Work On! "Teaching gender"

(IntLawGrrls is pleased to welcome back alumna Lisa R. Pruitt, who contributes this Work On! guest post)

The Section on Women in Legal Education of the Association of American Law Schools, for which I have the honor of serving as Chair this year, is seeking panelists to share methods of teaching gender in “core courses” -- legal writing, torts, contracts, corporations, federal income tax, civil procedure, contracts, or criminal law, among others not traditionally understood to include gender -- at the AALS 2011 Annual Meeting to be held January 4 to 8 in San Francisco. The panel will also include a paper presentation by the winner of "Teaching Gender as a Core Value" competition.
In keeping with the overall meeting theme of "Core Values," our Section will focus on teaching gender issues as a "core value." This program will include a variety of perspectives and will explore ways gender issues can be successfully incorporated into law school teaching.
To be considered as a panelist, please submit a note of interest no later than next Wednesday, March 31, 2010, to Professor Danne Johnson, Oklahoma City University School of Law, at djohnson@okcu.edu. In addition to your c.v., please include a 2-paragraph description what you would discuss on the panel; that is, of the course that you teach and the methods that you use to teach gender.
Further details here.
