“The Framing of a Text: A Decision?” Seminar with Anne Orford on 11 March 2014

For a couple of days in March, Professor Anne Orford (Faculty of Law, Melbourne U) will be visiting Lund, Anne has agreed to give a seminar on 11 March at 14.15-16.00 hrs, primarily intended junior and early-career researchers (from doctoral candidates to post-docs and assistant professors). The theme of the seminar will be

The Framing of a Text: A Decision?

 Writing a text is tackling the consequences of earlier framing choices: living with them, repressing their existence, modifying them, rejecting them and moving the frame. The final text does not necessarily explain how its framing changed over time. As framing issues are so closely tethered to the material we work with, it is not always that we think about them as part of our method. The seminar is dedicated to reflecting on how we take – or do not take – decisions on framing, drawing on our own work.

Please let me know at Gregor.Noll (at) jur.lu.se if you would be interested in participating in this seminar. Participation presupposes a simple and brief preparation: being ready to share one current example of a significant framing challenge in your writing. No written papers, no power points. The seminar is geared towards the craft of writing and will take the form of a roundtable conversation with a limited number of participants.
