Papers Selected for 2014 Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Interdisciplinary Writing Competition

The conveners of the 2014 Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Interdisciplinary Writing Competition have announced the papers selected for this year's workshop. Here's the announcement:
Each year we solicit papers from senior graduate students and untenured faculty on topics in law and the humanities. The submissions are then juried by two outside senior readers, and based on those reviews the conveners selected seven papers and two alternates for inclusion in a conference held in June where the papers are workshopped by senior commentators in fields relevant to the papers.
