Feminism and Legal Theory Project @ Emory Law: Two Upcoming Workshops

These two workshops, “Vulnerability and the Corporation” and “Aging as a Feminist Concern” both look interesting. They are organized by (Martha Fineman’s) Feminism and Legal Theory Project at Emory Law in Atlanta.

Martha Fineman, Director and Founder of the Feminism and Legal Theory Project

The calls for papers are closed in both cases, and the FLT doesn’t have any current calls for papers, but we’ll keep an eye out.  A bit more Martha Fineman news and workshop details after the jump.

The Feminism and Legal Theory project is an important hub for feminist legal scholars.  They organize very interesting workshops which attract a variety of scholars.  Flourishing visitors program too.

Professor Fineman has a new book out (right), “Transcending the Boundaries of Law: Generations of Feminism and Legal Theory“.    Last year, she published Feminist and Queer Legal Theory: Intimate Encounters, Uncomfortable Conversations (Fineman, Jackson and Romero, eds) (left).

Aging as a Feminist Concern                         January 21-22, 2011   Emory University School of Law

The legal academy, including feminist legal theorists, historically have paid relatively little attention to old age and its implications.  This workshop will address this absence and bring together a diverse group of scholars to explore the relationship between feminist theory, law and policy, and the concern of the aging.
