On 14 January 2015, the Transnational Law Institute hosted its inaugural Signature lecture, in collaboration with the Transnational Law Colloquium series.  The Signature Lectures are delivered by world-renowned scholars whose work tackles central challenges in global governance, and Professor Annelise Riles, (Cornell University Law School and Department of Anthropology), is one of the world’s foremost legal anthropologists.

Riles' lecture charted the fast changing epistemic landscape of ethnographic work in the context of comparative and transnational law, and spoke on the promise of collaboration in transnational and interdisciplinary scholarship.

Professor Riles also conducted a Methods Lab discussion and gave an inside account of her ground-breaking ethnographic work on transnational financial regulation. 

Methods Lab speakers address cutting-edge areas of research in their presentations and make themselves available for a lively discussion.  These sessions provide an excellent opportunity for fellow researchers as well as graduate students to ask difficult questions, and collectively engage in addressing the challenges of conducting complex transnational research projects today.

In a wide-ranging interview, Professor Riles discussed the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster in Japan, the rise of ‘data politics’, the Meridian 180 project and the state of dialogue in North-East Asia. 

A video of Professor Riles’ lecture can be seen below.

An audio of an interview with Professor Riles can be found below.
