The AALS Section on Law and Social Sciences welcomes proposals to present at the AALS Annual Meeting on a panel on Equality Law and Social Sciences to take place on Sat., Jan. 6 at 10:00—11:40 AM. This panel will focus broadly on the use of social sciences to identify new fronts in equality law. The interdisciplinary discussion will focus on revealing and remedying disparities, inequities, and inequalities in law and society in reference to race, gender, sexuality, class, immigration, disability, age, geography, family, or other factors. We welcome presentations that are U.S.-focused or comparative in scope and those that draw on diverse methodologies in social sciences. Proposals may also engage theoretical or methodological questions as part of the broader discussion about identifying and remedying social inequalities. We particularly welcome proposals from emerging or pre-tenure scholars.
