Law and the Visual

Desmond Manderson (Australian National University), ed., Law and the Visual: Representations, Technologies, and Critique (University of Toronto Press 2018).

“ . . .  legal theorists, art historians, and critics come together to present new work examining the intersection between legal and visual discourses. Proceeding chronologically, the volume offers leading analyses of the juncture between legal and visual culture as witnessed from the fifteenth to the twenty-first centuries.”   
– book jacket 

"Desmond Manderson’s Law and the Visual marks a significant development in visual studies of law. Manderson moves readers across centuries, cultural contexts, and visual media. There is nothing like this book!"
