Kimberlé Crenshaw at Thomas Jefferson Law School Women and Law Conference
I’d like to invite Concurring Opinions readers to attend the 2010 Women and the Law Conference at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. This event, our Tenth Annual Women and Law conference, will examine the past, present and future of intersectionality. Speakers will discuss ways that intersectional analysis illuminates stories of marginalization in the lives of women of color and other groups; and will set out concrete and aspirational visions of what it means to use intersectional awareness to reshape social movements and advance social justice.
The conference will take place on April 30th at 2 p.m. The keynote speaker is Kimberlé Crenshaw of UCLA and Columbia Law Schools, who will deliver the Ruth Bader Ginsburg lecture. She will be followed by a distinguished panel of critical race scholars: Devon Carbado, Cheryl Harris, Russell Robinson and Saul Sarabia.
Registration is free for students and faculty. Additional information and registration is available at www.tjsl.edu/wlp_2010 . If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope to see some of you there!
