Law and Sexuality

A commentary and resource on Law and Sexuality by Professor Chris Ashford and guests

Gender, Sexuality and Law, SLSA 2012: Call for Papers

Academic readers may be interested in this call for papers, which I am once again organising:

Gender, Sexuality and Law Stream, Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference, De Montfort University, Leicester, April 3-5 2012

The stream seeks to draw together socio-legal scholarship from across the globe, featuring scholars from a range of disciplines relating to the broad theme of gender, sexuality and law.

Past papers have considered sexuality and education law, queer theory, same-sex marriage, gender and parenthood, trans identities, sex work, domestic violence, public sex, sexuality and the media, religion and sexuality, international comparisons, and theories of gender but papers pertaining to any area of gender, sexuality and law will be considered.

Previous years have also featured screenings from new film-makers (Susan Potter’s An Ordinary Person in 2009 and Ileana Pietbruno’s Girlfriend Experience in 2010). The stream is keen to maintain a space for film in 2012. In recent years the Gender, Sexuality and Law Stream has filled up very quickly and a number of would-be presenters were sadly unable to be accommodated within the stream. Early submission is therefore suggested and aids with conference planning.

Submission of abstracts must be made by Word document e-mail attachment to: slsa2012@dmu.ac.uk

Abstracts must be no longer than 300 words and must include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

Please state clearly in the subject section of your e-mail that you are submitting an abstract for the SLSA Conference 2012. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 16th January 2012. Abstracts submitted by this deadline will receive a decision to enable early registration by 31st January 2012.

You can also contact me to informally discuss your proposal at chris.ashford@sunderland.ac.uk
