CORPUS JURIS is a book series for scholarship that explores the relevance of the humanities (history, literary criticism, anthropology, philosophy, religious studies, and political theory) to the study of politics and law, focusing on historical as well as contemporary issues.

SERIES EDITOR: Elizabeth S. Anker, Cornell University

Legal theorists have long debated the extent to which the study of law requires dialogue with other disciplines. Is law closed and self-contained? Or must its history as well as contemporary practice be examined through the lenses of other fields and perspectives? Corpus Juris publishes scholarship that explores the intersections between law, politics, and the humanities—including history, literary criticism, anthropology, philosophy, religious studies, and political theory.

Our goal is to multiply the interdisciplinary junctures and conversations that shape the study of law. We aim to publish cutting-edge scholarship that not only tackles new or under-analyzed issues in politics and law but also develops innovative methods to undertake those inquiries. Corpus Juris seeks to reflect the excitement and creativity that characterizes emerging interdisciplinary research in law, politics, and the humanities.

Corpus Juris books are published by Cornell University Press, with the support of Cornell Law School, Cornell University College of Arts and Sciences, and the Society for the Humanities at Cornell.

The Corpus Juris logo is based on a bookplate designed by Rockwell Kent for the Greenland Press, 1941. Our books are designed by Rick Rawlins/Work.
