The Journal of Legal Education just published my review of Colin Dayan’s book The Law Is a White Dog: How Legal Rituals Make and Unmake Persons (2011). Have a look!
Big thanks to Robert Nichols for interviewing me for Upping the Anti: A Journal of Theory and Action.
I wrote “Trans Law Reform Strategies, Co-Optation, and the Potential for Transformative Change” in Women’s Rights Law Reporter in 2009. You can read it here.
I wrote “Keynote Address: Trans Law and Politics on a Neoliberal Landscape” in Temple Political and Civil Rights Law Review in 2009. You can read it here.
These edited Keynote remarks from the Temple Political and Civil Rights Law Review Symposium on transgender law address how questions of law reform strategy relate to critical understandings of neoliberalism. The paper addresses questions of administrative governance, identity documentation, the relationship between law and social movements, and questions of economic and racial justice as applied to transgender politics.
My article “Compliance is Gendered: Struggling for Gender Self-Determination in a Hostile Economy” was published in Transgender Rights: History, Politics and Law, edited by Paisley Currah, Shannon Minter, Richard Juang (2006).
I co-authored with Craig Willse “Freedom in a Regulatory State?: Lawrence, Marriage and Biopolitics” publisehd in Widener Law Review in 2005. You can read it here.
This paper attempts to trace the links between the Lawrence v. Texas decision and campaigns for gay marriage rights in order to envision movements that seek justice for more than just the most racially and economically privileged lesbians and gay men. The authors outline the limits of the agenda represented by Lawrence and propose alternative modes for resisting the coercive regulation of sexuality, gender, and family formations.
