Call for Papers for UB School of Law’s 2019 Feminist Legal Theory Conference

The Center on Applied Feminism at the University of Baltimore School of Law seeks paper proposals for the Eleventh Feminist Legal Theory Conference. The conference will be on Friday, April 12, 2019, and the theme is the #MeToo movement.

MeTooThe resurgent #MeToo movement and the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings have put a spotlight on sexual harassment and sexual assault in our society. Across America, the #MeToo movement has spurred women to share their stories of sexual harassment, run for office, advocate for change, litigate abuses and build coalitions. As a result of this social movement, there are emerging proposals to change the law, workplaces, schools and family dynamics to decrease sexual harassment and assault and ensure better responses to complaints.

The Center, led by Professor Margaret Johnson, is seeking submissions of papers that focus on the topic of Applied Feminism and #MeToo. To submit a paper proposal, please complete this form and include a 500-word abstract. Deadline is Friday, Nov. 2, 2018. Learn more here.
