CALL FOR ARTICLES – REVISTA TEMAS SOCIOLÓGICOS

 

DOSSIER SECTION:  “LAW AND JUSTICE: TOWARDS A SOCIOLOGY OF STATE POWER”

 

The Revista Temas Sociológicos, published by the Catholic University Silva Henríquez (Santiago, Chile) School of Sociology, invites the academic community to send articles for its 26th edition, whose dossier section will be dedicated to a reflection on “Law and Justice: Towards a Sociology of State Power.” This dossier invites you to send proposals that reflect on the Sociology of the State in general, and the Sociology of law and Sociology of justice in particular. For this reason, we look forward to receiving papers that address the following core issues: 

 

  • Sociology of law and Sociology of justice in Latin America, with special emphasis on the evolution of main agendas and social demands.
  • Sociology of the judiciary and Judicial Branch. And specifically, the profiles, formation, career paths, recruitment and selection of the key players that hold the highest institutional positions in the Judiciary, such as judges and magistrates.
  • Associative forms, the work of the judges, and the configuration of their new professional identities.
  • The impact of the judges’ social profiles and/or career paths in the promotion and implementation of justice reforms or codes that govern how they work.
  • The social factors that govern the specializations, internationalization, and/or professional achievements of the judges. 
  • The transformation of court practices and the innovation of the justice system through a sociological analysis of the contents of its rulings or decisions.
  • Sociology of the power of the State, the sociological dimension of its three Branches, and the relations between the Judicial Branch, the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch.

ST 188: violencia contra las mujeres, feminismos y derechos: análisis interseccionais y decoloniais
Coordenadoras/es:
Cecilia Santos (Universidad de San Francisco), Carmen eh de campos (Uniritter / RS)
Resumen: diversas formas de violencia contra mujeres (hogar, institucional, policía, comunitaria, política, etc) han sido politizadas por diferentes movimientos de mujeres. Sin embargo, prácticas y saberes feministas hegemónicos han hecho algunas formas de violencia más visibles que otras, contribuyendo a la injusticia epistémica y social en el propio campo de los feminismos. Desde los años 1980, los estudios feministas en Brasil, por ejemplo, han dado mayor atención a la violencia doméstica y / o intrafamiliar y más recientemente al tráfico de mujeres y al feminicidio. Predominan, en los estudios feministas sobre violencia, análisis unidimensionales de género (cisgênero) y del patriarcado. Falta una mayor atención a la interseccionalidade de género con otras categorías sociales, como raza / Etnia, clase social, orientación sexual, identidades de género trans y no binarias, discapacidad, entre otras, que pueden moldear situaciones específicas de violencia y crear obstáculos adicionales al Acceso a la (s) Justicia (s) y reconocimiento de derechos. También falta una discusión sobre la ‘colonialidade de género’ (Lugones) y una mirada crítica sobre el papel del estado y de los sistemas de justicia en la (re) producción de violencias intersectadas contra mujeres racializadas, trans y / o con discapacidad.

En este simposio temático, invitamos a propuestas de trabajos que aborden, sea empírica o teóricamente, a la luz de análisis feministas interseccionais y decoloniais, diversas formas de violencia contra mujeres, luchas por derechos protagonizadas por diferentes movimientos de mujeres, políticas públicas sobre violencia y prácticas de los sistemas De justicia en este campo temático Qué formas de violencia contra mujeres y qué categorías sociales (clase, raza, género, orientación sexual, discapacidad, etc. ) son visibilizadas por los movimientos de mujeres? Cómo se rigen por los estados o por los sistemas de justicia no estatal? Además de la perspectiva de género, las perspectivas interseccional y decolonial se incorporan a las políticas y a las prácticas de enfrentamiento de las violencias contra mujeres? Qué grupos de mujeres, qué cuerpos, qué identidades, qué derechos son dignos de protección por el derecho y la justicia (Estatal, interestatal o no-Estatal)? Cuáles son los efectos de los conocimientos y las prácticas feministas y de las políticas de lucha contra la violencia contra las mujeres sobre los cuerpos, las identidades y las mujeres de las mujeres en situación

2020 LAW AND HUMANITIES JUNIOR SCHOLARS WORKSHOP Call for Papers

Columbia Law School, Georgetown University Law School, Stanford Law School, UCLA School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Southern California Center for Law, History, and Culture invite submissions for the nineteenth meeting of the Law and Humanities Junior Scholars Workshop, to be held at UCLA School of Law in Los Angeles, CA, on Sunday, June 7, and Monday, June 8, 2020.

