From Our Member, Law and Society Trust (LST), Sri Lanka – LST Review – Queering the Law

FORUM-ASIA’s member Law and Society Trust (LST) published its joint issue for December 2016 (Vol 27 – Issue 341), and is dedicated to the memory of Priyadarshini Thangarajah (1982-2015), a feminist researcher, activist and lawyer.

‘Exploring a question that informed Priya’s intellectual and activist journey, this Joint Issue inspired by queer theory aims to problematize the heteronormative and heteropatriarchal framework of law in achieving equity, equality and justice. While many of the contributions in this issue critique heteronormativity, it is important to note that queerness allows for a much broader critique of power. As cited by Vijay Nagaraj and Shermal Wijewardene, ‘queering our approach to law… will reveal other questions and issues that are not just confined to being anti-normative or limited to sex/gender/sexuality politics alone, and can become a ‘political and theoretical strategy’ (Jagose, 2015).’
