Feminists @ Law: Revisiting Identity Symposium
You are invited to attend the Feminists @ Law: Revisiting Identity Symposium — a two-day event hosted by the Faculty of Law, at the University of Technology Sydney.
The theme of identity has been central to feminist theory but has been repeatedly challenged, fractured and reiterated through material, representational and political frameworks based on categories of class, race, sexuality, gender and disability. What place, then, if any, should ‘identity’ have in feminist approaches to law in 2017? Can ‘identity’ still be used as a legitimate critical and strategic category?
The symposium will provide a rare opportunity for feminists working in and with law from a range of contexts — including scholars, practitioners and activists — to come together to discuss aspects of their work. Presentations will focus on feminist engagements, re-engagements and disengagements with identity within the broad field of law, legal theory and practice.
Some participants will present on their work. Others are invited to participate in the conversations. The symposium will adopt a collaborative and egalitarian format. There is no registration cost and catering will be provided.
