Silences and Sexual Diversity: Difference, Comfort and Emulation in First Year Law Teaching

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Sexuality and sexual affinity, just like the air we breathe, are everywhere and yet nowhere in the Australian law teaching space, whether online or face to face. Like the air they are omnipresent. Like the air they are nowhere: rarely recognised, invisible because taken-for-granted or erased because expression of an awareness of norms and difference is perceived as unprofessional in environments where there is increasing reliance on trigger warnings of uncertain effectiveness and the institutionalisation of ‘vulnerability’.
