Edinburgh Critical Studies in Law, Literature and the Humanities

Series Editor(s): William P. MacNeil

With a global reach, this innovative series critically reimagines, through the most advanced conceptual frameworks and interpretive methods of contemporary theory available in the humanities and jurisprudence, the interdisciplinary relationship between legal and literary (or other aesthetic) texts.

Key features

  • Publishes the academic world’s most theoretically informed, textually sensitive and profoundly interdisciplinary scholarship in the field of law, literature and the humanities.
  • Publishes studies that prioritise the full range of popular, canonical and avant-garde works of the imagination – the literary, the artistic, the musical, the cinematic, the televisual, the digital – the texts of which will be read rigorously and critically as sites and sources of significant legal meaning in light of the most compelling trends and developments of cutting-edge cultural and legal theory.
  • Publishes work which jurisprudentially and jurisdictionally broadens the notion of law in literature and the humanities to capture the rich diversity of postmodern legality, including not only private law but public law, not only civil law but common law, as well as international law, human rights, religious law, intellectual property and customary law – to name a few.
  • Publishes studies of law, literature and the humanities that draw as much upon and from the non-anglophone, civilian tradition as its anglophonic common law heritage; and which attends to, and provides a publication outlet for innovative scholarship that spans both East and West, as well as both North and South, thereby rendering this series truly ‘global’.
