CFP: 12th Annual Conference, Association of the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities, Law School, Suffolk University, April 3-4, 2009.
The Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities is an organization of scholars engaged in interdisciplinary, humanistically oriented legal scholarship. The Association brings together a wide range of people engaged in scholarship on legal history, legal theory and jurisprudence, law and cultural studies, law and literature, law and the performing arts, and legal hermeneutics. We want to encourage dialogue across and among these fields about issues of interpretation, identity, and values, about authority, obligation, and justice, and about law's place in culture. We will be accepting proposals for panels, papers, and volunteers for chairs and discussants from July 1st until October 15th 2008. We welcome submissions on any law, culture and humanities subject. Examples of panel topics from our last conference include: Imagining Rights in the Era of Globalization; The Child as a Legal Subject; Law and Love; The Color of Justice; The Cultural Lives of the Judiciary; Law and the Sacred; E.M. Forster and the Question of Social Justice; Thinking about Places and Spaces; Feminism v. Feminism: Conceptions of Justice in Transnational Criminal Law; South African Dignity Jurisprudence; Film as Legal Text; Event, Rebellion, and Constitution: Political Imagination and Resistant Sovereignties in the Americas, 1615-2005. We invite scholars with interests across the range of areas in Law, Culture and the Humanities to organize panels, performance pieces, screenings, or to submit proposals for individual paper presentations.
