International Conference on Gender and "The Law": Limits, Contestations and Beyond
Jun 04, 2014 09:00
4-6 June 2014 - Dokuz Eylul University and Gediz University, Izmir, Turkey
The conference aims to engage with different legal systems across cultures focusing on the ways in which social mores are institutionalised in societies aiming to render a subtle, complex account of the discursive construction of gender, linking together ideologies, language, their cultural groundings and their operation in legal context. It invites the participants to bring in the cases that enable further discussions in relation to broader contexts including social, political, cultural, economic and legal processes that underlie the construction of the gendered subjectivities.
This conference is open for papers across disciplines, including, but not limited to, legal studies, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, cultural studies, politics, international relations and else.
There will also be a post-conference trip on Saturday, 7th June, to the ancient city of Ephesus, kindly sponsored by our local partners.
