the first of a series of annual meetings on critical legal geography. The PhD Workshop “Explorations in Critical Legal Geographies” is also an integral part of the conference: the workshop brings together 15 PhD students with a variety of backgrounds (legal, geographical, political, sociological, anthropological, urban studies), whose doctoral thesis speaks to critical legal-geographical debates. The workshop offers participants a forum to contribute to their research development in a cross/transdisciplinary manner and opportunity to create synergies across the legal-geographical spectrum.
