A conference workshop at the crack of dawn: at the end of November, I will be participating at this year’s Conference of the Law, Literature and Humanities Association of Australasia, and because it is a hybrid conference – part offline, part online – my presentation takes place in the early morning hours. Luckily, the conference organizers have chosen an inspiring theme and have been nothing but cheerful in all their correspondences so far. Exploring the Theme of „Law and Love (in and beyond Pandemic Times)“, my talk will focus on a much neglected issue in corporate culture and storytelling: the representation of women and the frequent absence of love and self-care from their narratives.
