Beyond Conception: Legal Determinations Of Filiation In The Context Of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Roxanne Mykitiuk Oct 2001

Beyond Conception: Legal Determinations Of Filiation In The Context Of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Roxanne Mykitiuk

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

This article argues that legal determinations of filiation are normative ideological constructions about how societal relations between parents and children should be ordered. They am based upon particular understandings of the relationship between biological and social facts and, as this article demonstrates, operate to create an asymmetrical relationship between the categories between paternity and maternity I suggest that fairly recent developments in reproductive and genetic filiation have been made and offer the potential for an expanded understanding of relatedness or kinship which does not take the two-parent-one of each sex-model of the family as its normative form. While the examples ...

Incest In A Thousdand Acres: Cheap Trick Or Feminist Re-Vision, Susan Ayres Oct 2001

Incest In A Thousdand Acres: Cheap Trick Or Feminist Re-Vision, Susan Ayres

Faculty Scholarship

This article ultimately argues that the plot changes are not a cheap trick intended to manipulate the reader's emotions, but a feminist re-vision, which succeeds or not depending on the reader's critical feminist perspective. Thus, Part Two delineates several feminist stances, such as liberal feminism, radical feminism, social feminism, and postmodern feminism, and summarizes the plot changes Smiley has imposed on King Lear. Part Three considers one major plot change - the longing for the mother - in terms of patriarchy's suppression of a maternal genealogy and feminine language. This part argues that the novel successfully demonstrates the difficulty ...

The Empire Of The Lone Mother: Parental Rights, Child Welfare Law, And State Restructuring, Hester Lessard Oct 2001

The Empire Of The Lone Mother: Parental Rights, Child Welfare Law, And State Restructuring, Hester Lessard

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

This article uses the Supreme Court of Canada's decision in G.(J.) v. New Brunswick to frame a discussion of the historical and ideological character of Canadian child welfare regimes on the nature and experience of women’s citizenship within the liberal political order and, in particular, within the current neo-liberal restructuring of welfare provision. The article also analyzes traditional understandings of the political character of child welfare in terms of state intervention and non-intervention, by placing the state ordering of parent-child relations in the context of larger issues of colonialism, gendered parenting discourses, and the linkage between child ...

Deconstructing Family: A Critique Of The American Law Institute's "Domestic Partners" Proposal, Lynn D. Wardle Sep 2001

Deconstructing Family: A Critique Of The American Law Institute's "Domestic Partners" Proposal, Lynn D. Wardle

BYU Law Review

In promulgating the Principles of the Law of Family Dissolution: Analysis and Recommendations ("Family Dissolution Principles"), the American Law Institute (ALI) proposes an extensive set of new rules to apply in proceedings relating to family dissolution. One of the major policy changes in family law proposed by the Family Dissolution Principles is the expansion of the scope of relationships that are treated as family relations. Many relationships that in the past have been called "alternative relationships" (alternative to family relationships) are treated in the ALI Principles as equal to and given the same legal protections, benefits, rights, and remedies as ...

Exporting And Importing Domestic Partnerships: Some Conflict-Of-Laws Questions And Concerns, Ralph U. Whitten

BYU Law Review

This article is about conflicts of laws questions relating to domestic partnerships. The article points out that since there will be states that recognize domestic partnerships because the American Law Institute has expressed approval of domestic partnerships, there will be conflict of laws problems if not all states recognize it. The purpose of this article is to describe some of the conflicts issues that arise when parties to domestic partnerships have, or develop, contacts with more than one state. The article does so by explaining the two broad areas in which these conflicts will arise and by showing that there ...
