Project Title: 
Conference on Feminist Jurisprudence in Shanghai
Project Abstract: 
Feminist jurisprudence is a well-developed field of legal analysis and research in the United States and a rapidly developing area in many other countries, including Korea and Japan, but it is much less prominent as a discipline in the People’s Republic of China. The goal of the conference is to bring together many American legal theorists who played a role in the development of feminist jurisprudence with scholars of legal theory in Asia, particularly China, Korea, and Japan. The presentations will be included in an edited volume to be published in Chinese. The conference will be co-sponsored by the Dorothea S. Clarke Program in Feminist Jurisprudence at the Cornell Law School and the Fudan University Law School in Shanghai. It will be the first conference held after establishment of a partnership between Cornell and Fudan, the preeminent law school in Shanghai. It will also allow the organizers to develop our ongoing partnership with Ewha Women’s University Law School in Seoul, Korea.
