This two-day conference seeks to explore the ‘meaning-making’ functions of law and examine the role played by imperial law in the fashioning of cultural identities.

Conceived within the broader thematic of colonial law and cultural change, this conference is the final academic event planned within the AHRC funded research network – ‘Subjects of law: rightful selves and the legal process in imperial Britain and the British Empire.’

While the focus is on the contours and processes of cultural and legal change within the British Empire, comparative insights from other imperial/colonial contexts would be very warmly welcomed.

Confirmed speakers include

  • Professor Eliga Gould, University of New Hampshire
  • Professor Javed Majeed, King’s College, London
  • Professor Lakshmi Subramanian, CSSSC, Kolkata
