Maastricht University has organised a Roundtable. The Roundtable will bring together multiple approaches to the place of law in popular culture. Further, it 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.