 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The paper competition is open to untenured professors, advanced graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars in law and the humanities. In addition to drawing from numerous humanistic fields, we welcome critical, qualitative work in the social sciences. We are especially interested in submissions from members of traditionally underrepresented groups.  We welcome submissions from those working at regional and teaching-intensive institutions.

 

Based on anonymous evaluation by an interdisciplinary selection committee, between five and ten papers will be chosen for presentation at the June Workshop. At the Workshop, two senior scholars will comment on each paper. Commentators and other Workshop participants will be asked to focus specifically on the strengths and weaknesses of the selected scholarly projects, with respect to subject and methodology. The selected papers will then serve as the basis for a larger conversation among all the participants about the evolving standards by which we judge excellence and creativity in interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as about the nature of interdisciplinarity itself.

 

The selected papers will appear in a special issue of the Legal Scholarship Network; there is no other publication commitment. (We will accommodate the wishes of chosen authors who prefer not to have their paper posted publicly with us because of publication commitments to other journals.)

 

The Workshop will pay the domestic travel and hotel expenses of authors whose papers are selected for presentation. For authors requiring airline travel from outside the United States, the Workshop will cover such travel expenses up to a maximum of $1000.

 

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Papers must be works-in-progress that do not exceed 15,000 words in length (including footnotes/ endnotes); most papers selected for inclusion in recent years have been at least 10,000 words long. An abstract of no more than 200 words must also be included with the paper submission. A dissertation chapter may be submitted, but we strongly suggest that it be edited so as to stand alone as a piece of work with its own integrity. A paper that has been submitted for publication is eligible for selection so long as it will not be in galley proofs or in print at the time of the Workshop; it is important that authors still be in a position at the time of the Workshop to consider comments they receive there and to incorporate them as they think appropriate in their revisions.

 

We ask that those submitting papers be careful to omit or redact any information in the body of the paper that might serve to identify them, as we adhere to an anonymous or “blind” selection process.

 

Submissions (in Microsoft Word—no pdf files, please) will be accepted until December 2, 2019, and should be sent by e-mail to: juniorscholarsworkshop@sas.upenn.edu. Please be sure to include your name, institutional affiliation (if any), and phone and e-mail contact information in your covering email, not in the paper itself.

 

For more information, please send an email inquiry to juniorscholarsworkshop@sas.upenn.edu.

Convocatoria de ensayos: Feminismos y sindicatos en iberoamérica

https://www.clacso.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Convocatoria-Feminismos-y-sindicatos-imagen-web.jpg

El Consejo Latinoamericano de Ciencias Sociales (CLACSO) junto con el Instituto de Estudios Sociales en Contextos de Desigualdades de la Universidad Nacional de José C. Paz (IESCODE – UNPAZ) convocan al Concurso de ensayos “Feminismos y sindicatos en Iberoamérica: experiencias, encuentros y desencuentros”, con el propósito de incentivar la investigación y reflexión críticas en torno a los impactos resultantes de la confluencia de ideas y prácticas feministas en el ámbito sindical a escala regional.

Se pretende indagar acerca de los diálogos que se establecen entre retóricas y praxis feministas y el universo sindical en sentido amplio, incorporando a la mirada organizaciones de trabajadores/as que revisten diferentes grados de formalización, atendiendo así a la existencia de fuertes desigualdades laborales de género. Asimismo, la intención es abrir preguntas sobre el lugar que encuentra la participación de las mujeres y disidencias en estos espacios sindicales y cómo se vincula esta participación con las reivindicaciones feministas.

