Law, Justice and Society at Wolfson

Law, Justice and Society at Wolfson is a collaboration between the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society (FLJS) and Wolfson College, which works to promote an understanding of the role of law in society.

We are committed to disseminating our work to a wide audience in academia and beyond. Our reports, working papers, and policy briefs provide digestible yet authoritative perspectives on issues confronting today's professionals. Over one hundred publications are freely available to download from our website. Browse Publications

The Korrigan Consort Presents: Hunger & Judith Triumphs
Saturday 27 April - 7:30pm to Sunday 28 April - 9:30pm

The Korrigan Consort is thrilled to present a spring double-bill, featuring Joanna Ward’s Hunger and Antonio Vivaldi’s Judith Triumphs.

Two tales, two women, two troubled souls. One, an artist struggling to form her identity as a creative, a woman, and a mother. One, a noblewoman with the weight of a nation on her shoulders, rebelling against the expectation of women to sacrifice. Both struggle under the thumb of patriarchs and patriarchy, with stories reaching across time.

How should we conceptualise madness as scholars? This interdisciplinary colloquium features various speakers, and aims to give researchers who are interested in this subject an opportunity to meet one another, hear about each other’s work, and to discuss the challenges of writing about experiences and perceptions of madness and mental illness.
