Law and Memory: Legal History of the 20th Centuryonline course
As any other social system, Law has also memory: it refers, through laws, legal decisions or doctrine, to the recent past. This is especially important in the case of mass atrocities, wars and dictatorships of Europe’s 20th Century. This course is aimed at analyzing the influences between Law, society and memory. It studies the legal construction of dictatorships and states of exception. It also explains how our contemporary legal systems have dealt with the past. The perspective is global and interdisciplinary.
