Program available for the AYLH 2015 Tel Aviv / the Sixth Annual International Berg Conference

Dear friends and colleagues abroad,

The David Berg Institute for Law and History, with the support of the TAU Office of the Vice President, Cegla Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Entin Faculty of Humanities, and Yavetz Graduate School of Historical Studies will host the XXIst Annual Forum of Young Legal Historians / the 6th Annual International Berg Conference, scheduled to be held 1-3 March 2015 at the Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University.

The upcoming conference aims at a comprehensive discussion of law in transition. A wide variety of transitions of historical significance will be explored: political, economic, social, cultural, and more. “Law”— legal symbols, discourses, players, institutions, theories, and texts—has played a significant role in historical transitions, and legal historians have been crucial in exploring its multiple and contradictory effects. The stakes are not just historical, but current: these studies encourage transitions in the way law itself is conceived, theorized, and researched.
