New Scholarship about Rural Women and Rural Livelihoods

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Lisa R. Pruitt at UC Davis School of Law has followed up on her 2007 article, Toward a Feminist Theory of the Rural, with two forthcoming articles about rural women. Both draw on the discipline of critical geography to explore differences associated with rurality, the first from a theoretical perspective and the second as applied to the phenomenon of domestic violence. Gender, Geography & Rural Justice is forthcoming in the Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice and may be downloaded here. Place Matters: Domestic Abuse and Rural Difference will be published in the Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society, in a symposium celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Feminism and Legal Theory Project. Download it here.

Pruitt continues to publish about other intersections of law with rural livelihoods. Her Latina/os, Locality & Law in the Rural South is forthcoming in the Harvard Latino Law Review (2009), and The Forgotten Fifth: Rural Youth and Substance Abuse will be published in the Stanford Law and Policy Review (2009).
