Law researcher secures Hallsworth Conference Funding
This announces a successful application for Hallsworth Conference Funding.
A cross faculty application has been successful in securing Hallsworth Conference Funding. This funding aims to fund landmark events that draw together a wide network of international researchers tackling major issues that are likely to have a lasting and significant research impact.
Principle Investigator Dr Luke Graham (Lecturer in Public Law and Human Rights) and Co-investigator Dr Claudia Henninger (Lecturer in Fashion Marketing & Management) will work on a conference project titled ‘A New Right to Adequate Clothing’.
Our systems of producing, distributing, using, and disposing of clothing are vast and impactful. The vastness of these issues means that clothing is a topic which speaks to, and cuts across, many disciplines. The conference will bring together experts and stakeholders from across disciplines and fields to focus on the challenges posed by clothing and the potential for both 1) these challenges to inform the meaning of the forgotten right to adequate clothing and 2) the right to adequate clothing to respond to these challenges.
Further details about the conference and a call for papers will be distributed in due course.
