Gender, Sexuality and Law: First Call for Papers

Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK, 12-14 April 2011

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 2011.

Abstracts should be submitted to Stream Organiser, Chris Ashford ( 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 2011.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 17th January 2011. Abstracts submitted by this deadline will receive a decision to enable early registration by 31st January 2011.

Last year, the Gender, Sexuality and Law Stream filled up very fast 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.
