The measure of injury : race, gender, and tort law by Martha Chamallas( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
"Citizenship is generally viewed as the most desired legal status an individual can attain, invoking the belief that citizens hold full inclusion in a society, and can exercise and be protected by the Constitution. Yet this membership has historically been exclusive and illusive for many, and in Citizenship and its Exclusions, Ediberto Roman provides a sweeping, interdisciplinary analysis of citizenship's contradictions." "Roman offers an exploration of citizenship that spans from antiquity to the present, and crosses disciplines from history to political philosophy to law, including constitutional and critical race theories. Beginning with Greek and Roman writings on citizenship, he moves on to late-medieval and Renaissance Europe, then early Modern Western law. His analysis culminates with an explanation of how past precedents have influenced U.S. law and policy regulating the citizenship status of indigenous and territorial island people, as well as how different levels of membership have created a de facto subordinate citizenship status for many members of American society, often lumped together as the "underclass."" ""What kind of harms matter, and why? Steeped in the history of American tort law, Martha Chamallas and Jennifer B. Wriggins demonstrate how attitudes about race and gender run through the harms recognized--and not recognized--by American law. Along the way, this fine book sheds light on deliberate and unconscious stereotyping, the shifting treatments of workplace and family injuries, the influence of social movements on law and public attitudes, and alternative approaches to harms, causation, and damages. This book is brimming with insights about how societies do and should express what matters in assigning liability for human pain and loss.""

The construction of legal credibility for rape survivors who are international students by Angela Tu( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
According to scholar Carol Bohmer, one out of four female students is a survivor of rape. This disturbing statistic is reflective of the prevalent US rape culture. Given the overwhelming influence of US rape culture within the legal system and on campuses, this thesis analyzes the ways the US legal system polices international student survivors of rape in higher education. Specifically, how do US legal institutions police or protect international survivors given their statuses as survivors, students, non-Americans and sometimes non-white? Within the context of my research, I define the act of disciplining and regulation as social norms and expectations that govern an individual’s conduct, behavior and appearance, based on Foucault’s theory of biopolitics. Thus, even in situations where survivors win their cases, a level of regulation still exists because the government imagines the ideal survivor who is deserving of legal protection. In this study, I examined two cases: Liu v. Striuli and Commonwealth v. Khan for the purpose of analyzing cultural biases or norms that appear explicitly and implicitly within the legal texts. Such evidence of bias bolsters my argument that besides victim blaming, survivor disciplining still persists in even well-meaning institutions. Near the end of each chapter and in the final chapter of my thesis, I present recommendations for the US legal system that could lessen existing survivor policing and increase survivor’s well-being
