Law and Society Association Meeting

LSA in Minneapolis

The end of May is going to be an exciting time, at least at the Law and Society Association’s (LSA) annual meeting in Minneapolis. It’s the 50th anniversary conference, so I am expecting a big birthday party. Here are some of the events in which I am involved:

Thursday, May 29 at the Hilton Minneapolis

Business meeting of the newly established Collaborative Research Network on Ethnography, Law and Society. It is also the launch of the new virtual issue of PoLAR: Political and Legal Anthropology Review, which shares the theme of the LSA conference, Law and Inequalities – Global and Local. The issue provides free access to 9 articles, 4 additional pieces written by authors, and an interview with Professors Sally Engle Merry and Susan Bibler Coutin

Friday, May 30 at the Hilton Minneapolis

Presenting the conference paper, Refashioning Jurisdiction through Hybridity: Technologies of the United Nations-International Olympic Committee Legacy Projects

Sunday, June 1 at the University of St. Thomas School of Law

Serving as the discussant on the panel, Regulating Masculinity: Feminist Approaches to the Criminalization of Male Bodies, which features a great group of speakers, including Nicole Lindahl (UC Berkeley), Karin Martin (John Jay College, CUNY), Mimi Kim (CSU-Long Beach), and Margo Mahan (UC Berkeley)
