Professor Pruitt Speaks at SUNY Buffalo Law Conference

Professor Lisa R. Pruitt participated in the "Where Now? Moving Beyond Traditional Legal Geographies" conference on critical legal geography held at the Baldy Center for Law & Social Policy at SUNY Buffalo Law School on April 19. Professor Pruitt took part in a panel in which she responded to a paper by University of New Mexico Professor Melinda Harm Benson and presented her paper, "The Rural Socio-Spatial Lawscape:  Space Tames Law Tames Space."

Lisa R. Pruitt is a professor at UC Davis School of Law whose recent scholarship explores the legal relevance of rural spatiality, including how it inflects dimensions of gender, race, and ethnicity.  Pruitt's work also considers rural-urban difference in transnational and international contexts.
