[I'm moving up this previously posted call for the Law & Society meeting because the deadline is next week and we hear from our friends on the Program Committee that it is particularly keen to have papers from legal historians.]
The Law and Society Association announces its Call for Participation in its 2013 Annual Conference, which will be held in Boston on May 30 - June 2, 2013. The theme of the meeting is "Power, Privilege, and the Pursuit of Justice: Legal Challenges in Precarious Times." LSA explains:
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.Proposals for Individual Papers, Fully-Formed Sessions, and Poster Papers are welcome. All proposals are due by December 4, 2012. Further information is available here.
