Once again, I’m organising the Gender, Sexuality and Law Stream at the Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference.  It will be taking place 9-11 April 2014 in Aberdeen.  The conference website is available here.

Submission of abstracts is via EasyChair, and the deadline for abstracts is Monday 27 January.

Call for Papers

Gender, Sexuality and Law (GSL) scholarship continues to grow and embrace a range of theoretical and impact-focused scholarship. The last twelve months have seen the continued dominance of same-sex marriage as a leading socio-legal issue in this field, and there is an increased curiosity regarding future directions and debates in the GSL area.

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.

The stream also welcomes the creative presentation of research ideas and has included a number of UK film premieres in previous years. Poetry, film and performance will continue to be welcomed at the 2014 conference.

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.
