Sociolegal image-text on the fly

When something I see triggers a sociolegal thought I usually take a photo and tweet it. The tweet text reminds me of the thought that was triggered by the image. All of which goes to my increasing confidence in the idea that images and text are best served together. And hot? So I shall continue to collect… Continue reading Sociolegal image-text on the fly

Sociolegal model-making 4: Discussion

Sociolegal model making 4: Discussion from Amanda Perry-Kessaris on Vimeo. This is the fourth in a series of experiments (see the first, second, third, fifth and sixth) investigating how modelling can be used in econosociolegal research processes. 'Law and governance are intimately entangled with time.' So began the call for papers for an international conference on 'New' legal temporalities: discipline and resistance across domains… Continue reading Sociolegal model-making 4: Discussion

Categorising visual materials

This experiment follows on from an attempt to visualise sociolegal concepts using found images. Both experiments are part of my research (funded by the Socio-legal Studies Association) into the use of graphic design by civil society actors in relation to econolegal aspects of the current talks between Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots regarding possible reunification of the island. My… Continue reading Categorising visual materials

https://vimeo.com/174647035 This is the first in a series of experiments (see the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth) investigating how modelling can be used in econosociolegal research processes. Drop in session Kent Law School (KLS) acquired a LEGO set in 2016. The purchase was provoked by my attendance at a LEGO-based workshop on 'Exploring stuckness' run by Graham Barton who is part of the… Continue reading Sociolegal model making 1: Decision

Externalise, materialise, confront: on the making of sociolegal worry beads Part 2

A field trip to Cyprus got me thinking about worry beads. I began wondering how they might be used by Cypriots to think about their emotions and worries associated with the past, present and future of Cyprus reunification talks. But realised that I ought to begin with what I know best: the worries of sociolegal… Continue reading Externalise, materialise, confront: on the making of sociolegal worry beads Part 2

Visualising sociolegal concepts using found images

This experiment was part of my research (supported by a Socio Legal Studies Association small grant) into the use of design-based methods by civil society actors in relation to econolegal aspects of the proposed reunification of Cyprus. The aim was to try to generate visual representations for some of the key concepts that I came across during my… Continue reading Visualising sociolegal concepts using found images

Externalise, materialise, confront: on the making of sociolegal worry beads Part 1

My current research (supported by an SLSA small grant) focuses on the econolegal implications of the possible reunification of Cyprus, through the lens of graphic design. Norman (2005) Emotional design: why we love (or hate) everyday things got me thinking about worries as a focal point for sociolegal research. A poignant series of images in Lasn/Adbusters (2012) Meme wars: the creative destruction… Continue reading Externalise, materialise, confront: on the making of sociolegal worry beads Part 1
