Deborah Widiss (Indiana) sends word of the AALS Section on Employment Discrimination Law – Call for Papers for Panel on “Title VII at 50: Looking Forward, Looking Back”:
The AALS Section on Employment Discrimination invites submissions for participation in a panel at the annual conference (Jan. 2-5, 2014) focused on Title VII’s fiftieth anniversary. The panel will bring together key leaders who helped shape Title VII’s early implementation, a current EEOC commissioner, and scholars to use this milestone year as an opportunity for looking both forward and backward at Title VII’s impact and its potential. Confirmed panelists include Alfred Blumrosen, Chai Feldblum, Trina Jones, and Bill Robinson. One additional panelist will be selected from the call-for-papers; junior scholars are particularly encouraged to submit proposals. Presenters may opt to publish their papers in the Employee Rights and Employment Policy Journal.
The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2013. More details are available at this AALS call for papers, or contact Deborah directly.
