Writing about Race? Justice? Translation?
Here are three CFPs that might be of interest, especially for work that is interdisciplinary.
The interdisciplinary journal, University of Florida Journal of Law and Public Policy, is accepting submissions for December 2011 special edition on race, deadline August 28. "Our goal is to inform discussions of race in the public policy arena by highlighting key legal challenges facing ethnic and racial minorities. We are seeking original works that provide thought provoking commentary on issues of race and awaken the consciousness of readers." Submissions to EIC Yvette Sturkes, ysturkes AT ufl.edu.
The third annual Law & Literature Conference at John Jay, CUNY, scheduled for March 2012 is soliciting submissions. The theme is The Idea of Justice, after Amartya Sen's book of the same name and Nobel Prize in Economics winner Sen will be the keynote speaker. Abstract deadline is January 2012. Conference website here, updates forthcoming. Other law and literature CFPs are available from the wonderful Christine Corcos over at Law & Humanities Blog.
The annual meeting of philoSOPHIA, known for its new journal of the same name, will be in April 2012 at Miami University in Ohio. The conference "will have as its theme ‘Translation,’ broadly conceived, taking the work of translation to include translating across disciplines, genres, traditions, texts, historical epochs, and languages." Submissions of abstracts deadline is December 1, 2010. More information here.
