The AALS Section on Women in Legal Education will hold a program, New Voices in Gender Studies, during the AALS 2014 Annual Meeting in New York City. They are soliciting papers now. From the CFP:
Submissions should be of scholarship relating to: (1) women in legal education; (2) any aspect of women’s or men’s relationship to the law; or (3) gender, sexuality and the law. There is a maximum 30,000 word limit (inclusive of footnotes) for the submission. Since this is a paper presentation opportunity, and not one for publication, submitted papers can be committed for publication prior to their submission, but cannot be actually in print prior to their submission. Each professor may submit only one paper for consideration.
Full-time faculty members of AALS member and fee-paid law schools, who have been teaching seven (7) or fewer years as of August 1, 2013, are eligible to submit papers. Foreign, visiting (and not full-time on a different faculty) and adjunct faculty members, graduate students, and fellows are not eligible. Faculty members who have presented their papers during previous New Voices in Gender Studies programs are also ineligible.
Papers will be reviewed anonymously. The manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter with the author’s name and contact information. The manuscript itself, including title page and footnotes, must not contain any references that identify the author or the author’s school. The submitting author is responsible for taking any steps necessary to redact self-identifying text or footnotes.
To be considered, papers must be submitted electronically to Professor Wendy Greene, Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law, at [email protected]. The deadline for submission is Friday, August 30, 2013. Authors of selected papers will be notified by September 28, 2013. Call for Paper participants will also be responsible for paying their annual meeting registration fee and travel expenses.
Papers will be selected after review by a sub-committee composed of Section on Women in Legal Education members. This is a wonderful showcase for junior scholars’ work on gender and women’s issues; therefore, if you have been teaching for seven (7) or fewer years, please consider submitting a paper.Any inquiries about the Call for Papers should be submitted to: Professor Wendy Greene, Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law, 205. 726. 2419 or [email protected]
