  • Liberalism and Rights of Nature: A Comparative Legal and Historical
           Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Seth Epstein, Marianne Dahlén, Victoria Enkvist, Elin Boyer
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      A growing number of jurisdictions have recently granted rights to nature. This article places the potential disruptions generated by this legal development in historical, comparative perspective. The questions that scholars are asking about rights of nature (RoN) are similar to many of those asked by historians and legal scholars about human rightsholders. These questions arise from some of the tensions within liberalism. Placing these tensions in comparative context offers a framework with which to interpret RoN developments. Doing so demonstrates, first, the capacity of the existing liberal order to incorporate challenges into already functioning structures and, second, that such efforts to manage the claims of new subjects of rights nonetheless can transform relations. In our conclusion, we argue that a comparative perspective may allay the tendency to exoticise rights of nature by examining the extent to which their development in sometime contentious and sometimes complementary relationship with democratic institutions is reflected in historical efforts to define and make meaningful the rights of human rightsholders.

  • Feeling Accountable: Affect and Embodied Ethics in Times of Crisis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Justine Esta Ellis
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      Calls for strengthening the U.S.’s federal ethics systems have proliferated in the popular media, among good governance watchdog groups, and beyond. Framed as an ongoing crisis, the situation has prompted democracy reformers to advocate for more stringent accountability mechanisms, oversight, regulations, and laws. Drawing from new directions in scholarship, this article uses approaches from affect theory to reconsider assumptions about reason, language, and the rule of law within government ethics reform. In so doing, I suggest that perspectives from affect theory expose overlooked areas within current accountability mechanisms and subsequent failures of enforcement, arguing that recent theoretical interventions help us rethink good governance practices by calling into question the ratio-centric, agential framing of government accountability. By mobilizing new theories of crisis and emotion, this article considers how administrative bodies—made up of corporeal bodies—might feel accountable. Building on the work of scholars who link the roles of habits and environments to embodied actions, this article proposes that examining the affective composition of an ethics crisis has wider implications for theorizing moments of institutional reckoning.

  • “A Night of Errors”: Chaos, Comedy, and Comparative Law at the
           Inns of Court

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jessica Apolloni
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      Festivities at the Gray’s Inn Revels of 1594–1595, as narrated in the Gesta Grayorum, included the first recorded performance of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. Revels at the Inns were intricate affairs parodying government rule, often involving a fictional coronation, parliament, plays, and mock trials. Recent studies in law and literature have detailed how revels created artificial city states that raised numerous questions about legal regulation and self-governance. On December 28, 1594, the Gesta Grayorum claims Shakespeare’s play created a “Night of Errors” that led to a lengthy mock trial the next day. In this article, I analyze the commerce of legal ideas occurring between Shakespeare’s play, its source in Plautus’s Menaechmi, and the ensuing commentary from the mock trial in order to demonstrate that key generic elements of Roman comedy became central to legal training at the Inns. I illustrate this intertextual development of comedy to reveal its power in representing and critiquing how law is performed in communities.

  • Aesthetic Distance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jeremy Isard
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      There is an unnamed crisis of aesthetic immediacy afoot in the American criminal justice system. Defendants are seen too quickly. Or rather, they are recognized too quickly. They are recognized spatially, at the defense table, surrounded by lawyers and court marshals, playing the protagonists in the court performance. For most observers, this staging and its familiarity bring about a series of untold assumptions—assumptions that, when viewed nakedly, erode the presumption of innocence. While implicit biases and prejudices similarly short-circuit judicial proceedings—procedure and proceduralism itself—nefariously permit implicit narratives to outpace evidence. Tools to interrupt the aesthetics of transgression and its aftermath will serve judicial accuracy without substantial efficiency tradeoffs. While the bifurcation of the guilt and sentencing in American courts laudably partitions the culpability inquiry from the question of deserved punishment—the former, the question of wrongdoing, can never be truly divorced from history, neither personal nor social. Nor should it be. The Anglo-American insistence on a socially ahistorical criminal trial comes at a high cost: real and textured history—the foreground, leadup, and intimate histories of what occurred is kept out, while the more depersonalized histories that undergird daily life, narrative tropes, and mythologies of crime are permitted to play an outsized role. There is no place, as it stands, for simultaneity in truth or a multiplicity of character. This article thinks of ways to render collective transgression and the complexity of truth legally cognizable and to afford individual defendants full subject status as, I argue, the Sixth Amendment demands. It turns to a source famed for disrupting perception and the study of how and why perception is to be unsettled: Russian Formalism.

  • Perpetual Enemy, Intimate Alien: Somerset v. Stewart’s Effect on the
           Legal and Political Status of the English Jews

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Casey Smedberg
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      By redefining villeinage as applicable only to those of English heritage, Somerset v. Stewart inadvertently expanded Englishness to encompass English Jews, who had been associated with villeinage both in the medieval and early modern periods. The sudden cessation of legal and political references to Jewish villeinage post-Somerset constitutes a reframing of Jewish history, with the goal of reestablishing the boundary between Englishness and Jewishness. To fully understand Somerset’s contribution to the making of Englishness, we must, therefore, look beyond the case’s impact on racial slavery and consider the role the case played in legally and politically redefining English Jews as fundamentally non-English.

  • Succession’s Lessons for the UK’s Dual Class Shares Debate: Beyond the
           Founder as the Benign Genius

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jonathan Hardman
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      UK law is currently debating whether companies whose founders have enhanced voting rights, known as a ‘dual class share’ structure, should be allowed to be listed on the premium list of the London Stock Exchange. This article posits that those arguing for dual class shares argue, ultimately, that founders may be benign geniuses who should be freed from market forces. It argues that the television show Succession illustrates that it is not inevitable that a founder be so: the Roy family’s misdeeds echo traditional corporate law warnings about the dangers of managerial excess. Law needs to regulate the Roys as well as any benign genius.

  • Shakespeare’s Staged Trials

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: John Leubsdorf
      Abstract: Law, Culture and the Humanities, Ahead of Print.
      The trials in Shakespeare’s plays are strange. There are no lawyers or professional judges, there may be no witnesses, and the adjudicator often imposes unusual sanctions such as banishment. Most strikingly, almost all the trials are fakes, manipulated by a character toward a predestined result. Two obvious explanations—that trials in Shakespeare’s day were like that, and that trials in the contemporary drama were like that—turn out to be largely incorrect. It is more persuasive to trace the strange features of Shakespeare’s trials to the various dramatic functions they fulfill, yet even this approach does not explain everything.
