CALL FOR PAPERS: New Voices in Comparative Law
AMERICAN SOCIETY OF COMPARATIVE LAW
YOUNGER COMPARATIVISTS COMMITTEE
New Voices in Comparative Law
The Younger Comparativists Committee of the American Society of Comparative Law is pleased to invite submissions for its second annual conference, to be held on April 18-19, 2013, at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, Indiana. The purpose of the conference is to highlight, develop, and promote the scholarship of new and younger comparativists.
Submissions will be accepted on any subject in public or private comparative law from scholars who have been engaged as law teachers, lecturers, fellows, or another academic capacity for no more than ten years as of June 30, 2013. We will also accept submissions from graduate students enrolled in master’s or doctoral programs.
Scholars may make individual or co-authored submissions. The conference’s Program Committee will assign individual and co-authored submissions to thematic panels according to subject area. Proposals for fully formed panels will also be accepted.
To submit an entry, scholars should email an attachment in Microsoft Word or PDF containing an abstract of no more than 750 words no later than November 4, 2012, to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts should reflect original research that will not yet have been published, though may have been accepted for publication, by the time of the conference. Abstracts should also include the author’s name, title of the paper, institutional affiliation, contact information, as well as the author’s certification that she/he qualifies as a younger scholar. Graduate students should identify themselves as such.
Panels will be announced no later than December 16, 2012. There is no cost to register for the conference but participants are responsible for securing their own funding for travel, lodging and other incidental expenses.
The Younger Comparativists Committee gratefully acknowledges the support of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. The Younger Comparativists Committee also extends special thanks to Shawn Boyne and Mohamed Arafa for co-chairing the Program Committee.
