(August 24, 2017): Call for Papers:
The Feminist Legal Theory Collaborative Research Network is seeking submissions for the Law and Society Annual Meeting, June 7-10, 2018 in Toronto, Canada. Submissions are due Sunday September 17. Submission link: https://form.jotformpro.com/pijip/2018fltcrn
Here is the call for papers:
We invite you to participate in the panels sponsored by the Feminist Legal Theory Collaborative Research Network at the Law and Society Annual Meeting in Toronto in June 2018. The Feminist Legal Theory CRN brings together law and society scholars across a range of fields who share an interest in feminist legal theory. Information about the Law and Society meeting is available at http://www.lawandsociety.org.
This year’s meeting invites us to explore LAW AT THE CROSSROADS/LE DROIT A LA CROISÉE DES CHEMINS. We seek in proposals that explore the application of feminist legal theory to this rich theme, across any substantive area.
If you would like to present a paper as part of a CRN panel, submit your 500 word abstract to https://form.jotformpro.com/pijip/2018fltcrn by the deadline of September 17, 2017.
Our goal is to stimulate focused discussion of papers on which scholars are currently working. While you may submit papers that are closer to publication, we are particularly eager to receive proposals for works-in-progress that are at an earlier stage and will benefit from the discussion that the panels will provide. We are also especially interested in hearing from junior scholars, and welcome submissions from scholars in VAPs, fellowship programs, non-tenure and pre-tenure positions.
The Planning Committee will group accepted papers into panels of four, based on subject matter. Each presentation should run roughly 10 minutes to allow ample time for discussion. A chair or discussant will provide feedback on each paper.
If you would like to propose a pre-formed panel of four papers with a chair and a discussant, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include that information in the appropriate box on the submission form for each of the papers as well.
In addition to traditional panels, we are open to some of the other formats that the LSA allows, including Author meets Reader, Salon, or Roundtable. If you have an idea that you think would work well in one of these formats, please email us at email@example.com. Please note that for roundtables, organizers must provide a 500-word summary of the topic and the contributions they expect the proposed participants to make. Please also note that LSA rules limit you to participating only once, either as a paper panelist or as a roundtable participant.
