From the editors at the Pitt Law Review:
The University of Pittsburgh Law Review is seeking submissions for a symposium in honor of the late Derrick A. Bell, to be hosted on March 27-28, 2014. The focus of the symposium is to honor the memory of Professor Bell through the exchange of ideas on the future of critical race theory in legal scholarship. Authors and presenters are invited to submit proposals on topics relating to this theme, such as the following:
Contemporary Issues in Critical Race Theory Critical analyses of current issues in race and the law, including examinations of how contemporary legal issues may have unnoticed racial effects.
Critical Race Theory & Methodology Explorations of new methods for critical race scholarship, including interdisciplinary methods or the repurposing of older methods. We welcome scholarship on methodology as well as scholarship resulting from the use of new methods.
Critical Intersections Investigations into how race intersects with other categories of human existence (e.g. gender, sexuality, class) and how the law affects persons who inhabit these intersecting categories.
Critical Pedagogy Professor Bell considered teaching to be an essential part of his legacy, and so we welcome submissions that discuss a critical approach to legal pedagogy.
A selection of articles and essays from the symposium will be published as the final issue of volume 75 of the University of Pittsburgh Law Review.
Speakers who wish to be published should make a note of this in their initial abstract submission, and will be asked to submit a draft of their essay or article no later than December 1st, 2013.
