Workshop 2: Police and Person

Posted at 2:29 pm under Uncategorized

Our second Workshop will be held by Jeannine DeLombard and Bryan Wagner on the topic of Police and Person.

From Black Lives Matter, vaccine mandates, and immigration to environmental initiatives, reproductive rights, and corporate power, the terms “police” and “person” figure prominently in current legal-cultural debates. Yet, the tendency to define these terms narrowly –police as law enforcement and the person as a human being –often obscures the larger stakes of these and other controversies. With a session devoted to each term, this workshop seeks to enrich our understanding of the complex meanings that have attached to “police” and “person” in Western law and culture.We look forward to an open and wide-ranging discussion informed by, but not tethered to, our common readings.
