The metaphor of corporate personhood troubles many critics, especially in the wake of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Citizens United. Are corporations people? Can corporations speak? Should we expect corporations to act like citizens? This panel will bring together cultural anthropologists and legal scholars to revisit some of the contested jurisprudence on this subject. Speakers will consider the political possibilities offered by blocking and/or facilitating the metaphor of corporate personhood, and ask whether current rhetorics of corporate social responsibility might generate unanticipated consequences for corporate agents - indeed, put into question who counts as a corporate agent.
