Law, Society and Popular Culture

Two seminars in one day at the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture

19 November 2010

The 25 November is a busy day for the Centre of Law Society and Popular Culture. First at 4pm in Room 2.14 at Little Titchfield Street we are delighted to welcome PhD candidate at the University of Gothenburg and LLM Entertainment Law graduate Merima Bruncevic who will be giving a seminar entitled ‘The Cultural Commons and Copyright’.All welcome but please RSVP Danilo Mandic, [email protected]

Following this, at 6.00 on the same day in Fyvie Hall, Guy Osborn is giving his professorial lecture, A Design for Life? Mixing research and teaching in law and popular culture, which will (hopefully) present a contemporary analysis of the intersection between law and popular culture, and explore the importance of integrating life interests into both teaching and research. The lecture will be in part autobiographical, and in part something of a social history, and will attempt to further develop the link that exists between teaching and research. It will seek to illustrate, in particular, the opportunities and possibilities of academic life. Again all welcome but please RSVP Anja Mclean, [email protected]
