Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, The Feminism and Legal Theory Project, The Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative, the Institute for Feminist Legal Studies at Osgoode, and the AALS Section on Women in Legal Education will host a Summer Feminist Legal Theory Series.

  • Property and Resilience
    April 23, 2021. This workshop, which will take the form of an extended active dialogue about several core themes/questions, will explore the role vulnerability theory can play in understanding and reimagining property law.
  • Vulnerability Theory, the Employment Relationship, and the State
    March 12-13, 2021. We intend this workshop to cover an array of topics that center on the legal and ideological or conceptual “evolution” of the corporation in relation to its legitimizing societal role in responding to human vulnerability. We welcome the participation of scholars working in law and related disciplines, including economics, community development, history, political science, sociology, and social psychology.
  • A Workshop on Vulnerability and Corporate Subjectivity
    This virtual Zoom workshop will draw on the analytical tools offered by vulnerability theory, allowing participants to think through the complex relationships between corporations as legal subjects, legal or state governance of corporate activity, and the hope to achieve goals of social justice within a neoliberal age.

Upcoming Workshops

  • A Workshop on Constructing an Ethical or Moral Approach to State Responsibility
    March 31 – April 1, 2023. Human rights and human vulnerability theory are both concerned with the achievement of social justice and the role of the State in this endeavor. Their approaches to the State, however, are markedly different. We are pleased to announce a workshop on human rights and human vulnerability, bringing in dialogue the work of Professor Michael Perry on human rights and Professor Martha Albertson Fineman on human vulnerability.
