Law and Popular Culture
The Roundtable will bring together multiple approaches to the place of law in popular culture. Further, the Roundtable will show the manner in which popular culture
affects law and the understanding by actors in society. Previous experiences at UM include a MaRBLe Project directed by Jan Smits, having gathered papers by students
on alternative perceptions of justice. The Roundtable aims to trigger further interest on this area of study, alerting on the value that non-conventional approaches to law
offer to the better understanding of social sciences.
Room number C0.311B, Faculty of Law, Bouillonstraat 1-3, 6211 LH Maastricht.
Funds for the realization of the event were provided by the Science Committee and the Department of Foundations and Methods of Law of the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University.
