2010/11 Marlee Kline Lecture in Social Justice @ UBC

I sent a note to my Canadian feminist professors list serv asking for ideas for posts and Susan Boyd, the Chair in Feminist Legal Studies at UBC wrote to me about the upcoming Marlee Kline Lecture in Social Justice.  I’ve written about Prof. Ruthann Robson (CUNY),  before – she’ll be giving the lecture.

Amazingly, just a few hours before she wrote to me I came across this Correspondence…for Marlee Kline; Robson, Ruthann 16 Can. J. Women & L. 13 (2004) . The link is to Hein Online, or here is a pdf.

(where was I when this was published?

why do I come to things so late?

I’m afraid I am always going to be Columbus, sailing about,

lost, making imaginary discoveries –

i must hope at least not to be imperial about these things).

A few weeks ago, we read Kline and Currie in my Law/Gender/Equality class here at Osgoode.  If you don’t know her,this is from UBC’s website.

Marlee Gayle Kline became a member of the Faculty of Law in 1989. Professor Kline died in 2001 after a lengthy and determined struggle with leukemia. Her work on feminist legal theory and critical race theory, child welfare law and policy, law’s continued colonialism, and restructuring of the social welfare state is internationally acclaimed.
