Call For Papers: Law, Society, and Culture in Germany
German Studies Association
Oakland, California, October 7-10, 2010
Hat tip: H-Law
For the 2010 German Studies Association meeting in Oakland,California, we will be convening a series of panels on matters legal.We envisage a broad set of topics, from the development of specific legal practices and cultures in Germany to the function of law in wider cultural fields; from theories of law and the emergence of the so-called Rechtstaat to the development of business law and legal integration in the nineteenth century. From the philosophy of law to the legal cultures and literatures that extend from medieval to modern periods, these panels are intended to foster an extended conversation on the law across humanities and social science disciplines. We encourage submissions from scholars in all aspects of the law, and are especially interested in both methodological and temporal breadth.
The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2010. For queries and submissions, please contact:
Professor Timothy Guinnane, Economics, Yale University(firstname.lastname@example.org)
Professor Jonathan Sheehan, History, University of California, Berkeley (email@example.com)
