Seminar: Epistemologies of the South in sociology of law: post-abyssal approaches to legal pluralism
10, May, 2017

Abstract: Epistemologies of the South and its epistemological instruments, such as sociology of absences and emergencies, or founding metaphors such as the abyssal line, shed light on various issues of sociology of law regarding epistemological and methodological decolonisation and the broadening of the legal canon. Based on empirically founded studies, this seminar will reflect on the concept of legal pluralism and some of its main debates in light of the challenges involved in the construction of post-abyssal legal thinking.
