The University of Baltimore School of Laws Center on Applied Feminism seeks submissions for its Seventh Annual Feminist Legal Theory Conference, Applied Feminism and Health, on March 6-7, 2014.
This conference seeks to explore the intersections between feminist legal theory and physical, mental, public, and community health in the United States and abroad. Papers might explore the following questions: What impact has feminist legal theory had on womens health policy and practice? How might feminist legal theory respond to the health challenges facing communities and individuals, as well as increase access to health care? What sort of support should society and law provide to ensure good health? How do law and feminist legal theory conceptualize the role of the state in relation to health rights and reproductive justice? What are the links between health, feminist legal theory, and sports? Are there rights to good health and what are their foundations? How do health needs and conceptions of rights vary across cultural, economic, religious, and other identities? What are the areas where health justice is needed and how might feminist legal theory help?
Deadline: Abstracts must be submitted by Friday, 5 p.m. on November 1, 2013, to ubfeministconference[@]gmail.com. Further details on submission after the break: im
