The Research Project

The idea that each of us has a rich inner life made up of unmanifested thoughts, emotions, hopes and desires is a profoundly important socio-cultural narrative that has shaped how we understand ourselves and our social institutions. The Law and the Inner Self  (LAWINSEL) Project seeks to better understand the evolution and nature of this idea of the inner self by examining it through the prism of legal change from the Middle Ages through to the digital transformations of the 21st century. To illustrate legal change, we use developments in the field of personality rights as a case study.

 

We will track and interpret the significance of legal developments (as they pertain to the idea of the inner self) across the following six bodies of Jurisprudence:
