Academic Colloquium. King’s College London. 20 June 2019.
On 20 June 2019, the FLaG team hosted an academic colloquium, to discuss some of the early analysis arising from the different strands of the project, in conversation with critical, interdisciplinary, theoretically-engaged academic scholarship. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the discussion throughout the day.
Special thanks to our panelists – Diamond Ashiagbor, Shona Hunter, Sumi Madhok, Ambreena Manji, Vannesa Munro, Alain Pottage, Christine Quinan, Yvette Taylor, Tessa Wright and Helen Xanthaki – for responding to the team’s papers and taking part in the panel discussions. An open discussion on fluctuating intensities: thinking about gender through other socio-legal categories was also very interesting (Flora will be posting a blog on this shortly).
