European Law and Literature: Forever Young. The Nomad Concurs

Research output: Chapter/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

1 Citation (Scopus)


In this article various topics pertaining to the project of Europeanizing Law and Literature are explored on the view that from the start of the European interest in the field homage was paid almost exclusively to American models and topics, disregarding the European roots of the bonds between law and literature and perpetuating the canon(s) given by Anglo-American scholarship. The specificity of the (historical) development of law in what we now call Europe speaks for a thorough study of and a dialogue with American Law and Literature scholarship if only when it comes to importing features of other legal systems, to preclude the repetition of mistakes made.
