Interrogation Techniques: Law, Texts, Culture
Simon Fraser University English Graduate Conference, May 29-30, 2009

This interdisciplinary conference will interrogate the role of the law in
the production, content, dissemination, and critical reception of texts.
The relationship between legal and other discourses affects how cultures

literature, and society intersect in diverse forms, from the Ten
Commandments to the political role of the novel in Victorian England, from
vigilante justice in revenge tragedies to the establishment of the Creative
Commons online.
