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.
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.
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). Click the pictures for ordering at Amazon.ca.
Vulnerability and the ‘Corporation’ October 29-30, 2010 Emory University School of Law
This Conference will focus on understanding how the states respond (or fail to respond) to individual, structural and community catastrophes. This workshop will build on the notion of a responsive state and consider the relationsjip between corporate structures, vulnerability, and state responsiveness.
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.
