Hello colleagues, we are searching a fourth panelist to join us. We have successfully invited a discussant and a chair for the panel. Below is a brief introduction of our panel:

Contextualizing Kimberlé Crenshaw’s intersectionality theory in non-Anglo-American contexts, our panel examines the trajectories through which various types of inequality and injustice were challenged, reproduced, and reinforced in legal systems from 1600 to the present. We pay particular attention to the lived experiences of people in the legal systems who held different gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class (politicized), and (dis)ability identities. The papers on this panel advance the scholarship on legal history and socio-legal studies by revealing that the legal systems both revictimized and benefited the marginalized populations based on their interpretations of the aforementioned identities in different historical periods. 

We are particularly seeking a panelist specializing in legal history outside of China. If you would like to join us, please contact us via email at your earliest convenience!
