Inherently Human: the GLAD Blog
(19 October 2010)
The GLAD Blog - Inherently Human - is an online forum dedicated to critical engagements with the politics of gender, sexuality and legal studies, run by a team drawn primarily from current and past postgraduate research students in GLAD.
Another blog on law, women, lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans people? Is it really needed? We think it is. Feminist and LGBT legal theorising and activism remains a minority concern within the academy and beyond. While other blogs related to this field of inquiry exist, we believe there is still far too little dialogue and debate in this area which has animated, frustrated and empowered those who recognise that power lies in gender and sexual identities.
Feel free to explore the site, and please participate where you can, either by responding to the views of others or submitting your own posts - our team of blog editors are always looking for new contributions, and we want this space to be a broad church for all those who care about the inequalities created by patriarchy and heteronormativity.
We look forward to receiving your comments, criticism and contributions as we play our little part in addressing the injustices of law, in the blogosphere!
