Vanessa Munro gets additional funding for Scottish Feminist Judgments Project
In addition to the funding from The Clark Foundation to host the project workshop in April, the team have been awarded £4,900 from the University of Edinburgh’s Innovation Initiative Award Scheme. This will allow them to commission creative and artistic contributions on feminist judging from a poet, a creative writer, a theatre practitioner, a textile artist, a song-writer and a photographer. It is hoped that the exhibit of these creative pieces will spark discussions about alternative ways of conceptualizing law and judgment. Find out more about the project.
