Join UTS for an evening seminar presented by Professor Jennifer Nedelsky and hosted by UTS Faculty of Law’s Feminist Legal Research Group.

Professor Nedelsky’s seminar will present the main arguments from her co-authored work: (Part)-Time for All: New Norms to Fix the Crisis in Work and Care. The project addresses three critical problems that arise out of dysfunctional norms of work and care: unsustainable stress on families, persistent inequality for women and others who do care work, and policy makers who are ignorant about the care work that life requires.

The seminar will also explore the relation between norms, policy and law, in particular the generation of new norms and the kinds of law and policy that would facilitate the norm transformation. Professor Nedelsky will explore the details of what new, just and equal norms of care would look like.

Jennifer Nedelsky is Professorial Fellow at the Institute for Social Justice (ACU) and Professor of Law and Political Science and the Unversity of Toronto. Click here for more information on this seminar
