This conference examines the multiple ways in which law, as idea, statute, and juridical practice, was implicated in the formation of new conceptions of gender in the Japanese metropole and colonies from 1868 to the 1950s. Papers to be presented explore the complex and contested role of law, in its local, national, and international deployments, in the creation of gendered national and colonial subjects, male and female social roles, familial relations, and normative notions of sexuality. For more information, please see the conference website.
