CFP: Law and Society Association Annual Conference, 2013

The Law and Society Association has released a Call for Papers for its upcoming annual conference (May 30-June 2, 2013, in Boston, Mass.). Here's the announcement:
Power, Privilege and the Pursuit of Justice: Legal Challenges in Precarious Times
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 a 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.
This year’s Program Committee is Co-Chaired by Christine Harrington, NYU, Politics, and Greg Shaffer, University of Minnesota, Law. We invite the submission of Individual Papers and/or Session proposals. Papers and panels need not be centered on the conference theme. Proposals on any law and society topic are welcome.
