We are pleased to announce the next in our annual series of Critical Times workshops.

The theme of this year’s programme is Movement(s), and you can find out more via the link. The programme has been designed with post-graduate students and early career researchers in mind, and features a series of tailor-made workshops, lectures, and seminars from leading scholars around the world, including:

  • Radha D’Souza (What’s Wrong with Rights? Social Movements, Law and Liberal Imaginations)
  • Debjani Ganguly (This Thing Called World: The Contemporary Novel in Global Form)
  • Desmond Manderson (Danse Macabre: Temporalities of Law in the Visual Arts)
  • Fiona Macmillan (Intellectual and Cultural Property: Between Market and Community)

Movement(s) will appeal particularly to those researching in interdisciplinary approaches to law and critical theory. Organised by a global consortium of partner institutions, the workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn and think together, and to meet like-minded students and scholars working in this unique research space, from different disciplines and from different places around the world.

The full programme of activities will be published soon. If you would like to receive the programme as soon as it is released, please sign up via email to
