  2. Danse Macabre: Temporalities of Law in the Visual Arts.Desmond Manderson - 2019 - Cambridge University Press.
    The visual arts offer refreshing and novel resources through which to understand the representation, power, ideology and critique of law. This vibrantly interdisciplinary book brings the burgeoning field to a new maturity through extended close readings of major works by artists from Pieter Bruegel and Gustav Klimt to Gordon Bennett and Rafael Cauduro. At each point, the author puts these works of art into a complex dance with legal and social history, and with recent developments in legal and art theory. (...)

    Klimt’s Jurisprudence—Sovereign Violence and the Rule of Law.Desmond Manderson - 2015 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 35 (3):515-542.
    This essay develops an extended analysis of Gustav Klimt’s lost masterpiece, Jurisprudence, bringing it into a richer dialogue with its social and legal context. Jurisprudence, a suffering naked man surrounded by eyes, eerily captures the relationship between ‘sovereignty and bare life’ that Agamben argues was re-forged and refined across the 20th century. Klimt’s image might perhaps be regarded as the very first, and perhaps still the most comprehensive, representation of this profoundly important figure of legal modernity. But Klimt does not (...)

    The Metastases of Myth: Legal Images as Transitional Phenomena.Desmond Manderson - 2015 - Law and Critique 26 (3):207-223.
    In times of transition and transformation, legal images metastasize. This idea can be usefully related both to Winnicott’s theory of transitional objects and Barthes’ theory of myth. But each tell only part of the full story. Barthes fails to fully account for the stabilizing effect of the reassuring signifier; Winnicott fails to fully account for the ideological adaptability—and implications—of the shifting signified. The legal image unites the iterability of the signifier and the polysemy of the signified, harnessing the affective intensity (...)

    Shakespeare and Judgment: The Renewal of Law and Literature.Paul Yachnin & Desmond Manderson - 2010 - The European Legacy 15 (2):195-213.
    Legal theorist Desmond Manderson and Shakespearean Paul Yachnin develop parallel arguments that seek to restore a public dimension of responsibility to literary studies and a private dimension of responsibility to law. Their arguments issue from their work as the creators of the Shakespeare Moot Court at McGill University, a course in which graduate English students team up with senior Law students to argue cases in the “Court of Shakespeare,” where the sole Institutes, Codex, and Digest are comprised by the plays (...)
