The Law and Society Association has issued a call for participation for its 2013 meeting in Boston (also known as "not Hawaii"). Proposals are due December 4. Here are the details:
Power, Privilege, and the Pursuit of Justice: Legal Challenges in Precarious Times
The meeting’s theme aims to incite debate on the challenges that will define law and society over the next decade. The financial crisis that struck in 2008 still rends the economy, politics, law, and society. How will polarized politics, rapid technological change, and global shifts in economic power affect law and society over the next years, domestically and transnationally?
To envision the future, we invite participants to extend and rethink law and society’s past insights to engage a new and changing context. The Program Committee has listed a series of sub-themes in featured sessions and other panels with the aim of spurring cross-cutting discussions.
Pretenured faculty and those planning to go on the teaching market in the next year might be especially interested in the LSA Early Career Workshop, to be held over two days immediately preceding the opening of the full conference. Details for the Workshop are here.
