The “Law and the Humanities” course takes place at the University of RomaTre Law Department since 2008, within the framework of the “Studying Law at RomaTre” Program. Its aim is to explore the fascinating, often problematical interactions between Law and Literature, Law and Philosophy, Law and History, Law and Anthropology, Law and Cinema, Law and Architecture, Law and Iconography and even Law and Music with the help of well known professors as well as PhD students coming from all over the world, who present each a different topic. They express themselves in the new “lingua franca”, English, which is particularly suitable for a “Law and the Humanities” course, as in Italy we have only recently “imported” this field of study – at least within the academia – from the United States.
This blog is thought to communicate with our students as well as with all people interested in the field of “Law and the Humanities”, as it gives us the opportunity to insert a wide spectrum of information. Here you can find details about the course program, the previous courses, the organizers’ profile and more. During the course, the blog is constantly updated in order to provide the students with information about the speakers’ c.v., the suggested readings, the final exam, etc. Furthermore, it is also a useful tool to continue online debates that started in class, so that the students can communicate online involving also a wider audience. More in general, the blog aims at providing useful information, including conferences and publications, about the world of the “Law-ands”.
