A message from the organizers of the Feminist Legal Theory Critical Research Network:
Dear Feminist Legal Theory CRN members,
First, thank you for a fabulous annual meeting! Our twenty-two panels were an enormous success, generating tremendous interest and engagement. The submission cycle for 2020 will come before we know it, so we need volunteers to plan the CRN panels for the LSA annual meeting in Denver in 2020. If you are interested in helping to plan next year’s meeting, please sign up here by Friday, June 7th.
Second, we write to follow up on the evening of action. As you know, we converted the CRN’s social event into a brainstorming session to explore what we can do – as CRN members – in our scholarship, teaching, and advocacy to further gender equality generally and especially in light of the Supreme Court’s current make-up. There was a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and we generated many terrific ideas (see below) for each track: scholarship, teaching, and advocacy. Our next step is that we need volunteers to (1) play a leadership role for each track, and (2) serve on the committee for each track. Our goal is for each committee to develop an action plan for achieving some of the ideas we identified. Each committee will work separately and then present the action plan at a gathering that will coincide with the AALS annual meeting, in D.C. in January. If you are interested in either leading or participating in these efforts, please use this sign-up sheet and respond by Friday, June 7th.
Finally, Susan Hazeldean volunteered (thank you, Susan!) to reactivate our TWEN site. We will use this for all CRN communications from now on. More information to come soon.
