The conference will engage lawyers, historians, and social scientists in an interdisciplinary analysis of the important, engaging, or enigmatic EU law cases in order to develop ‘thick’ descriptions of them, more accurate contextual histories, engagement with the leading personalities involved, and critical perspectives in European integration. This will go beyond the standard ‘text book’ analyses of these cases and ‘fold’ the political science and developing historical research in together with the broader legal framework. The aim is to bring together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds into an open and productive conversation and publish the fruits of this as a volume with a leading press that we think it is timely to influence both the scholarly debates on EU law as well as its teaching.
