The University of Akron School of Law and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas – William S. Boyd School of Law seeks papers to be presented during the U.S. Feminist Judgments Project conference October 20-21, 2016 at the Center for Constitutional Law in Akron, Ohio. The are also seeking proposals for “snapshot” presentations to be included in the final plenary of the conference.
The conference is designed to provide the appropriate setting and the essential participants for a structured conversation that explores and assesses the effects of feminist methods and theories on real-world judicial decision making. We expect the conference will identify common core principles and propose directions for future scholarship. To this end, we seek proposals for papers that incorporate feminist theory and methods or report on research that furthers feminist thought. The organizers view feminism and feminist theory broadly as covering issues of inequality related to gender and gender norms, but also intersectional dynamics related to race, sexual orientation, immigration status, socioeconomic class, and disability.
