    Reproducing Whiteness: Feminist Genres, Legal Subjectivity and the Post-Racial Dystopia of The Handmaid’s Tale.Karen Crawley - 2018 - Law and Critique 29 (3):333-358.
    This article investigates the critical potential of a contemporary dystopia, The Handmaid’s Tale, a U.S. television series adapted from a popular novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. The text is widely understood as a feminist intervention that speaks to ongoing struggles against gender oppression, but in this article I consider the invitations that the show offers its viewers in treating race the way that it does, and consider what it means to refuse these invitations in pursuit of a critical feminist (...)

    Forms of Authority Beyond the Neoliberal State: Sovereignty, Politics and Aesthetics.Chris Butler & Karen Crawley - 2018 - Law and Critique 29 (3):265-270.

The papers in this collection were first presented at (...)
