The South-North Exchange on Theory, Culture and Law (SNX) – LatCrit invite you to submit proposals to participate from its 2016 Conference: Leading From The South: Politics Of Gender, Sex And Sexualities to be celebrated in Santo Domingo, República Dominicana from May 19-21, 2016.
To be considered for participation, please send an abstract (500-600 words) and your contact info by February 15, 2016 to: email@example.com. Decisions will be announced February 29, 2016.
We invite papers across disciplinary boundaries and from all constituencies, on how the global South has been leading current shifts in the politics of gender, sex and sexualities. Specifically, we seek to examine and explore past and present South-North relations regarding the legal treatment of subjects in terms of their sex, gender and sexual identities. We seek to establish a fruitful interdisciplinary dialogue that would proffer a holistic perspective on how certain policies have shaped and will shape the social and legal regulation of subjects based on their gender, their bodies and their desires. For that reason we seek papers on: Marriage, Families, Adoption, Labor, Violence, Child Rearing, Children’s Rights, Reproductive Rights, Poverty, Immigration, Discrimination, State Protections, State Criminalizing Practice, Emerging fields of State Regulation, and Health (among others).
The conference’s proceedings will be held in Spanish and English (with simultaneous translation). For more detail see the official Call for Papers here
