Northwestern's fifth annual queer and trans studies conference, Sexing the Law: Love as/at the Limit, will take place from May 25-27, 2012. With keynote speakers Andrea J. Ritchie and Theodore W. Jennings and roundtable speakers from the Transformative Justice Law Project, this conference is shaping up to be the best Queertopia! yet! This year's theme encourages invites scholars, artists and activists from all disciplines to sex the law; that is, to explore the violent / erotic tension between sexuality and “law” in the broadest sense possible. Interpret “law” as juridical line, principle, system, boundary, limit, totality, rule, norm, more, threshold, the possible. Interpret “sex” as to create, to make love (to), to caress, to make come, to scandalize, to say “yes” to, to say “no” to, to subvert, to protest, to transform; to prove, to imagine and to embody that things could be otherwise.
