Spring 2023 Reading Group

Current Topics in the Law of Work and Gender

Prerequisite: None

Exam Type: No Exam

This reading group will explore the subjects of work and gender, their relationship, and how the law regulates their intersection. We will examine how work and gender mutually constitute each other, and how the law can and should mediate this, paying special attention to changing ideas of sex and gender. Through court cases and scholarship from law and related fields, we will consider these questions through a range of topics, including occupational segregation, sexual orientation, gender identity, sexual harassment, pregnancy, and caregiving.

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: 2/1, 2/15, 3/1, 3/22, 4/5, 4/19
