Exciting news. The Association for Law, Property, & Society (ALPS) has put out a call for papers for its annual conference, scheduled to take place in Vancouver on May 2-3, 2014. I've always found the ALPS conference full of wonderful papers and friendly people. The ALPS site is http://www.alps.syr.edu. Here's the announcment from Doug Harris at the University of British Columbia:
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
Submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 January 2014. Submissions may be of individual papers or of panels. Panel proposals may include a collection of paper presentations, roundtables, or book panels. 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.
Confirmed Speakers include Joe Singer (Harvard) and Andre van der Walt (Stellenbosch).
We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver!
