Inherently Human was created in 2010 by postgraduate students working in the research cluster Gender & Law at Durham (GLAD), located in the School of Law, Durham University, UK.
It was established to support the work of scholars and activists whose work engages critically with the relationship between law, gender and sexuality. In this respect, it is unabashedly feminist in its focus, welcoming contributions from the spectrum of contemporary feminisms, as well as writing from the fields of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans legal studies, on any relevant substantive topic. The name of the weblog is drawn from a quotation from the US feminist activist and writer Robin Morgan: “Women are not inherently passive or peaceful. We’re not inherently anything but human.”
The blog’s editors all have a background researching law, gender & sexuality in the academic arena, and are based at the universities of Durham, Manchester and Newcastle.
Readers of the weblog are warmly invited to add their own comments to posts or submit a post themselves. Note that comments will not be published immediately as they must be approved by the editing team. To submit a post or to find out more information email us at laura.graham[@]durham.ac.uk
