In this CRN we actively seek broad interdisciplinary dialog, collaboration and action that challenges preconceived notions of ”˜queer”™, ”˜the authorized”™, and ”˜theory”™. We expect to examine our personal roles and complicities in constructions of oppression and emancipation as properly.

The CRN deliberately facilitates research collaborations and mentoring relationships. In addition, we use the annual enterprise assembly to strategize about different ways feminist scholars can work collectively. The Feminist Legal Theory CRN fosters a community of scholars with a shared interest in gender because it intersects with race, class, sexual orientation, gender identification, disability and different statuses/identities. Although many students would benefit from extra discussions on feminist points, the fact that feminist theory cuts throughout so many fields hampers dialog.

Recent annual conferences of the LSA have demonstrated that the Law and Society Association’s full potential for scholarship by Africans or about African legislation and society has not been achieved.
