Hall Fellows Named at Indiana Law

The Center for Law, Society, and Culture at the Indiana University-Bloomington’s Maurer School of Law has announced the Jerome Hall Postdoctoral Fellows for 2011-2012.  Leila Kawar “is interested in the relationship between legality and the politics of migration. Focusing on the role of the legal profession and juridical expertise, she studies migration and citizenship laws, at both the national and international levels, as fields of knowledge production.”  Katherine Turk “researches the mainstreaming of postwar American feminism and the challenges of defining and creating sex equality amidst fractious interest group politics, legal and bureaucratic institutions, diverse populations of workers, and seismic shifts in American political economy.”  She is the author of “Out of the Revolution, Into the Mainstream: Employment Activism in the NOW Sears Campaign and the Growing Pains of Liberal Feminism,” Journal of American History 97 (September 2010) and will be on leave from her position as Assistant Professor of History at the University of Texas at Dallas.
