The Feminism and Legal Theory Project

More Than 30 Years of Revolutionary Scholarship

The Feminism and Legal Theory Project fosters interdisciplinary examinations of the ways in which the interaction of law and culture shapes expectations, policies, and practices related to gender. More specifically, the project addresses the intersection of gender with issues relating to age, race, class, ability, and sexuality. It has also generated a new theoretical venture in the Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative that moves beyond identities to bring together diverse perspectives and disciplines to advance a social justice framework rooted in the universality of human vulnerability and the need for a responsive state.

Objectives

  • To provide a means to introduce scholarship that applies feminist theory and methodology into legal debate, legislative reform movements, and the broader academic community through the publication of conference papers
  • To support and encourage feminist scholarship on gender and legal equality issues that analyze the differential impact of law on women and men and to consider also in this regard differences that exist or arise between differently situated women
  • To provide a forum within which feminist theorists can present their work and receive feedback from other scholars who share a common theoretical perspective and methodology

Nothing is off limits! The FLT Project is committed to challenging the status quo.

The Feminism and Legal Theory Project began in 1984 by Martha A. Fineman at the University of Wisconsin Law School. The initial mission of the FLT Project was to provide a forum for interdisciplinary feminist scholarship addressing important issues in law and society. The early years of the project were funded through grants from the Wisconsin Law School’s Institute for Legal Studies. Over the first six years, summer workshops brought scholars together around contested issues where they considered such topics as gender difference, violence against women, and motherhood.

In 1990, the FLT Project moved with Martha Feinman to Columbia Law School, where the number of workshop sessions each year increased from one in the summer to three or four during the academic year. In 1999, the project relocated to Cornell Law School where Martha held the first endowed Chair in the United States in Feminist Jurisprudence. The project once again expanded its scope, adding “Uncomfortable Conversations” to the regular workshop schedule.

In 2004, the FLT Project moved to its current home at Emory University School of Law, where Martha holds a Robert W. Woodruff Professorship. Funds from the Woodruff Professorship support the project and its programming. The move to Emory and Atlanta has allowed the FLT Project to reach a greater audience and attract scholars from around the world.

At Emory, the FLT Project initiated a very successful Visiting Scholars Program. Each year between five and eight scholars from around the world come to Emory for periods of time ranging from one week to the entire academic year. In addition, the project added a series of speakers on “Critical Perspectives on the Core Curriculum” to the existing programming in 2005.

Over the past several decades, the FLT Project has grown from holding an annual conference to hosting multiple workshops, conversations, and presentations throughout the year. As a result, each year distinguished visitors and speakers bring a wealth of new ideas and energy to Emory.

The FLT Project has also taken its message “on the road” and partnered with groups of interested feminists from other universities, including the Universities of Wisconsin and SUNY-Buffalo in the United States and Keele and Ulster Universities in the United Kingdom. Holding joint workshops and encouraging others to explore gender issues has allowed the FLT model to expand beyond the project itself.

Even with the tremendous growth in programming over the past several years, the FLT Project’s basic structure and core commitment remain the same: to foster interdisciplinary examinations of specific law and policy topics of particular interest to women. More generally, the project addresses the intersection of gender with issues relating to race, class, ability, and sexuality.

Faculty Profile »

Stu Marvel LLM PhD

Stu Marvel began her time at Emory Law in 2011 as a Visiting Scholar with the Feminism and Legal Theory Project, and transitioned into the role as postdoctoral fellow in 2012. She completed her PhD at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Canada in April 2015. While at Emory she has been teaching an upper-year law course on gender and sexuality that offers students a comparative transnational perspective on rights, identity and justice. Marvel's doctoral research relies upon an empirical study of LGBTQ families across Ontario and their use of assisted reproductive technologies, and seeks to develop new legal frameworks for queer kinship and reproductive rights. Her postdoctoral research will expand on these conceptual models while exploring the role of vulnerability and resilience in a comparative legal analysis of queer family-making projects.

Marvel served as Chair of the Osgoode Graduate Law Student Association from 2009-2010 and was invited as a PECANS visiting scholar to the Centre for Law, Gender and Sexuality at Kent Law School in Canterbury, England in 2011. She graduated from the University of East Anglia with an MA in gender analysis for international development before receiving her LLM at Osgoode Hall. Previously, Marvel worked as communications liaison at the Korean National Commission for UNESCO in South Korea and served as gender advisor to the Ministry of Women in The Gambia. Her work is funded by a SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarship and York Graduate Scholarships, as well as a Michael Smith Foreign Studies Supplement award to support her residency in Atlanta.

