Call for Papers: U.S. Feminist Judgments Project
The University of Akron School of Law and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas – William S. Boyd School of Law invite papers for the U.S. Feminist Judgments Project conference October 20-21, 2016 at the Center for Constitutional Law.
This conference will celebrate the 2016 publication of U.S. Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Opinions of the United States Supreme Court. That volume brought together more than fifty feminist legal scholars and lawyers to rewrite, using feminist reasoning, significant Supreme Court cases from the 1800s to the present day. (For more information, see the project website here.) Illustrating the value of this method of practical scholarship, the volume demonstrates that different processes and different outcomes would have been possible had decision makers applied feminist theory and methods in critical Supreme Court cases despite the restrictions of stare decisis.
Deadline: Interested persons should submit a brief written description of the proposed presentation (no more than 300 words) and a resume. Please use the subject line “U.S. Feminist Judgments Project October Conference Snapshot Proposals” and email these materials to Maria Campos (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 15, 2016. Selected speakers will be notified by June 1, 2016.
