2018 Immigration Law Scholars and Teachers Workshop at Drexel Law School, May 24-26, 2018
A major focus of the biennial Immigration Law Scholars and Teachers Workshop is the opportunity for immigration scholars to share scholarship in progress. Opportunities will be available to receive feedback from colleagues on draft papers and on ideas in the formative stage during incubator sessions.
If you are interested in presenting a work-in-progress (WIP) or an incubator idea, or in serving as a commentator, please fill out this google form by Friday, March 23.
(If you have trouble clicking on the link, you can also find the form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd0xQqAQpm2aMDT6H2lPKazzgXNsSiVnjOvDK_QysaRmK5Oig/formResponse)
Your draft paper for a WIP session (50 pages maximum) or a brief description of your incubator idea (3 pages maximum) will be due by Friday, April 27. You will receive further instructions about how to upload your paper to the password-protected conference website closer to the date.
After the committee receives submissions in response to this call for papers, the committee will assign commentator(s) for each work in progress based on shared scholarship interests. The date and time for each work in progress session will be posted on the conference website in early May.
We hope to have room for all who express interest in presenting a work in progress. If we face any constraints, we will give priority to junior scholars.
The members of the Works in Progress committee for the Workshop are: Amanda Frost (American); Denise Gilman (Texas); and Jaya Ramji-Nogales (Temple). If you have any questions, feel free to contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
