For most, the right place to look for law is in constitutions, statutes, and judicial opinions. This interdisciplinary collection looks for law in the “wrong places”—sites and spaces in which no formal law appears—geographic regions beyond the law’s reach, everyday practices ungoverned by law, works of art that have escaped law’s constraints. Beyond showing law to be determined by or determinative of cultural phenomena, the contributors show how law is itself interwoven with language, text, image, and culture.
