Workshops | The Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative

Workshops for the Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative are held throughout the year and give scholars an opportunity to share their work in a supportive and collegial environment. Each year, scholars working on a variety of traditional legal topics come together to explore how their analyses can benefit from the application of a vulnerability lens.  Some topics recently considered include: globalization; labor, and the legal organization of work; the limits of social justice; business and corporate structures; the role of the family; and the need for environmental justice. Workshops are structured to allow for extended and meaningful participation by non-presenters and are open the public.

Feminist Approaches to State and Governance

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Feminism and Legal Theory Project (FLT). During that time, we have held workshops, hosted visitors, and sought to encourage and facilitate feminist analyses of law and institutions. In order to pique interest in and encourage more use of the FLT archive, we are holding several workshops centered around some of the past themes the Project explored that remain critically relevant today. For this session, we seek working papers exploring what a feminist legal theory approach to the State or the process of governance should entail (December 15-16, 2023, Emory University School of Law, Hybrid Workshop).
