Professor Tanya Cooper Presents "Legal Ethnographies: Recentering Voices (Epistemologies from) in the Margins" -- Global Meeting on Law and Society
Professor Tanya Asim Cooper presented "Legal Ethnographies: Recentering Voices (Epistemologies from) in the Margins" at the 7th Global Meeting on Law and Society. The conference, titled "Rage, Reckoning, & Remedy," was held at ISCTE University Institute of Lisbon on July 13-16.
From the conference program:
The epidemics of sexism, racism, settler colonialism, ableism, nationalism, cisnormativity, and straight supremacy continue to define the ways in which we advocate for legal reforms locally and globally. This panel recenters the voices of marginalized communities by employing legal ethnographic methodologies to move beyond traditional liberal reforms to center the community’s epistemologies. The three panelists engage in three different ethnographic centered methodologies. Each panelist will discuss their ethnographic methodologies that lead to arguments for transformative change. Panelists will discuss the disjunctures that inevitably arise in ethnographic work including how to center the participant’s voice.
