Talk by Katherine Abrams of Berkeley Law
Wednesday November 4, 2015
Rm 2027, Osgoode Hall (Keele campus)
Kathryn Abrams is Herma Hill Kay Distinguished Professor of Law at UC-Berkeley. Her areas of expertise include feminist legal theory, law and social movements, constitutional law, and law and the emotions. Her widely-anthologized work has appeared in Yale Law Journal, Columbia Law Review, California Law Review, Law and Philosophy, and Nomos, among others. She is the editor of two special issues: “Witness” for Women’s Studies Quarterly (co-edited with Irene Kacandes, 2008) and “Legal Feminism Now,” for Issues in Legal Scholarship, 2011. Her current empirically-based project explores the legal consciousness of undocumented immigrants in the anti-immigrant state of Arizona. It analyzes the ways that narrative, tactical innovation, and emotion management have enabled undocumented immigrants to emerge as effective legal claims-makers under highly adverse political circumstances.
