It was recently pointed out to me that ALPS call for papers was recently released but the blogs have been slow to pick up the news. Here is my attempt to remedy that. We here at Land Use Profs are big fans of this conference. I personally have been to 3 of the 4 conferences so far and the last one in Minnesota may be the first time that all of us here at the blog were gathered in one place!
Here is the official call for papers:
The Association for Law, Property, & Society (ALPS) is a scholarly organization for those engaged in scholarship on all aspects of property law and policy including real, personal, intellectual, intangible, cultural, personal, and other forms of property. Its annual meeting brings together scholars from many disciplines to discuss their work and to foster dialogue among those working in property law, policy, and theory.
The 5th Annual Meeting of ALPS will be held in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law at Allard Hall. We welcome proposals for papers or panels in any area of property law & society scholarship.
Potential topics include:
• Aboriginal rights & title
• Eminent domain & regulatory takings
• Histories of property
• Housing/urban development/planning
• Inequalities of property
• Intellectual Property
• Property & civil rights
• Property law & economics
• Property & poverty
• Property transfers & risk
• Teaching property law
• Theories of property
Submissions may be of individual papers or of panels. Panel proposals may include a collection of paper presentations, roundtables, or book panels.
Submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 January 2014.
The standard length of each session will be 90 minutes and we expect sessions to include time for questions and discussion from the audience as well as presentation. Commentators are optional, but if included the papers need to be shortened to allow for audience questions and discussion.
If submitting a panel, submit individual paper abstracts as well as a panel abstract. Abstracts should be no more than 250 words.
