Cultural Legal Studies (6039LAW)

Cultural Legal Studies: Critical Approaches to Law and Popular Culture introduces students to a range of critical theory tools and reading practices that enhance their understanding of foundational jurisprudential concepts such as law, rights, sovereignty, power, authority, and justice. It does so by engaging in close and sustained readings of traditional legal texts such as cases and government reports alongside novels, graphic novels, short stories, paintings, films, and television shows. Lectures demonstrate techniques in close reading drawn from literary and visual studies, and students practice these techniques on a range of cultural legal texts in online discussion. This activity will form the basis for the student's own 'jurisprudential reading' of a chosen text or texts. Lectures are videoconferenced between Gold Coast and Nathan. This is an approved Honours-level elective (AQF level 7). It is open to undergraduate students who have completed or are completing Theories of Law. Co-requisite: 5195LAW Theories of Law OR 3010LAW Jurisprudence.
