Landscape, Law and Spatial Justice Seminar Series

UCD Sutherland School of Law

We are delighted to announce our monthly seminar series on Landscape, Law and Spatial Justice, taking place at the UCD Sutherland School of Law. Building on the work of geographers such as Kenneth Olwig and Michael Jones, we aim to explore, confront, and expand the role of law in landscape scholarship through discussions on inter alia human rights, the rights of nature, property, cultural heritage, commons, custom and community, transitional justice, and language and representation. Seminars are open to postgraduate students, researchers, and staff from across UCD.