Law and Society Association 2020 Annual Meeting

https://www.lawandsociety.org/images/Red%20and%20Blue%20Square%20Logo%20Option%201%20Small%20Size%20(002).jpg

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Annual Law and Society Association Meeting!

May 28-May 31, 2020 in Denver, Colorado, USA.

The globe is facing massive challenges that defy established mechanisms of governance. Climate change, wars, and continuing poverty lead to both the dislocation and the isolation of populations. New forms of mobility and demographic change have put strain on the institutions responsible for social provision, like education, housing and employment. New dynamics of rule and resistance are emerging as fearful (and racist) people opt to elect authoritarians who promise stability and a return to some “golden age,” when there was less freedom, less liberty and more control through the use of real or threatened violence. In this world, sociolegal scholars are understandably concerned with understanding these phenomena as well as identifying what systems of ruling authority can address these problems and how they can do so — while also protecting the rights of the world’s residents and providing conditions for them to flourish.

Rule may be singular as well as plural. In a moment when we see the rise of authoritarian forms of governance, how are rules asserted as a form of resistance? Resistance is often envisioned as the deliberate breaking of rules, such as through civil disobedience or other forms of rebellion. But resistance can sometimes take the form of exact adherence to rules, such as the industrial strategy of work-to-rule, where workers do no more than the minimum required under their contract. In other situations, instituting rules can itself be an act of resistance against forms of lawless tyranny, or resistance might manifest through attempts to change particular rules and promote different rules. Resistance, too, is not without its rules: resistance movements have often developed their own internal rules to guide and co-ordinate the pursuit of their objectives.

In the face of this tidal wave of authoritarian rule in various parts of the globe, resistance takes many forms, all of which have implications for the way that people govern and organize themselves. In the US, we see social movements organizing protests, while courts are sometimes supporting the rule of law against a lawless administration. New currents of activity appear to be forming in realms such as reproductive rights and the regulation of gender-based misconduct. Narratives of resistance are emerging and stretching across national borders, including that of decolonisation. Many of these forms of resistance are aimed at asserting control over governing institutions, although many also contest elsewhere. In any case, organized institutional resistance is only one possibility; others resist through revolution, rejecting those institutions entirely, or through flight from repressive conditions, seeking refuge.

The 2020 Program Committee invites individual and fully-formed panel submissions for what will be a challenging and exciting meeting. The Program Committee also welcomes the submission of complete panels of four to five papers in languages other than English. Submissions of individual paper proposals may however only be in English.

Submissions open September 5th. The deadline for proposal submission is November 6, 2019.

Registration will begin in December, 2019.

If you have questions, please contact the LSA Executive Office.

We hope you will join in what promises to be a full and exciting program in Denver, Colorado

Sincerely,
Jonathan Klaaren
Anna-Maria Marshall

JORNADA DE INVESTIGACIÓN, DOCENCIA Y EXTENSIÓN SOBRE MIGRACIÓN INTERNACIONAL EN CÓRDOBA

https://i0.wp.com/ciecs-conicet.gob.ar/sitio/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/topbar-01.jpg

Las movilidades en el contexto mundial actual, y específicamente la migración internacional, constituyen un fenómeno social en constante transformación, condición que no sólo interpela a las personas migrantes y a los sistemas de control estatal, de supervivencia económica y de “integración” social, sino también a quienes estudiamos la complejidad que asumen estas realidades societales. Al respecto, en las últimas décadas, en el contexto de Córdoba se han consolidado distintos espacios universitarios que buscan comprender la complejidad del hecho social de la migración y las movilidades humanas. Si bien en este marco confluyen algunos grupos de investigación, docencia y extensión en relación con la temática migratoria, existen pocas instancias orientadas a compartir e intercambiar inquietudes, debates y experiencias en torno a los procesos relacionados.

Con el propósito de generar nuevos diálogos, desde el Programa de Migración y Movilidades en Perspectiva Crítica (CIECS-CONICET-UNC ❘ CEA-FCS-UNC), convocamos a los equipos de investigación, docencia y extensión que abordan la cuestión migratoria desde Córdoba a la realización de un espacio de intercambio académico entre diversos actores: investigadores, docentes, estudiantes y extensionistas.

