About this lecture:
The interdisciplinary study of law and literature is not new. But it remains, in the opinion of some, controversial. The ‘strategies’ of law and literature are contestable and contested. These strategies, and these contestations, will provide the focus for the first part of this lecture. It will be argued that one of the virtues of ‘law and literature’ scholarship is an inherent facility for nurturing further inter-disciplinary work. In this spirit of evolving inter-disciplinarity, the second part of this lecture will concentrate on the closer relation of law, literature and history. It will proceed by means of a particular study of one relatively familiar genre of English literature, the woman’s novel of the mid-nineteenth century.
