Dr Jessie Hohmann (QMUL) and Dr Daniel Joyce (University of New South Wales) join the seminar for a conversation inspired by their recent edited volume, International Law’s Objects (OUP 2018).

This volume is animated by the intuition that international law’s rich existence in the world can be illuminated by its ‘objects’: the objects on which it acts, those which it defines, charges with meaning, or even creates. The materiality of international law also has important implications for historians of international law.

In this conversation, open to all, Jessie and Dan will reflect on the way in which attention to international law’s objects and their lives can broaden the scope of international legal historiography, and offer fresh avenues for the contestation of dominant and Eurocentric narratives.

Those attending may find it helpful to read the editors’ introductory chapters, available on request from
