Ten years ago, a group of scholar-activists organized a series of conversations about law and economicclass. Building on “outsider” jurisprudence that has moved inequalities of race, gender, and sexuality from the margins to the center of law, the group proposed a jurisprudence of economic inequality. To foreground economic justice, the group sought to critique mainstream law and economics and to focus on the lives of poor and working class people.

Call for Papers: Dissents and Dispositions – Melbourne, Australia

Dissent and disposition are both relational. To dissent is to disagree and be at variance: to refuse an established order, to diverge from orthodoxy, to oppose, critique, quarrel and rearrange. If political dissent is commonly understood as speaking truth to power, how does this occur, or occur differently, now that power is increasingly dislocated from state forms, and the production of ‘truth’ by experts is itself subverted? How might law facilitate and energise, or suppress and silence such dissent?
