Chesterfield Smith Professor Nancy E. Dowd published “Law, Culture, and Family: The Transformative Power of Culture and the Limits of Law,” in a Chicago-Kent Law Review symposium issue on Law and Cultural Conflict. In addition, her article, “From Genes, Marriage and Money to Nurture: Redefining Fatherhood,” to be published in the Cardozo Women’s Law Journal, was based on research presented to the Hastings Institute on the impact of genetics on concepts of parenthood, and is an outgrowth of research presented in her book, Redefining Fatherhood. She will present a paper on “Race as a Feminist Issue” at a Feminism and Legal Theory Workshop at Cornell University School of Law Sept. 5-6 along with scholars from the UK, and another paper at the University of Illinois College of Law Sept. 25 on the implications of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision on affirmative action.
