Queer Law in Emotional Times

Queer Law in Emotional Times

The Sydney Institute of Criminology will host a conversation between Dr Senthorun Raj (Keele University) and readers of his new book, Feeling Queer Jurisprudence: Injury, Intimacy, Identity (Routledge, 2020).

Drawing on emotions, queer theory, and case law, Feeling Queer Jurisprudence explores how LGBT rights have been made possible, and also circumscribed, by progressive legal interventions. This book catalogues a range of cases from Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom to unpack how emotion shapes the decriminalisation of homosexuality, hate crime interventions, anti-discrimination measures, refugee protection, and marriage equality. This book shows that reading jurisprudence through emotions can make space in law to affirm, rather than disavow, intimacies and identities that queer conventional ideas about “LGBT progress”, without having to abandon legal pursuits to protect LGBT people.

Speakers include Professor Kane Race (University of Sydney), Dr Renata Grossi (UTS), and Anna Brown (CEO, Equality Australia).
