Call For Papers: AALS Section On Aging 2021 Annual Meeting program, co-sponsored by the Sections on Civil Rights, Disability Law, Family & Juvenile Law, Minority Groups, Poverty, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Issues, Trusts and Estates, and Women in Legal Education
Intersectionality, Aging, and the Law
The AALS Section on Aging will focus its 2021 annual meeting program on intersectionality and aging. We are interested in participants who will address this subject from numerous perspectives. Potential topics include gray divorce, incarceration, elder abuse (physical or financial), disparities in wealth, health, housing, and planning based on race or gender or gender identity, age and disability discrimination, and other topics. The conception of the program is broad, and we are exploring publication options.
If you are interested in participating, please send a 400-600 word description of what you'd like to discuss. Submissions should be sent to Professor Naomi Cahn, firstname.lastname@example.org, by June 2, 2020, and the author[s] of the selected paper(s) will be notified by July 1, 2020.
The Call for Paper presenters will be responsible for paying their registration fee and hotel and travel expenses. Please note that AALS anticipates that the Annual Meeting will go forward (https://am.aals.org/), and the theme is The Power of Words.
