Madison’s home for all things French

For almost 100 years, the French House has been the center of French and francophone culture in the greater Madison area. We provide a home to about 30 students each year, from Wisconsin and the rest of the world, who choose to live in this stimulating language immersion environment on the shores of Lake Mendota. We open our doors to the community for lunches and dinners, conferences, workshops, musical events and celebrations, all with the goal of deepening our knowledge of the French language and the cultures it nourishes. We serve the community by linking you to French language...

Transnationalisation du droit

The University of Wisconsin Law School, Center for Indisciplinary French Studies, and the French House invite you to a talk in French by  Vivian Curran, Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Pittsburgh School of Law. (More about Professor Curran here.) Thursday, September 14, 4pm The French House Le va-et-vient de la transnationalisation du droit dans une affaire de crime contre l’humanité La mondialisation se répand avec la technologie et le flux de la communication et il devient incontournable qu’elle influe sur le droit, ce domaine territorial par excellence, qui ne devient pas international mais de plus en plus transnational. Ce processus doit pourtant s’insérer dans la logique des cultures nationales, car le juridique est le résultat d’une société, d’une histoire et d’un système politique, du vécu d’un peuple et des communautés qui en font partie. L’affaire Lipietz concernait un crime contre l’humanité, l’embarquement vers des camps d’internement par le gouvernement et le chemin de fer français de personnes ciblées par le Statut des Juifs, première étape vers la déportation à des camps d’extermination. L’affaire juridique s’est déroulée un demi-siècle plus tard par le biais d’un procédé  emprunté au système common law des États-Unis. La huée qui l’a entourée en France suggère à la fois les processus de transnationalisation et les défis de déchiffrage qu’elle relève. The Back-and-Forth of Law’s Transnationalization in a Case of a Crime against Humanity Globalization has spread with technology...
