Weekend Roundup

  • Hey, women legal historians: consider citing yourself for that point. Via the Chronicle of Higher Education, there is a new gender gap in academia: "Even as citation rates become a key measure of productivity, 
women don’t refer to their own research nearly as often as men do."
  • Also via the Chronicle of Higher Ed, some great news: "The American Historical Association and four universities will split a $1.6-million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation aimed at broadening the career paths of history Ph.D.’s . . . ."
  • Leiden University's Department of Child Law will hold a conference to mark the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (Nov. 17-19, 2014). Abstracts are due by April 1, 2014. (Hat tip: Legal Scholarship Blog)
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
