I am co-organising the Gender, Sexuality and Law Stream this year with Alex Dymock and you can check out full details of the stream on the conference website here.
This stream seeks to draw together socio-legal scholarship from across the globe, featuring the work of scholars at any career stage from a range of disciplines working in the broad arena of gender, sexuality and law.

Papers from previous years have considered same sex marriage and citizenship, queer theory, gender and legal history, gender, sexuality and parenthood, sex work, domestic violence, homophobic hate crime, sex education, sexual violence, public sex, sexuality and the media, religion and sexuality, comparative perspectives, obscenity law and abortion, but papers pertaining to any area of gender, sexuality and law will be considered.

In previous years the stream has also included film screenings and Q&As with authors who have recently published monographs or edited collections relating to the theme of the stream, and we are keen to continue with this tradition. We are also keen to draw in scholars working outside the discipline of law to the stream to diversify the kinds of perspectives brought to the table, for example sociology, criminology, philosophy, politics, media and cultural studies etc.

We are happy to discuss ideas prior to the formal submission of an abstract or activity proposal. Please contact either Chris Ashfordor Alex Dymock
