REMINDER CFPs: AALS Property Law Section (Program Panel & WIP Session)

AALS

REMINDER: The AALS Section on Property Law is pleased to announce two Calls for Papers for the AALS 2019 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana: 

Call for Papers for AALS Section on Property Law: 
Property, Capitalism, and Structural Inequality 

Property Law Program at the AALS Annual Meeting 
Friday, January 4th, 2019 | 10:30am ‐ 12:15pm 
Property, Capitalism, and Structural Inequality 

With the rise of the individualized ‘gig economy’, the increasing reliance on financial actors in economic and urban development projects, the privatization of pension arrangements and attacks on unions, and the scandals of inequality and housing crises in many places around the world, it is hard not to recognize that the role of property in globalized forms of capitalism has been shifting over the past decades. These transformations manifest themselves legally in the forms of property, the identities of property holders - and relatedly, the patterns of social life - that are seen as legitimate and as worthy of protection and perpetuation. Newly empowered agents, governance mechanisms, and discourses provide the conceptual and material architecture that support these transformations. This panel attempts to contextualize those shifts by engaging with local, regional, and global instantiations of transnational patterns of property concentration and exclusion, and their justifications. 

Please submit your 300 – 400 word abstract submissions in Word or PDF to the Property Section Chair Priya Gupta at psgupta@swlaw.edu with “Submission: AALS PropertyCapitalism” in the subject line. Submissions must be received by August 31, 2018 EXTENDED: September 21, 2018. Preference will be given to abstracts of projects that are substantially complete and that offer novel scholarly insights. Untenured scholars in particular are encouraged to submit their work. 

Presenters will be responsible for paying their registration fee and hotel and travel expenses.
