CALL FOR PAPERS: Law on the Edge Conference

A Law on the Edge Conference is being held at the University of British Columbia from 1-4 July 2013. 

Information on the conference is available at http://www.law.ubc.ca/events/law_on_the_edge/#

Proposals must be submitted by 10 December 2012.


As the Call suggests:

The concept of living on the edge is not simply geo-political. While it is a politics of the edge, perpetually responding to and writing back at the centre, it is also a recognition that law itself constitutes boundaries and edges, creating sameness, difference, Others and allies. The conference planning emphasizes the following themes:
  • Law in times of crisis, tragedy & uncertainty;
  • Indigeneity, pluralism, and difference;
  • Law on the geopolitical edge;
  • Connections, departures, mobilities; and
  • New legal spaces on the edge.

Note that the organisers ‘encourage socioloegal and interdisciplinary contributions that explore law on the edge in a variety of spatio-temporal contexts, as well as other law and society scholarship.’
