Charles H. Jones EQUALITY, DIGNITY AND HARM: THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF REGULATING AMERICAN CAMPUS ETHNOVIOLENCE 37 Wayne Law Review 1383 (Spring, 1991) There are many reasons why discourse about the constitutionality of regulating hate speech on college campuses is complex and largely indeterminate. Opponents and advocates of regulation tend to divide into two camps: civil libertarians and equalitarians. Those who believe strongly that the entry of government, in the form of the university, into... 1991  
Marion G. Crain FEMINIZING UNIONS: CHALLENGING THE GENDERED STRUCTURE OF WAGE LABOR 89 Michigan Law Review 1155 (March, 1991) Feminist scholars in increasing numbers are calling for a feminist agenda that challenges directly the economic, social, and political power imbalance between women and men.

Kathryn Abrams HEARING THE CALL OF STORIES 79 California Law Review 971 (July, 1991) In this Article, Professor Abrams examines the emergence of feminist narrative scholarship as a distinctive form of critical legal discourse.

Princeton: Princeton University Press. 1990. x + 206 pp. $29.95. The debate between the Critical Legal Studies movement and its critics has often seemed little more than a collection of arbitrary dismissals from both sides.

Kathryn Abrams LAWYERS AND SOCIAL CHANGE LAWBREAKING: CONFRONTING A PLURAL BAR 52 University of Pittsburgh Law Review 753 (Summer, 1991) Martha Minow teaches us that where you stand determines what you see on the question of social change lawbreaking.

Exploring these... 1991  
Kimberle Crenshaw MAPPING THE MARGINS: INTERSECTIONALITY, IDENTITY POLITICS, AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN OF COLOR 43 Stanford Law Review 1241 (July, 1991) Over the last two decades, women have organized against the almost routine violence that shapes their lives. Drawing from the strength of shared experience, women have recognized that the political demands of millions speak more powerfully than the pleas of a few isolated voices. This politicization in turn has transformed the way we understand... 1991  
Jean Stefancic , Richard Delgado OUTSIDER JURISPRUDENCE AND THE ELECTRONIC REVOLUTION: WILL TECHNOLOGY HELP OR HINDER THE CAUSE OF LAW REFORM? 52 Ohio State Law Journal 847 (1991) Legal scholarship today stands at a crossroad, its form and substance subject to transformation by two movements that are about to coverage. These movements, or forces, are (i) outsider jurisprudence-the writing of Critical Legal Studies scholars, feminists, and minorities of color; and (ii) the electronic transformation of media. Our first task... 1991  
Margaret Jane Radin, Frank Michelman PRAGMATIST AND POSTSTRUCTURALIST CRITICAL LEGAL PRACTICE 139 University of Pennsylvania Law Review 1019 (April, 1991) Academic legal thought might be more concentratedly self-critical than it usually is. We, its producers, could and should learn to be more habitually reflective --about the social, cultural, and political conditions in which we produce our thought; --about whether or how, in these conditions, it makes sense for us to cast our scholarship as... 1991

John Valery White REACTIONS TO OPPRESSION: JURISGENESIS IN THE JURISPATHIC STATE 100 Yale Law Journal 2727 (June, 1991) If there existed two legal orders with identical legal precepts and identical, predictable patterns of public force, they would nonetheless differ essentially in meaning if, in one of the orders, the precepts were universally venerated while in the other they were regarded by many as fundamentally unjust. -Robert Cover Traditional jurisprudence has... 1991

Peggie R. Smith SEPARATE IDENTITIES: BLACK WOMEN, WORK, AND TITLE VII 14 Harvard Women's Law Journal 21 (Spring, 1991) No other group in America has so had their identity socialized out of existence as have black women. We are rarely recognized as a group separate and distinct from black men, or as a present part of the larger group women in this culture . . . . When black people are talked about the focus tends to be on black men; and when women are talked about... 1991

Odeana R. Neal THE MAKING OF A LAW TEACHER 6 Berkeley Women's Law Journal 128 (1990-1991) At a meeting of the Northeast Corridor in October, 1990, Paulette Caldwell wondered aloud whether black women law teachers might be carrying on a cultural tradition of teaching. Her inquiry struck a chord with me that I hadn't heard in a long time. When I was very young, I wanted to be a teacher. I tutored younger children when I was in elementary... 1991

Matsuda VOICES OF AMERICA: ACCENT, ANTIDISCRIMINATION LAW, AND A JURISPRUDENCE FOR THE LAST RECONSTRUCTION 100 Yale Law Journal 1329 (March, 1991) Every person who reads this Article has an accent.

