[We are re-posting the following call for proposals. Note the pending deadline: March 15, 2015.]
The 2015 annual meeting of the American Society for Legal History (ASLH)
will take place in Washington, DC, October 29 – Nov 1, 2015. The
Program Committee invites proposals on any facet or period of legal
history, anywhere in the world. We also encourage thematic proposals
that range across traditional chronological or geographical fields. In
selecting presenters, preference will be given to those who did not
present at the 2014 annual meeting.
Travel grants (covering airfare and ground transportation) will be
available for presenters in need, who must first seek support from their
home institution. These resources are limited, and priority will be
given to presenters traveling from abroad, graduate students, post-docs,
and independent scholars.
The Program Committee welcomes proposals for both full panels and
individual papers, though please note that individual papers are less
likely to be accepted. The Committee encourages the submission of a
variety of different types of panel proposals, including: traditional
3-paper panels (with a separate chair-commentator); incomplete panels
lacking either one paper or a chair-commentator (whether 2-paper panels
with a chair-commentator, or 3-paper panels without a
chair-commentator), which the Committee will try to complete;
author-meets-reader panels; and roundtable discussions.
All panel proposals should include the following:
A single page listing the panel title, the titles of each paper,
complete contact information for each presenter (including
chair-commentator), and any special scheduling requests. (Note that we
may not be able to accommodate all scheduling requests.)
a 300-word description of the panel
a c.v. for each presenter
for paper-based panels only: a 300-word abstract of each paper
Individual paper proposals should include:
a short (3 page) c.v. for each presenter (including complete contact information)
a 300-word abstract of the paper
Please note that AV equipment/PowerPoint capabilities will not be available.
The deadline for submitting proposals is March 15, 2015. Proposals should be sent as email attachments to email@example.com. Substantive questions should also be directed to the Program Committee co-chairs, Martha Jones and Charlotte Walker-Said, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those unable to send proposals as email attachments may mail hard
copies to: 2015 ASLH Program Committee, c/o Charlotte Walker-Said, John
Jay College-CUNY, 524 W. 59th St. New York, NY, 10019.
