Law Text Culture

Volume 25 (2021) Performing theatrical jurisprudence


      I have been associated with Law Text Culture (LTC), as a member of the editorial board and for a while as Managing Editor, since the first volume appeared under the guidance and inspiration of the late Penny Pether in 1994. Since then LTC has carved out a distinctive place for itself in the Australian academic landscape, and on the global stage. It was second only to the Yale Journal of Law & Humanities to recognize the distinct interests and approach of the field known as law and the humanities. We have pioneered scholarly writing at the intersection of philosophy, theory, history, literature and culture. We have also pioneered the use of creative media such as photography, poetry and comics to address issues of law and justice. The journal has always been committed to the importance of the relationship between form and content; aesthetics, ethics, and politics.
