Law on The Edge Conference Seeking Proposals

October 22, 2012

The Canadian Law and Society Association and the Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand are seeking session proposals for their upcoming joint Law on the Edge conference, being held at UBC from July 1-4, 2013.

From the call for proposals:

“The concept of living on the edge is not simply geo-political. While it is a politics of the edge, perpetually responding to and writing back at the centre, it is also a recognition that law itself constitutes boundaries and edges, creating sameness, difference, Others and allies. The conference planning emphasizes the following themes:

  • Law in times of crisis, tragedy & uncertainty;
  • Indigeneity, pluralism & difference;
  • Law on the geopolitical edge;
  • Connections, departures, mobilities; and
  • New legal spaces on the edge.”

The conference organizers are looking for a proposals for a wide variety of programming and roles: paper and panel proposals; graduate student workshop ; research workshops ; field trips ; and chairing panels. Proposals must be e-mailed to lawontheedge@law.ubc.ca by December, 10 2012.
