Working on a project involving women & crime,
self-defense and/or the role of emotions in Criminal Law? CrimProf Leslie Garfield of Pace Law School looking
for co-panelists for a panel tentatively entitled, "Crime, Emotions and
the Law," to be held at the the Law & Society Annual Meeting to be
held in Montreal, Canada, May 29-June 1, 2008.
CrimProf Garfield is interested in hearing from anyone who is writing in any of these areas (or related areas) who would like to present at the conference. CrimProf Garfield will organize into panels as many people as respond to this call for presenters. Scholars of all levels of seniority and projects at all stages of development are welcome.
There is no publication requirement (or pre-arranged article placement) associated with the conference. Panel participants are expected to exchange drafts of their papers at least one month prior to the conference. Panel participants (or their home institutions, if possible) pay their own way, because this is not an externally-funded conference.
If your scholarly interests are connected even generally to the proposed panel, and you would be interested in participating at the Law & Society 2008 meeting, please contact CrimProf Garfield at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15, 2007 . At this point, all we need is the intended participant's name, institutional affiliation, and contact information; the paper's working title; and a 3-4 sentence description of the paper's general subject.
