“In effect, we live in a legal, social, and institutional world where the only relations possible are extremely few, extremely simplified, and extremely poor. There is, of course, the relation of marriage, and the relations of family, but how many other relations should exist…!” -Michel Foucault

A Symposium Honoring Judith Butler’s Contributions to the Scholarship and Practice of Gender and Sexuality Law

Friday, March 5, 2010 9:00 am

Presented by the the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law and the Center for the Study of Law and Culture at Columbia Law School

Each year the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law devotes a day-long symposium to the significant contributions of a senior scholar to the literature of gender and/or sexuality law and theory. This year’s symposium will recognize the work of Judith Butler, the Maxine Elliot Professor in the Departments of Rhetoric and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley.

Her works have had significant, and in many cases paradigm shifting influence in the fields of feminism, queer theory, political philosophy, and ethics. The Symposium will take up Butler’s work on gender, sexuality, kinship, terrorism, torture, war and free speech.

Register here for the Symposium.

Her work of greatest influence in law includes:

Gender Trouble (1990), Bodies That Matter (1993), The Psychic Life of Power: Theories in Subjection (1997), Excitable Speech: A Politics of the Performative (1997), Antigone’s Claim: Kinship Between Life and Death (2000), Precarious Life: The Powers of Mourning and Violence (2004), Giving An Account of Oneself (2005), and Frames of War: When Is Life Grievable? (2009).
