On April 22 & 23 in Dighton, Massachusetts the IGLP hosted a Pre-Meeting for the June 2011 Workshop Pro-Seminar, Gender in Postcolonial Legal Orders.   The meeting, which was convened by IGLP Director David Kennedy and IGLP Advisory Council Member Prof. Janet Halley, brought together a broad network of scholars whose research is concerned with the ways gender, sex, sexuality, reproduction and the family have played pivotal roles in the rise of colonialism and of modern capitalism, in the formation and dissemination of classical legal thought, in the onset of “the social,” in decolonization and the formation of nations, and in the continual reconfiguration of liberalism’s global reach through “market oriented” economic policies and human rights advocacy.

The meeting served as a starting point for discussion and writing in these areas in advance of the Gender in Postcolonial Legal Orders Pro Seminar which was held as part of the larger IGLP June Workshop

This Workshop is for invited participants only.
