This course is an advanced treatment of the relationships between law and gender in the contemporary U.S., with additional attention to intersections of nationality, race, and sexuality. We will study legal cases, statutes, and interdisciplinary scholarly writings on topics such as gender and international human rights law, surveillance and regulation in the lives of poor women, appearance discrimination, violence, and workplace harassment. Additional topic areas may be developed in consultation with the enrolled students. Local lawyers practicing in LGBT and women’s rights will visit the class and share their current legal work. Assignments will include a research project, presentations, and write-up.
