We invite you to join us for a one-day conference on Law and Love, to be held at Quinnipiac Law School on Saturday, October 3, 2009.
While some of the most significant and provocative interdisciplinary legal scholarship over the last two decades has emphasized the constitutive relation between law and violence, with this conference we hope to engender a new engagement with questions that may be said to be repressed in the concerted focus on the law-violence dyad. Speakers will include Jennifer Brown (Law, Quinnipiac), Marianne Constable (Rhetoric, UC-Berkeley), Jennifer Culbert (Political Science, Johns Hopkins), Anne Dailey (Law, University of Connecticut), Tom Dumm (Political Science, Amherst College), Jon Goldberg-Hiller (Political Science, University of Hawaii), Susan Sage Heinzelman (English, University of Texas-Austin), James Martel (Political Science, San Francisco State University), Naomi Mezey (Law, Georgetown), and Nomi Stolzenberg (Law, University of Southern California).
The conference will convene in the Faculty Commons at Quinnipiac Law School from 9 am to 6 pm. Parking is available in the Visitor's Lot next to the law school. To RSVP, or for more information, please contact Prof. Linda Meyer (Linda.Meyer@quinnipiac.edu
) or Prof. Martha Umphrey (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
