Save the date, and some travel $: Feminist Legal Studies Seminar at QMUL summer 2016: Mixing Feminism, Legality and Knowledge

End of June in London, UK.  Definitely hoping to be there and conserving my institutional funds for the purpose.  Anyone else? More information coming soon from the organizers (who include recent IFLS visitor, Feminist Legal Studies Editor-in-Chief and QMUL Professor Ruth Fletcher.

In addition, the Osgoode IFLS is hoping to start preliminary discussions with FLS and other interested organizations in Canada about a follow up meeting in Toronto summer 2017…

Here’s the current blurb for the London Seminar- a schedule and more detailed description is currently in draft.

Feminist Legal Studies will hold a special seminar at Queen Mary University of London to consider anew the relationship between feminism, legality and knowledge. In anticipation of FLS’s 25th birthday in 2017, we would like to think with others about the kind of ‘kitchen table’ that FLS might provide into the future. How might feminist legal studies – the approach and the journal – best use its food, equipment, techniques, time, space, mood, energy and commitment?

How shall FLS scholars and associates make the most of what we have in a room that can sometimes be confining and confusing, yet also exciting and sustaining? How do others engage with the processes and products of our kitchen table?

In considering such questions and more, we propose to draw reflexively on feminist legacies of praxis, internationalism and openness, as we ‘stock-up’ and critically reflect on know-how, protest and publishing practices.
