Law Text Culture is a trans-continental peer reviewed journal. It publishes critical thinking and creative writing across a range of genres – from artwork and fiction to the traditional scholarly essay. Law Text Culture incites a dialogue crossing disciplines, exciting, in each, fresh perspectives along three axes of inquiry: * Politics: engaging the relationship of force and resistance; * Aesthetics: eliciting the relationship of judgment and expression; and Ethics: exploring the relationship of self and other. Law Text Culture promotes the exploration of these aspects of these themes through special issues.
