If you are interested in this special workshop, HERE IS THE PRESENTING FORM: The Idea of Justice in Literature!

Special Workshop: The Idea of Justice in Literature

The theme “The Idea of Justice in Literature” arises from the legal-academic movement “Law and Literature”. This newly developed field should aim at two major goals, first, to investigate the meaning of law in a social context by questioning how the characters appearing in literary works understand and behave themselves to the law (law in literature), and second, to find out a theoretical solution of the methodological question whether and to what extent the legal text can be interpreted objectively in comparison with the question how literary works should be interpreted (law as literature).

The subject of justice and injustice has been covered not only in treatises of law and philosophy, but also in many works of literature. On the one hand, poets and writers have been outraged at the social conditions of their time. On the other hand, some of them have also contributed fundamental reflections on the idea of justice itself. Our Special Workshop shall cover a wide range of theoretical issues related to justice in the literature.

It is the aim of this workshop to show how ideas and conceptions of justice (and related concepts) appear in literary works from different cultural backgrounds. A discussion around those works from an international/global perspective, would even let us arrive at a universally shared notion of that basic idea including emotions of right and wrong.
