Dr Antu Sorainen visiting Keele Law School, hosted by Professor Marie-Andrée Jacob, 22.11.-19.12. 2017

During her visit Antu and Marie-Andree will be working on questions that emerged from their collaboration on the CoreKin project and will focus on wills and inheritance in sexually marginalised groups and contrasting and reimagining margins of kinship.

The main aim is to explore the legal imaginations and conceptualisations of kinship, care and support relations used in the past and present in inheritance and family law, and to contrast divergent legislations to re-imagine novel ways in order to reroute actual, “real” care configurations to the legal sphere.

Together they will explore whether, and how, these conceptual and methodological frameworks have the potential to be introduced successfully into socio-legal studies, feminist legal studies and queer legal studies in other areas concerning kinship, sexuality and gender.

Antu will give a workshop talk in Keele Law School on 6th December 2017.
