This could range from legal language, the influence of the Magna Carta, legal procedure and literary production, outlaws, disputatio, law as a separate language, canon law and religious texts, Lateran IV, royal law and court production, law and historiography, law and hagiography, legal documents, contracts, Jews and the law, law and visual iconography.

Proposals should be sent to Dorothy Kim (dokim@vassar.edu) by September 25th.
