Law as performance

Sarat, Lawrence Douglas, Martha Merrill Umphrey (eds.)

Amherst: University
of Massachusetts Press, 2018, ix, 250 pp. : ill.

ISBN: 9781625343543

In considering law through the lens of
performance studies, the contributors in this volume emphasize the embodied,
affective, and reiterative qualities that move law off the printed page and
into the thick world of lived experience. They consider the blurring of lines
between performance and the enactment of law, the transformative exchanges
between the law and its many and varied stagings, and the impact or resonance of performativity in situations
where innocence and guilt may be determined.
