Leveraging approaches and insights from cultural studies, The Cultural Lives of Law carves out a space in cultural analysis for law and its effects. This series focuses on the production, interpretation, and consumption of legal meanings. It takes up the challenges posed as boundaries collapse between and within cultures, and the circulation of legal meanings becomes more fluid. The series also attends to the ways law’s power in cultural production is renewed and resisted. Among other topics and themes, books in in this series are concerned with law and popular culture, legal consciousness, literary analysis of law, celebrated trials, the regulation of artistic and cultural life, and historical and ethnographic treatments of law and national identity.
