  3. The Limits of Dignity at the Intersection of Autonomy, Identity and Affect: A Cautionary Tale From the Supreme Court of Canada.Caroline Hodes - 2020 - Feminist Legal Studies 28 (1):61-86.
    This survey of the Supreme Court of Canada’s pivotal anti-discrimination rulings over a 30-year period assesses the extent to which the shifting nature of the grounds approach and the Court’s conceptions of dignity together form part of a gendered system of enunciation at the intersection of autonomy, identity and affect. This article is written as a corrective to some of the author’s early optimism about the possibilities that dignity may offer in the context of constitutional equality rights cases and as (...)

    Stewart Motha: Archiving Sovereignty: Law, History, Violence: University of Michigan Press, USA, 2018, 224 Pp, £19.95 (Pbk), ISBN: 978-0472053865.Susanna Menis - 2020 - Feminist Legal Studies 28 (1):97-99.
    This is a review of the book Archiving Sovereignty by Stewart Motha. Typical of critical legal writing, the monograph challenges our conditioned perception about the sovereign State. As such, it provides us with access to an archive of sovereign violence created by the law. It is argued that judicial decisions sustain and recreate sovereign power by way of destruction of facts. The focus here is on states with imperial histories, taking as case studies several islands in the Indian ocean region.

    What the F: Pragrammatology and the Politics of Paradox in State of Alaska V. Wade.D. C. Mitchell - 2020 - Feminist Legal Studies 28 (1):21-38.
    This intervention queries whether subjecting feminist jurisprudence to a methodological transfiguration toward pragrammatology holds liberating potential for f as both a signifier and a subject to be read with lucidity and nuance in feminist justice claims. I examine feminist jurisprudence’s methodological challenges in the settler colonial context of Alaska with respect to the murders of Della Brown and Mindy Schloss. I advance my case for pragrammatology as a critical methodology for feminist jurisprudence by subjecting the case of Brown and Schloss (...)

    Settler Colonialism, Policing and Racial Terror: The Police Shooting of Loreal Tsingine.Sherene H. Razack - 2020 - Feminist Legal Studies 28 (1):1-20.
    On 27 March 2014, Loreal Tsingine, a 27-year-old Navajo woman was shot and killed by Austin Shipley, a white male police officer, also 27 years old, who said he was trying to apprehend her for a suspected shoplifting. Shipley was never charged, and the Department of Justice declined to investigate the Winslow police on the matter. This article explores Shipley’s killing of Loreal Tsingine and the police investigation of the shooting as quotidian events in settler colonial states. Police shootings of (...)

    Un-Coupling Family Law: The Legal Recognition and Protection of Adult Unions Outside of Conjugal Coupledom.Frederik Swennen - 2020 - Feminist Legal Studies 28 (1):39-60.
    This article sets out to research and resolve the conceptual lag between the family as defined and recognised in law and the multiplicity of queer constellations of ‘intimate citizenship’ in which families are actually done. The focus is on adult unions outside of conjugal coupledom. The family law practices, and awareness and expectations of adults in such unions were analysed through 21 interviews and the content analysis of 40 documents and were projected against the applicable legal mould. The article then (...)