Fecha límite de confirmación de participación: Viernes 11 de octubre de 2019.

Agradecemos la difusión a aquellas personas y espacios que crean pueden estar interesados.

Saludos cordiales,

Call for Papers: Research Workshop – Sociological Perspectives on International Economic Law and Human Rights Law

https://i2.wp.com/globalgovernanceprogramme.eui.eu/wp-content/themes/yoo_venice_wp/images/ggp.png

International law is rooted in communities, influencing and affected by social groups and their socio-cultural features. Thus, a variety of socio-cultural factors and processes are intertwined in the formation, interpretation and implementation of international law. This fifth workshop on the sociology of international law focuses on various sociological aspects pertaining to international economic law and human rights law, as well as to interrelationships between these two major legal fields. Contributors will explore diverse interactions between sociological concepts (such as identity, socialisation, collective memory, social control or frames) and broad range of legal rules and institutions in these spheres. Contributors are particularly welcome to submit proposals in the following areas:

1. Sociological aspects of international trade law, investment law, intellectual property rights or economic development (…).

2. The sociological dimension of international human rights law and institutions, including interactions between human rights protection and social values (…).

3. Sociological issues involved in interactions between international human rights protection and international economic law (…).

The interdisciplinary Legal Studies Program of the Department of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for a faculty position at the Assistant Professor rank expected to start on September 1, 2020. We welcome applications from scholars studying law and inequality. Substantive areas could include access to justice; bias in the administration of justice; human and civil rights; social inequality and discrimination; crime and criminal justice; citizenship and immigration; gender, race, and the law; environmental and technological injustices; law and social movements; disparities in the labor force; and other interdisciplinary areas of study. We encourage applications from scholars studying American, comparative, and/or international law and inequality topics.
The successful candidate should exhibit significant promise in scholarly publishing, a commitment to teaching excellence, and the ability to contribute to the intellectual growth of the Legal Studies Program and the Department of Political Science. The capacity to secure extramural funding will be looked upon favorably.

Application Instructions:

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, up to three samples of written work, evidence of quality teaching (such as summaries of teaching evaluations and/or a teaching statement), and contact information for at least three reference writers who are willing to submit letters upon request, through the UMass online applications system (available at the end of September 2019). In addition to the materials noted above, applicants should also submit a one-page diversity statement that discusses past or future contributions to inclusive excellence in the areas of research, teaching and/or outreach.

Critical Legal Thinking — Law and the Political —

CfP: Art/Law Issue 1 (Practice & Process)

 

The first issue of the Art/Law Journal encourages submissions to consider understandings of practice and process very broadly defined. We are looking for submissions on questions relating to process and practice in the interweavings between art, law and political activism.

Both art and law are placed within a disciplining of practicing, each requiring ‘practitioners’ and the production of processual and practical intuition as part of their calling. What does it mean to be a practitioner? The word itself instils something that is unfinished, and yet there is an authority and legitimacy that at once asserts we have a ‘practice’. Are practices and processes the same thing?

Please send to info@artlawnetwork.org. Expressions of interest for this call to be sent by 31 October 2019.

Resumen: Las ideas contenidas en este libro fueron discutidas previamente en los Congresos de Sociología Jurídica de 2017 y 2018. Así, el trabajo fue encarado desde una mirada federal, transversal e interdisciplinaria, aunando diversos enfoques de la problemática sobre género y derecho, constituídos por aportes realizados desde psicología, derecho y comunicación social, entre otras, poniendo en discusión perspectivas, conceptos y prácticas.

Ello, bajo la pretensión de conformar una agenda de debate sobre las relaciones entre género y derecho que fortalezca y diversifique las discusiones a partir del temario propuesto. Para ello, proponemos una mirada que revalorice la multiplicidad de saberes sobre mujeres, género(s) y diversidades así como su impostergable incorporación a la agenda pública, a la enseñanza jurídica y a la investigación científica
