Résumé

This conference represents the final stage of the “European Doctorate in history, sociology, anthropology and philosophy of legal cultures in Europe”, a multilingual PhD programme financed by the European Commission and conceived to deepen the links between law and social sciences. The topic of the meeting, “Undoing law, framing contexts. Normativity across the disciplines”, aims to encourage a reflection on the concepts of law and context, bringing together scholars with different academic backgrounds but with a common interest in law. Many feel that a line has to be drawn between what is law and what it is not, between the text of law and its con-text. It is precisely this activity of distinguishing between the legal and the non-legal that we would like to examine more closely.

UNDOING LAW, FRAMING CONTEXTS. NORMATIVITY ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES

MARIE CURIE ACTIONS PROGRAMME EUROPEAN LEGAL CULTURES

This conference represents the final stage of the “European Doctorate in history, sociology, anthropology and philosophy of legal cultures in Europe”, a multilingual PhD programme financed by the European Commission and conceived to deepen the links between law and social sciences, in order to cross the boundaries that separate the different fields of study as well as the different countries. 

The topic of the meeting, “Undoing law, framing contexts. Normativity across the disciplines”, aims to encourage a reflection on the concepts of law and context, bringing together scholars with different academic backgrounds but with a common interest in law. 

Many feel that a line has to be drawn between what is law and what it is not, between the text of law and its con-text. It is precisely this activity of distinguishing between the legal and the non-legal that we would like to examine more closely. 

To that purpose, the conference will propose a two-fold strategy. It will first welcome specific “case studies”, presented with the following questions in mind: How does the notion of context come into play as an analytical tool? On the second hand, other contributions will approach the subject matter in more general terms, addressing questions such as: How can historians, philosophers and sociologists 

challenge representations of the law as pertaining to a purely formalistic normativity, devoid of any history, on the one hand, and depictions of the law as a pure course of events, indifferent to formal legal norms, on the other? 

Hopefully, but not necessarily, these two manners of approaching the question of law and its contexts will intersect at some point at the conference. By combining contributions from international scholars ranging from historians, philosophers, and lawyers to sociologists, it is our intention to offer an all-too-rare opportunity to catch a transversal glimpse of the law.
