The Expanding Spaces of Law

Mariana Valverde

Stanford University Press

Legal geography has flourished in recent years, to the benefit of legal studies. This chapter considers whether space has been overemphasized to the detriment of analyses of temporality and the way in which spatialization affects temporalization (and vice versa). Canvassing studies from the legal anthropology of temporality and from legal historiography, the chapter argues that legal scholars should develop new tools for integrating temporal and spatial analyses. Bakhtin's “chronotope,” in particular, is presented as an important attempt at integration and serves the author as a central source of inspiration.

Keywords:   chronotope, spatiotemporality, temporality and law
