The Centre for Law and Culture, St. Mary’s University Twickenham, London, presents ‘Anarchy’, The Law and Culture Conference, to be held on September 7–8, 2017 at the University of St. Mary’s, United Kingdom. 


The Centre for Law and Culture is an interdisciplinary hub for research at the intersections of law, justice, and the humanities, engaging legal study that spans topics and themes from across critical and cultural legal studies and thereby incubating and promoting the crossing and challenging of legal boundaries. The Law and Culture Conference 2017 aims to stimulate a topical discussion that crosses disciplinary, geographic, academic, and conceptual boundaries on the significance of anarchy in relation to law, culture and theory. Some indicative themes of the conference are about Anarchies of the State, Anarchies of the Subject, Anarchies of Thought.
