With this in mind, the interdisciplinary workshop series “New Directions in the Theory & History of International Law” aims to create a space where emerging and senior scholars of different traditions can meet and rethink on the past, present, and future of the theory and history of the discipline. For this purpose, the Geneva Graduate Institute will host a series of two-day academic workshops to promote productive conversations between different disciplinary sensibilities and perspectives along three core issues over the next three years.
These three cross-cutting themes are:
- Political Economy, History, and International Law - held on June 2-3, 2022with Professor Susan Marks, London School of Economics
- Beauty and Power: Aesthetics, History, and International Law - October 19-20, 2023with Professor Kate Miles, University of Cambridge
- Space and Scale in International Legal History - Spring 2024 (tentative date TBD)with Professor Luis Eslava, University of Kent
Scholars who would like to present a paper at the second workshop on “Beauty and Power: Aesthetics, History, & International Law” are invited to submit a title and abstract (250─500 words) to email@example.com before November 25, 2022 (23:59 Geneva Time - CEST). A decision on acceptance of the abstract will be communicated by late October. We expect to host these workshops in person, but hybrid participation might be considered depending on the overall sanitary situation and the guidelines issued by the Geneva Graduate Institute. We are keen on exploring options for a collective publication effort after the workshop. As such, we encourage potential participants to bear this in mind as they prepare their abstracts.
