Fall 2019 • Law 610 • Credits: 3
Instructor: Michelle McKinley
This course will introduce the legal contexts in which issues of gender, race, sexuality and justice have been articulated and discussed.Ê Through the assigned readings, we will explore the multiple ways in which the law has contended with sexual difference, gender-based stereotypes, and the meaning of equality in domestic, transnational and international contexts. In addition, we will discuss how feminist theorists have thought about race, sex, gender, and sexuality in understanding and critiquing our legal system and its norms.
