Forthcoming Issue: Vol 5, No 2 (fall 2018)

The special issue on the New Literary Analysis of Law will feature an array of articles that engage with legal and literary forms, methods, dispositions, and media. Over the past two decades, it has become clear that the frequently invoked choice between "law in literature" and "law as literature" no longer accounts for the work in this field, as scholars have asked how modes of legal explanation inform structures of thought in literature, and how the incitements and provocations of literary texts, in turn, influence legal approaches to problem-solving. This issue will highlight scholarship that considers the various ways in which legal and literary ideas and techniques intersect and build upon each other.