Duncan Kennedy A CULTURAL PLURALIST CASE FOR AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IN LEGAL ACADEMIA 1990 Duke Law Journal 705 (September, 1990) This Article is about affirmative action in legal academia. It argues for a large expansion of our current commitment to cultural diversity on the ground that law schools are political institutions. For that reason, they should abide by the general democratic principle that people should be represented in institutions that have power over their... 1990  
Robert A. Williams, Jr. ENCOUNTERS ON THE FRONTIERS OF INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS LAW: REDEFINING THE TERMS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES' SURVIVAL IN THE WORLD 1990 Duke Law Journal 660 (September, 1990) The global movement for human rights is redefining the world as we know it. Our contemporary ideas about lawonce so stable, so sure that law was made and remade according to the positivities of state sovereignty in the worldhave failed us. We are not prepared to deal with the sudden emergence of human values as reflected in a global discourse... 1990  
Scott Brewer INTRODUCTION: CHOOSING SIDES IN THE RACIAL CRITIQUES DEBATE 103 Harvard Law Review 1844 (June, 1990) The white man has made a fetish of intellect and worships the God of thought; the negro feels rather than thinks, experiences emotions directly rather than interprets them by roundabout and devious abstractions, and apprehends the outside world by means of intuitive perception instead of through a carefully built up system of logical analysis. . .... 1990  
Leslie G. Espinoza MASKS AND OTHER DISGUISES: EXPOSING LEGAL ACADEMIA 103 Harvard Law Review 1878 (June, 1990) Part of the burden of being twelve years old, at least in the California public schools of 1964, was having to write three career reports.' I dutifully produced three papers. The first, on being a secretary, was my pre-marriage hope. The second, on being an airline stewardess, was my wishful fantasizing. The third, on being a nurse, was my most... 1990  
Richard Delgado MINDSET AND METAPHOR 103 Harvard Law Review 1872 (June, 1990) Much of what Professor Randall Kennedy says in Racial Critiques of Legal Academia has caused puzzlement if not outright consternation among his colleagues of color. On reflection, I believe this is so not because of what he says; others have been exhorting us for years to buck up, stop blaming all our ills on racism, and give credit where credit is... 1990  
Mari J. Matsuda PRAGMATISM MODIFIED AND THE FALSE CONSCIOUSNESS PROBLEM 63 Southern California Law Review 1763 (September, 1990) It was Herc who saw possibilities of mixing his own formulas through re-mixing pre-recorded sound. In calling this Comment Pragmatism Modified, I allude to Catherine MacKinnon's Feminism Unmodified-her refusal to move her feminism over to accommodate Marxism, liberalism, or any other prefeminist theory. If feminism is not moving, perhaps pragmatism... 1990  
Gary Peller RACE CONSCIOUSNESS 1990 Duke Law Journal 758 (September, 1990) The entire civil rights struggle needs a new interpretation, a broader interpretation. We need to look at this civil rights thing from another anglefrom the inside as well as from the outside. To those of us whose philosophy is black nationalism, the only way you can get involved in the civil rights struggle is to give it a new interpretation. The... 1990  
Richard Delgado WHEN A STORY IS JUST A STORY: DOES VOICE REALLY MATTER? 76 Virginia Law Review 95 (February, 1990) A growing body of literature, much of it written by feminists and scholars of color, draws attention to the role of voice in legal scholarship. These scholars argue that some members of marginalized groups, by virtue of their marginal status, are able to tell stories different from the ones legal scholars usually hear. In addition, some of the... 1990
