Posted Thursday, March 8, 2012
The School of Law hosted Mary Anne Case, professor of Law at the University of Chicago School of Law, as part of its Clason Speaker Series on March 6. Case delivered a lecture titled "'You're telling me it's wrong to do to the prisoners what the Army does to its own soldiers?' Gender Performance Requirements of the U.S. Military in the War on Islamic Terrorism."
During her lecture, Case discussed feminization within the military saying that “the use of feminization, as a way of disciplining and denigrating soldiers is quite common.”
The next Clason Speaker will be Zachary Kramer, Professor of Law at Arizona State's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. Kramer's lecture, titled "Of Meat and Manhood: Vegetarian Discrimination and Gender Stereotyping Under Title VII," will take place on April 10 in the Blake Law Center Commons at 12:00 noon.
