There is a conference coming up 24-25 April at Lund University in Sweden. If you are academically into norms from any perspective, you should probably check it out.
The name of the conference is The Normative Anatomy of Society. Relations Between Norms and Law in the 21st Century and it deals with “to promote an interdisciplinary debate about the role of norms in our society and their interaction with the law”, and states that “Identifying and questioning these different types of norms is not only a task for sociology of law, but is a field in which multiple disciplines interact. For this reason, the conference aims to promote scientific debate and communication across multiple disciplines.”
The research group on cybernorms chair one or more sessions and we are aiming for…
The aim of this session is to enhance knowledge and discussions around how Internet creates new norms in society. Social norms that spontaneously grow within different net cultures, but also norms in the shape of legislation aiming to regulate and control activities on the internet.
Of interest is that there also is a session that I’m arranging under the name Law, language and mind: The linguistic, metaphorical and conceptual approach on law and norms, where I follow an expanded view of the theoretical track on metaphors and norms from my dissertation from last year. The session focuses
“lingual, metaphorical, symbolic and other fundamental communicative tools role for how law and norms operate, function or are constructed”.
Hope to see you in Lund in April!
NOTE: Deadline for abstracts is on Friday, 10 February.