Before law school, Yvana worked in higher education, both as a professor and administrator. She has taught college courses in logic, ethics, and composition, and has presented her scholarly work at conferences and workshops across the US and Canada. She has also worked as an administrator and publications coordinator for the Cancer and Leukemia Group B, of the University of Chicago.

Atieno Mboya Samandari LLB JD LLM SJD

Visiting Scholars

Paula Ahumada LLM

Paula Ahumada is a doctoral candidate at Universidad de Chile School of Law. Her areas of interest are legal and political theory, constitutional law, and human rights. Her current research looks at how collective interests work as limitations to fundamental rights using different frameworks. In particular, her doctoral investigation explores the legitimate regulations of freedom of the press and expression in Chile, considering how the Inter-American system of human rights has interpreted this freedom as a cornerstone for a democratic society.

Fiona de Londras PhdD LLM

Fiona de Londras is a Professor of Law at Durham University (UK), Adjunct Professor at UNSW School of Law (Sydney, Australia), and Visiting Professor at UCD School of Law (Dublin, Ireland). She has been a regular visitor to Emory Law School since 2006, writing a substantial portion of her doctoral thesis while at the Feminism and Legal Theory Project. Her work is primarily concerned with what happens to human rights law and discourse in the context of "crisis." In the main, she has explored this in the context of (counter-)terrorist crises; however her research is also concerned with what happens when human rights institutions experience crises of capacity, when there are political crises about highly sensitive issues (such as abortion in Ireland), and in the aftermath of catastrophic violent crises such as war or genocide. De Londras has published or edited more than 60 books, chapters and articles. She is the co-editor of Legal Studies, Joint Editor-in-Chief of the Irish Yearbook of International Law, and founder of the collaborative academic blog Human Rights in Ireland. You can find out more about her work and her publications here »

HeinOnline logo

The Feminism and Legal Theory Project has archived its materials in the Hugh F. MacMillan Law Library at Emory University School of Law and digitally in the "Women and the Law" collection on HeinOnline »  Access to HeinOnline is available through most academic libraries. “Women and the Law” can also be purchased as a stand-alone subscription.

FLT Archive

The FLT archive contains a range of materials relating to over 80 workshops and conferences run under the auspices of the FLT Project for over 25 years, held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (1984—1990), Columbia University (1990—1999), Cornell University (1999—2003), and Emory University (2004—). FLT is of course Martha Fineman’s project, both in its inception and continuity, and the changes in venues across the years reflect Martha’s own career trajectory. Despite Professor Fineman’s centrality to the project, she has deliberately taken on the role of facilitator, rather than presenter, seeking to bring together other feminists to validate established expertise and also encourage newly emerging scholars from around the world.

The archive contains published FLT anthologies, materials from all FLT workshops and conferences, as well as CD/DVD recordings of one-off presentations by leading scholars. The workshop and conference materials include initial papers written pre-presentation (in workbooks), actual (sometimes revised) presented papers at conferences (on CD/DVD), and, uniquely, Q & A sessions following the presentations (again, on CD/DVD). These are unedited, providing a unique insight into each event.

The materials reflect trends in feminist socio-legal theory across the past 25+ years. Several conferences have had the sub-heading of "Uncomfortable Conversations," tackling head-on tensions between competing theoretical positions. Enduring themes include (competing) feminist theories; concepts of the family, parenthood, and childhood; gendered inequality and its intersection with other disadvantaged minority identities (race, class, sexual identity, disability, and age); the material well-being of women and children; economic theory; vulnerability, dependency, and resilience; women’s subordination in law; and critical perspectives in law.

Some discourse has shifted quite dramatically, e.g. from focus on the public/private divide to viewing feminism through the lens of post-colonialism and global frameworks. Themes about parents and children have, in particular, taken on different perspectives across the quarter century. In the early 1990s interest was focussed on representations of motherhood; in the mid-1990s this had shifted towards the parent-child dyad beyond gendered normativity (alongside Martha’s own work, e.g. The Neutered Mother); and by the later 1990s one of the "Uncomfortable Conversations" was on the tensions which can arise between the legal rights of mothers and their children. Between 2000 and 2010, the focus had widened to include masculinities, father’s rights, and the socio-legal implications of genetic manipulation, reproductive technologies, and the "pregnant man."

The FLT archive is a unique historical record and a wonderful resource for feminist research with so much to offer on the development of feminist socio-legal theory across the last quarter of a century.
