Law and Arts in Crime Settings

The 19th International Roundtable for the Semiotics of Law (IRSL 2018)

23rd – 25th May, 2018. Hosted by Örebro University.

This roundtable aims at exploring, analysing, debating the very close semiotic connections between real and fictitious societies, and exploring the mimicking between human and non-human people in order to express the social order in which individual liberties, rights and duties are major concerns. This roundtable will focus on how to narrate real or fictitious national crimes, war crimes, crimes against humanity, manslaughter, etc. We will not only focus on legal analyses and literature but also on how artists, political cartoonists and/or official court artists sketch court settings, crimes, and alleged offenders.

We invite contributors to reflect on how these ideas have been examined over the years. Papers which examine the way artists, storytellers, writers, novelists, singers, movie producers have provoked public discourse to confront Law and Arts in Crime Settings are particularly welcome. A special attention will be paid on how storytellers narrate a crime to a very young public and raise its awareness.

The 19th International Roundtable for the Semiotics of Law invites further discussion into these and related questions and welcomes a plurality of approaches, including those of legal studies, philosophy, social science, linguistics, history, cultural studies, and the humanities. Abstracts of 300 words (max.) can be submitted to Laura Ervo (Organizer) ( and Anne Wagner ( Selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of International Journal for the Semiotics of Law. (Springer: or edited volume.

The registration is now open. Plz, find more information on the conference webpage:
