This symposium will focus on the nature of legally constituted spaces, as well as on processes that reinforce, undermine, and/or defy legal notions of the spatial. For instance, illegal practices, unauthorized persons, and non-jurisdictional spaces may reinforce jurisdictions and other spatio-legal notions but may also disrupt such frameworks altogether.
