This unit will explore the interconnections between law, cultural forms and practices and the creative process. Students will gain an understanding of law's regulation of the creation, transmission and consumption of cultural artefacts. They will also draw on a range of theoretical perspectives to investigate the myriad cultural representations of law and justice, for example in literature, screen, visual and interactive artistic forms, and to interpret their historical and contemporary meanings.
This unit may be co-taught with a PG version of the unit.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Critically analyse law's relationship to the creation, transmission and consumption of cultural artefacts;
2. Interpret legal and cultural texts as a critical and reflective reader;
3. Apply theoretical approaches to the relationship between law and culture to diverse legal and cultural texts;
4. Formulate a research topic in collaboration with the unit convener and undertake independent research and critical analysis; and
5. Demonstrate highly-developed skills in oral and written argument.
One 3 hour interactive workshop on campus per week.
