Literature & Law Conference: Literature, Labor and the Law – New York, NY

John Jay College of Criminal Justice

The John Jay College of Criminal Justice holds its Law and Literature Conference October 30-November 1, 2015.

The responsibility of the state described by Plato, the contracts written by Shakespeare’s Shylock, or the works delving into the plight of modern laborers all explore the intersections between Literature and Law. This conference will explore the way that literary renderings of labor concerns, broadly defined, have responded to or have influenced the law.
