Conversations in Feminism, Law, and Religion

Rev. Elizabeth Eaton, presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, will deliver the keynote address for this groundbreaking two-day conference that continues a conversation begun by feminist legal scholars and theologians and marked by the recent publication of Feminism, Law, and Religion (Ashgate Press 2013, Failinger, Schiltz and Stabile, eds.) about the role that theology and religious law from diverse religions can play in the construction and critique of just law throughout the world. The Jay Phillips Center is cosponsoring this event in collaboration with the University of St. Thomas College of Arts and Sciences, School of Law, LuAnn Dummer Center for Women, Muslim-Christian Dialogue Center, Siena Symposium for Women, Family, and Culture, and the Terrence J. Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy.
