Let Love Rule: an argument for an ethics of affective legal subjectivity

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

An attempt to re-think legal subjectivity away from rights based legal 'personality' towards an idea of affective legal 'character', incorporating insights as to the nature of reflexive late modernity from critical legal studies and autopoietic legal studies. Four sites of social subjectivity are identified and examined using case study material and qualitative evaluation; sexual subjectivity, working subjectivity, new technological subjectivity (genetics) and imaginative constitutional subjectivity (Northern Irish Agreement). Strands of ideas are worked together to formulate a call for a reformation of legal subjectivity more in tune with with the patterns of contemporary society.
