ISHTIP Workshop 2019

The International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property will hold its 11th annual workshop at the University of Technology Sydney on 4 – 6 July 2019.

The city of Sydney is renowned for its spectacular natural setting and architectural landmarks. This year’s theme, Intellectual Property and the Visual, draws inspiration from its striking host city. The ‘visual turn’ in law has received growing attention in recent years from scholars exploring effects of the proliferation of images in social and legal spaces on the legal imagination. The 2019 workshop will explore aspects of the visual turn in the context of intellectual property law. Proposals for papers are invited to consider different ways in which the visual and the legal interact in relation to different fields of intellectual property law. These might include considering how intellectual property law treats visual subject matters, how subjects of intellectual property law or the law itself are represented or perceived, relationships between legal texts and images, the use of visual metaphors and images in the development of intellectual property law and interdisciplinary interactions with fields such as art history, visual studies, aesthetics, socio-legal and cultural studies.

Papers that address this call from an historical or theoretical perspective are welcomed from scholars working across the disciplines. Established and junior scholars are encouraged to submit papers and there will be a session devoted to presentations from doctoral students.  Proposers should be aware that authors (except for PhD students) do not present their own papers at ISHTIP workshops. Rather, a discussant presents a brief summary and critique of papers to facilitate a more general discussion.

Date for submission of proposals (extension): November 23, 2018.

Law and Society Association 2019 Annual Meeting -DIGNITY

After our last two meetings in Mexico City and Toronto, the Law and Society Association again returns to the US. We are all aware that, since the last time LSA met in the US, America now presents itself to the world as a less welcoming place, less publicly committed to universal human dignity.

The 2019 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 six papers in languages other than English. Submissions of individual paper proposals may however only be in English.

Dignity embraces justice, rights, rule of law, respect for humanity and diversity as well as a commitment to human engagement, subjects that have been central in the law and society tradition. Dignity is a core idea in many different legal traditions and is shaped by a variety of struggles. It provides a bridge across cultures intersecting with diverse values and identities. Recognizing this central idea as our theme when we meet next year in Washington D.C. – at a moment of social anxiety and global uncertainty – focuses our attention on the promise, values and unrealized potential of dignity and will highlight the role of values we examine law in society.

Position Announcement – University of California, Berkeley

“The Jurisprudence and Social Policy (JSP) Ph.D. Program in the School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley invites entry-level and lateral applicants for one or more full- time, tenured and tenure-track faculty positions. We are open to outstanding candidates in any area related to the study of law and legal institutions, but we are particularly interested for this search in candidates in the following fields and areas: law and political science (including public law), law and political economy, law and economics, law and inequality, law and psychology, or punishment and society/criminology. JSP embraces methodological pluralism, but has an acute current need for scholars who use statistical methods in their research targeted on the study of law and can/will teach statistical methods at the doctoral-level (which could include data science).

Entry-level applicants must either: a) hold a Ph.D. or equivalent international degree by date of application, or b) have advanced to candidacy status for a Ph.D., or equivalent international degree, in political science, economics, or another social science field at the time of application. Lateral applicants must hold a Ph.D., or equivalent international degree in political science, economics, or another social science field at the time of application. Given the multidisciplinary character of the JSP Program, faculty members are expected to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses within their own expertise, and help mentor doctoral students within their own area of disciplinary training as well as across a range of fields. They also are expected to teach in the interdisciplinary undergraduate major, Legal Studies, which operates under the auspices of JSP. A J.D. degree is not required, though we welcome candidates who could contribute to teaching within the broader community at Berkeley Law, including the J.D. program.

We are interested in candidates who have demonstrated excellence in research, teaching and service, and a commitment to building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

Candidates may be appointed at the tenure-track or tenured level, depending upon their qualifications and experience. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2019. For further details about the JSP and Legal Studies Programs, see http://www.law.berkeley.edu/jsp/ and http://legalstudies.berkeley.edu/. If you have questions about the position, contact Taeku Lee, Search Chair and Professor of Law and Political Science (taekulee@berkeley.edu) and/or Calvin Morrill, Associate Dean for JSP / Legal Studies (cmorrill@law.berkeley.edu).

Early applications are encouraged. The final deadline for applications is October 1,

2018.

Entry-level candidates must complete an online application with Berkeley Law via the following link: https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF01836.

Lateral candidates who already hold tenured or tenure-track positions at other institutions are encouraged to apply online for consideration via the following link: https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF01835.

All applications should include in pdf format a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, a description of current research and teaching interests, a diversity statement describing past and proposed contributions to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (further information about the diversity statement is available at: https://ofew.berkeley.edu/recruitment/contributions- diversity/support-faculty-candidates), and copies of or electronic links to representative and recent scholarship. Entry-level candidates must supply three letters of reference. Lateral candidates should not send letters of reference, but must enter three references with contact information who may be contacted for letters at a later time. Other materials, such as teaching evaluations, may be requested of top candidates for entry-level or lateral positions. All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a dossier service or career center, to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html) prior to submitting their letters.
