Queer Migration Politics: Activist Rhetoric and Coalitional Possibilities

Karma Chavez
Karma Chavez's forthcoming book, Queer Migration Politics, suggests that neither the inclusionary politics of the mainstream US LGBT rights movement nor the utopian turn in some queer theory sufficiently capture the possibilities for queer politics in this moment. Drawing on the rhetoric of activists working at the various intersections and convergences of queer and immigration rights and justice, Chávez advocates that coalition is a productive alternative to both inclusionary and utopian approaches, even as coalitional...

Introduction to the Lecture Series

Donatella Alessandrini
feminists@law is pleased to launch the first in a series of online guest lectures that trace the (dis)continuities between the debate on immaterial labour and value which originated in Italy in the 1970s and the current debate on precarity/precariousness which has more recently emerged as a central concern of transnational feminist scholarship and activism (see 2007 special issue of Feminist Review). Reflecting on this intellectual/political trajectory acquires particular relevance today, with the crisis of social...

Communities of Grief: Surviving War in the Fiction of Ralph Salisbury

Miriam Brown Spiers
In That the People Might Live, Jace Weaver explains that “[i]n the case of Native Americans . . . grief can never be finally ‘abolished.’ Any Native scholarship or intellectual work must, however, take the ongoing and continual healing of this grief . . . as both a goal and a starting point. It must expand the definition of liberation to include survival. Natives engaged in literary production participate in this healing process” (34). Weaver...

Rhodium Chemistry, a Synthetical and Spectroscopic Study

Anthony William Addison
The reductant-catalysed synthesis of complexes of the type trans[RhL\(_4\)X\(_2\)]X.nH\(_2\)O has been used to prepare compounds with L=pyridine and substituted pyridines; X = Cl, Br, I and extended to include L = isoquinoline, pyrimidine, pyrazole and thiazole, as well as the bis­chelates with 1:10-phenanthroline and 2,2'-bipyridyl and a polymeric triamine complex with L = pyrazine. The exchange of chloride for bromide in the monoheterocyclic amine complexes is catalysed by ethanol; a five-hundred-fold rate increase is observed...

The Archers, The Radio, Violence against Women and Changing the World at Teatime

Harriet Samuels
Feminists working on Violence Against Women (VAW) have often been disappointed by the failure of law to produce profound change. Ill-informed and stereotypical views about VAW held by judges, lawyers, law enforcement officers, those in the media and the general public have undermined laws intended to tackle violence including domestic violence. As a consequence, VAW activists have sought new methods to shift the public discourse and facilitate the operation of the law. This article examines...

We Have a Plan: Feminist Plan to Combat Male Violence Against Women and Gender-Based Violence

Non Una Meno
Non Una Meno is an Italian trans-feminist, intersectional, anti-racist, anti-fascist, anti-capitalist political movement, independent of any party, which aims at the radical transformation of society starting from the fight against male and gender violence and against social hierarchies. It emerged in Italy in 2016 in the wake of the Argentine movement, Ni Una Menos, that campaigns against gender-based violence in all its forms. As an anti-systemic movement, it seeks to dictate a new political agenda...

Gender, Social Networks and Conflict Processes

Zoe Marks
War is an inherently social process, from the mobilization of new, armed organizations, to the relational aftershocks of violence affecting families and local communities. This essay synthesizes existing feminist research on dynamics of conflict and peacebuilding and brings a social network approach to understanding gendered patterns of intersectional inequality. It presents a framework for understanding how civil war affects social structures vis-à-vis personal support networks, and in turn how that can constrain or enable women’s...

Principled Pragmatism and the ‘Inclusion Project’: Implementing a Gender Perspective in Peace Agreements

Christine Bell & Kevin McNicholl
UN Security Council Resolution 1325 of 2000 provided that peace agreements should adopt a ‘gender perspective’. This commitment has been reiterated in women, peace and security resolutions since that time. This article uses a mixed qualitative and quantitative analysis to consider when and how peace agreements have adopted a gender perspective, using a new PA-X peace agreement database to analyse over 1500 peace and transition agreements from between 1990 and 2016. It goes further to...

Academic Reflection – Narratives of Justice and the Welfare State in Times of Austerity

Irene Gedalof
Considers the continuing relevance of chapter 2 of Nicola Lacey's Unspeakable Subjects (1998), on 'Theories of Justice and the Welfare State', to welfare reform within the contemporary neo-liberal state in Britain. Concludes that Lacey’s concern in that chapter, to open ideas of social justice to a recognition of collective differences and to challenge the public/private divide that stabilises and reinforces normative gender, is ever-more urgent in a political moment that refuses precisely these recognitions.

Hoktiwe (for L. Rain Prud’homme-Cranford)

Jeffery U. Darensbourg
This is a cento composed using extracted sentences from both the 1932 and 2019 published dictionaries of Ishakkoy, also known as Atakapan, a dormant Indigenous language from Louisiana and Texas. The corpus of texts in the language is small, however the published materials have hundreds of example sentences. These were extracted and used to make new compositions, presenting a model for corpus expansion and creative composition in an Indigenous language.

Comparison of two data capture methods and gender during clinical assessment in osteopathy: The impact on student/ tutor satisfaction ratings

Philip Bright & Ollie Bright
Background: Direct observation of students with patients is important for assessing clinical skills prior to professional registration. The mini-clinical evaluation exercise (mini-CEX) is established as part of a broad assessment profile. Differences between student and tutor satisfaction, when deploying this assessment through different methods, are not widely explored. This study explored gender bias in osteopathy students and tutors with satisfaction ratings, using the miniCEX via online and paper-based versions. Methods: An online mini-CEX was initially...

Skills for Employment in the Environment Profession: insights from Australia

Ian Thomas
Like other professionals, the skills expected to be exercised by those working in the professional environment and sustainability sector cover a wide range. There has been considerable discussion given to what this range embraces, and which are the more important of the skills. Also discussed has been the terminology associated with skills; i.e. core skills, generic skills, transferable skills, competencies, capabilities, and more. An electronic survey of environment professionals based in Australia provided the opportunity...
