The Centaur Jurisprudence Project Conference: The Legalization of Culture and the Enculturation of Law
This one-day conference will explore the potential of legal pluralism to account for the varied and dynamic roles of culture within legal discourse. Can legal pluralism create a richer model of legal knowledge, one that reflects plural cultural narratives, while still offering a normative foundation for formal legal processes? Or does it entail abandoning a distinctively legal discourse in favour of an assemblage of anthropological and legal knowledge or “centaur discipline”? In short, can legal pluralism bring culture within the domain of law?
