CALL FOR PAPERS EXTENDED: Mediterranean Legal Hybridity Symposium

The deadline for proposals to the ‘Mediterranean Legal Hybridity' symposium has been extended to Monday, 5 April 2010.

The symposium will begin on the afternoon of Friday, 11 June 2010 with a plenary speech, but most papers will be presented on Saturday, 12 June 2010. Our primary theme is the investigation of legal and normative diversity across the Mediterranean. A secondary theme is the establishment of dialogue between comparative lawyers and other disciplines.

While our primary focus is on the region, we will consider any proposals on the mixtures and movements of state laws and other norms. Among others, anthropologists, geographers, historians, and sociologists are all encouraged to participate.

An excursion into Valletta or Mdina is also being planned for Sunday, 13 June 2010.

Those interested in making a presentation (twenty minutes long) should email Dr Seán Patrick Donlan (sean.donlan@ul.ie) with a short (250 word) proposal. The conference fee is €100.

Details on the symposium venue and information on accommodation will be posted next week.
