Cultural legal studies and law's popular cultures

Chapter


Abstract


  • Something unfinished resides in the phrase cultural legal studies, a slipperiness conveyed by the overlapping parts of speech, the adjectives that could be nouns, the nouns that could be verbs. Structural incongruities like this can be invigorating, countenancing heterogeneous possibilities and postures, but this interpretative slipperiness is its bane as well as its blessing.
