Workshops and Conferences

A major component of the project is a series of annual events, comprising Workshops in 2020 and 2021 and a Conference in 2022. Details for these events can be found below. Smaller, satellite workshops are planned, and details will be added in due course. 

These events are primarily intended as working sessions for members of the project, and places are limited. However, there is some capacity for selected invitees. If you would like to participate in an event – and actively participate in the research activities of the project – please get in touch.

17 March 2020: POSTPONEMENT DUE TO COVID-19

Travel and gatherings such as workshops are currently subject to increasing levels of restriction around the world to contain and/or delay the spread of COVID-19. As a precautionary measure, we have decided to delay our First Workshop (26-27 June 2020) until further notice, hopefully in Q3 or Q4 2020.

In the meantime, the P.I.s are exploring alternative online formats for collaboration and continuing with the organisation of the Mann Papers so that work can continue despite the inevitable challenges facing us in the weeks and months ahead.

We urge everyone to take care of themselves and others and follow the guidelines of the relevant authorities. 

2020

London

The first Project Workshop will take place at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in London on 26-27 June 2020.

The main purpose of this workshop will be to share research agendas and gain an introduction to the Mann Papers.

2021

Frankfurt

The second Project Workshop will take place at the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History in Frankfurt on 10-11 June 2021.

This workshop will serve to present preliminary findings and set the timetable for publication of research findings.

2022

Berlin

The Project will conclude with a Conference at the Humboldt-Universität Centre for British Studies in Berlin at a date TBC in 2022.

This Conference will involve an extended audience and provide the opportunity for the project team to present final research findings.

FIRST PROJECT WORKSHOP

[Postponed] London 2020

The First Project Workshop will be held at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL). BIICL is an apt setting to launch the Project, as Mann was a member of the Council of the Institute since its inception in 1958. BIICL, together with Herbert Smith Freehills, also hosts the annual F.A. Mann Lecture. Holding the first project workshop in London not only honours Mann’s elective home; it also provides the opportunity to reaffirm Anglo-German research networks in the wake of Brexit.

SECOND PROJECT WORKSHOP

Frankfurt 2021

The second project workshop will be held on 10-11 June 2021 at the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History (MPI). The MPI is a site of considerable activity around legal biographies, and this workshop will help the project team – many of whom are subject-matter experts rather than legal historians per se – to profit from the Mann Papers and ground their work on Mann in insights from his biography, historical context, and social network.

FINAL PROJECT CONFERENCE

Berlin 2022

The final Conference will be held at the administering institution, the Humboldt University of Berlin Centre for British Studies. Mann undertook his doctoral studies at the Berlin University. In the 1930s, the Law Faculty of the University was, like other German law faculties, a site of persecution of Jewish scholars. This provides the opportunity to reaffirm and contextualise Mann’s place in the German legal academy, and also to make a positive contribution to the historiography of German-Jewish legal scholarship.
