International development can be understood as a particular way of seeing the world that is both a pedagogical and a political project.   It frames the ‘undeveloped’ state as a subject available to be ‘seen’ and ‘known’ in ways that have important implications for governance.  Framing, in this context, also directs attention towards the visual economy of development policy and practice, and to the ways in which the creation and circulation of images have long played role in the development project.  This workshop invites participants to consider the regulatory implications of specific practices of ‘seeing’ and ‘knowing’ the world in the development context.

This one-day workshop invites scholars of law and development to engage with the visual aspects of their scholarly work in a preliminary way.  We will begin the day with a roundtable discussion of several key texts that engage with the themes of the workshop. We will then convene several panels of preliminary paper presentations engaging with the workshop theme.  The day will conclude with a final roundtable discussion reflecting on the implications of the ‘visual turn’ for the construction of the field and its potential impacts on the pedagogy and practice of law teachers and scholars.

Please Note: SEATING IS LIMITED. Attendees will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. A light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided to attendees.
