CFP: Gender Codes

Canadian Initiative in Law Culture and the Humanities 2nd Biennial Workshop. Ottawa, Ontario, October 22-24, 2010.

"The theme that we have selected for the next Canadian Initiative in Law Culture and the Humanities (CILCH) workshop is gender. We are interested in exploring how gender is and has been constructed, deconstructed, performed, codified, encoded, decoded, played with, inscribed, transformed or rejected in and by law, culture and the humanities. The workshop will draw upon a wide variety of approaches to gender(s) and related issues and questions – feminist, queer, masculinity studies, post structuralist, historical, and critical race approaches. We will examine issues of identity, sexuality, fluidity, conformity, disruption, the body, and more.
The central theme will be gender in relation to law and the humanities; the variations will be diverse and rich."
Submission deadline for proposals: June 15, 2010.
