About the speaker
Speaking truth to power: challenging legal injustice through an artistic lens
Sharon Cowan is the Professor of Feminist and Queer Legal Studies in the Law School at Edinburgh University. She teaches criminal law, gender, sexuality and law, and refugee law, and is passionate about feminist theory and activism, feminist pedagogy and cycling. She is currently involved in a project working with trans people, talking about their experiences of equality and discrimination. For the last two years, along with Chloë Kennedy, Vanessa Munro and Jill Kennedy-McNeill, she has been coordinating the Scottish Feminist Judgments Project. This has been an incredibly powerful and enriching experience and has often been the thing that has made her want to get out of bed in the morning.
Chloë Kennedy is Senior Lecturer in Criminal Law at the University of Edinburgh School of Law. Her teaching and research interests include criminal law, legal theory, legal history, law and religion, and law and gender. In addition to co-ordinating the Scottish Feminist Judgments Project, Chloë is working on a critical history of identity deception. One of the aims of this project is to try to ensure that this area of law develops in a just and fair way.

BRINGING BROSS BAGELS TO EDINBURGH. Instead of complaining about the lack of bagels this country has to offer – founder Larah Bross decided to do something about it. Working closely with local initiative Breadshare, Bross Bagels aims to bring authentic bagels to Edinburgh and beyond. Our rustic bagels are available to buy by the dozen or filled with some NY deli inspired fillings from our shop in Portobello and Leith.
