The AALS Section on Legal History is pleased to announce a call for papers for its section program, which will be held during the 2020 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. The program is entitled “A Century of Women’s Suffrage.”
2020 marks one hundred years since the 19th Amendment was ratified, ushering in the last century of women’s suffrage in the United States. This program will bring together scholars writing on the history of women’s suffrage, broadly construed. Submissions should relate to any aspect of women’s suffrage, including exploring the suffrage movement that culminated in the 19th Amendment, addressing how the 19th Amendment affected political parties or politics in the subsequent century, and comparing the women’s suffrage movement to analogous social movements.
Eligibility and Submission Requirements: This Call for Papers is open to all faculty members from AALS member schools. Submissions should not exceed 30,000 words, including footnotes. You may submit a CV as well, but are not required to do so.
Submission Process: To be considered for participation as a panelist, please email a copy of your submission to Evan Zoldan at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31, 2019. Participants selected by the Legal History section executive committee will be notified by September 1, 2019.
Questions: If you have any questions about the panel, please contact Evan Zoldan at email@example.com. A link to the CFP can be found on the AALS website, here: https://am.aals.org/proposals/section-calls-for-papers/
