Export as iCalendar

Valérie Hayaert is interested in judicial symbolism in Europe over the long term (from the medieval era to the contemporary period). Her first book Mens emblematica et humanisme juridique (THR, Droz, 2008) focused on the symbolic culture of sixteenth-century humanist lawyers in Europe. From 2014 to 2018, she served as Review Editor for the journal Emblematica. An interdisciplinary Journal for Emblem Studies (AMS Press, New York and Droz, Geneva). She co-authored with magistrate Antoine Garapon Allégories de Justice: la grand'chambre du Parlement Flandre à Douai, and contributed to two exhibitions on images of justice in Belgium: The Art of Law, Bruges (2017) and Call for Justice, Mechelen (2018). Associate researcher at the Institut des Hautes Etudes sur la Justice (Paris), she is now pursuing her research in the United Kingdom, at the Centre for Criminal Law of the University of Warwick. Her next book, to be published by Edinburgh University Press, is entitled Lady Justice: the Anatomy of an Allegory.

At this talk she will present on her ongoing judicial visualities (the case of the new Renzo Piano Paris Courthouse and the ongoing trial of the 13th of November terrorist attacks) .
