Gender and The Law Conference Proceedings Published

The e-book brings together selected full-length papers, edited by Sibel Safi and Eda Aycan Aras, from the presentations of the conference, offering different perspectives and studies on gender and law-related issues.


LCSS has now published the proceedings e-book of the international conference on Gender & "The Law": Limits, Contestations and Beyond which took place in Izmir on 4-6 June 2014. The e-book brings together selected full-length papers, edited by Sibel Safi and Eda Aycan Aras, from the presentations of the conference, offering different perspectives and studies on gender and law-related issues.

The book offers thought-provoking papers on 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. The book covers lively discussions of gender and the law in relation to broader contexts including social, political, cultural, economic and legal processes that underlie the construction of the gendered subjectivities.

This collection of papers will be a great source of information for academics, researchers, students, NGOs, governmental departments or anybody looking to gain a crosscultural, multidisciplinary and diverse intake into the subjects of gender and the law.

Lisa Webley, Professor of Empirical Legal Studies (Westminster University), who was one of the keynote speakers and conference committee members kindly wrote the foreword for this book. In her foreword, Prof Webley looked into certain aspects of gendered socio-legal sphere cautiously as well as touching on the main characteristics of the papers written for this book.

Our heartfelt thanks go to our editors Dr Safi and Ms Aras for their meticulous work, to Prof Webley for her invaluable contribution and detailed feedback and last, but by no means least, to the authors of the papers for sharing their brilliant work with us.
