Online workshop: The Contours of Legal Personhood (Nov 10)
Legal personhood is a central legal notion. It underlies foundational questions pertaining to the legal status of AIs, animals, corporations and natural objects. Though legal personhood has recently started to receive more attention from scholars, it is still an undertheorized topic. All of the presentations at this workshop will scrutinize the notion from different perspectives.
The workshop is an online “spinoff” of the conference “SELF: Theoretical Approaches to Subjectivity, Personhood, and Agency”, which had to be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
Pawel Banas (Warsaw & Jagiellonian): “Legal Personhood as an Artefact”
Lawrence Solum (Georgetown): "Personhood: Reflections on Legal Doctrine and Moral Concepts"
Zuzanna Krzykalska (Jagiellonian): “Construction of a Legal Agent”
Claudio Novelli (Bologna): “AI and Legal Personhood: A Conceptual Analysis”
Organizer: Visa Kurki (Helsinki)
