Ny volym i Rättshistoriska studier

En ny volym i serien Rättshistoriska studier har utkommit: Legal history Reflecting the Past and the Present – Current Perspectives for the Future (red. Kjell Å Modéer).

Bokens innehåll beskrivs på följande sätt:

”In 2016 – 18 Lund University in Sweden celebrated its 350 years of existence. In 1666 the new university got its constitution, and in 1668 January 28 the university was inaugurated. At the Law Faculty this celebration was observed with several seminars and symposia. In November 2017 the legal historians at Lund arranged an international symposium dedicated to the doctores honoris causæ within the discipline of legal history at the Law faculty. The theme for this historiographical symposium was the impact of and interaction with the nine Nordic, European and American scholars who received their honorary degrees at the Lund Law Faculty from 1990 up to today. This volume is dedicated to them.

This volume gives examples of history of knowledge in action in a dynamic scholarly environment within legal history from the post-World War II up to today. The diversity of the research areas – their networks and theoretical and methodological discourses – exemplifies the “Historical turn” within the law, and demonstrate the development of the internationalized – and even globalized – discipline of legal history within in the late modernity during the last quarter century. Each of the nine honorary doctors gives in an article a presentation of their scholarly work, as well as a number of internationally established European scholars elaborate on their current perspectives on legal history – reflecting on the past and the future.”
