Professor Lu-in Wang has published Negotiating the Situation: The Reasonable Person in Context
, 14 Lewis & Clark L. Rev. 1285 (2010). Her article appears in a symposium issue of the Law Review, entitled "Who Is the Reasonable Person?" According to an abstract, Professor Wang's article "argues that our understanding of the reasonable person in economic transactions should take into account an individual’s race, gender, or other group-based identity characteristics—not necessarily because persons differ on account of those characteristics, but because of how those characteristics influence the situations a person must negotiate."
