Call for Articles: Law and Justice / Convocatórias de Artigos: Direito e Justiça





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.

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.


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.


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: 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

Law and Society Association 2020 Annual Meeting

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

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

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 (…).

Becas de investigación para equipos “Los nudos críticos de las desigualdades de género en América Latina y el Caribe”

La situación de las mujeres en América Latina y el Caribe está signada por diversas precarizaciones. Sus vidas se producen en dinámicas de desigualdad y discriminación. Si bien han existido cambios y avances en los últimos años y la situación no es la misma en todos los países y regiones, las desigualdades persisten y son particularmente marcadas en las vidas femeninas.
Diversos tipos de violencias surcan la vida de millones de mujeres, muchas veces sustentadas en la naturalización de múltiples desigualdades. En muchos países la situación de las mujeres y de las luchas por igualdad de derechos y mejores condiciones de vida se ha deteriorado en los últimos años, constatándose una compleja situación de amenzas y peligros. Paralelamente, crecen las movilizaciones de amplios sectores sociales por los derechos de las mujeres, denunciando violencias, desigualdades y discriminaciones de diverso tipo y exigiendo el respeto de la vida digna y el reconicimiento de la igualdad.
En esta convocatoria promovemos la postulación de equipos de investigación que integren investigadoras e investigadores de diversas formaciones, trayectorias y experiencias y que puedan incorporar también la responsabilidad pública y el trabajo con organizaciones y movimientos sociales.
A partir de lo dicho, CLACSO convoca a Becas de investigación para equipos “Los nudos críticos de las desigualdades de género en América Latina y el Caribe” que se proponen producir conocimientos rigurosos acerca de los temas planteados, así como generar incidencia que contribuya a contrarrestar las desigualdades que viven las mujeres de América Latina y el Caribe.

IV ISA Forum of Sociology

Challenges of the 21st Century:
Democracy, Environment, Inequalities, Intersectionality

Twenty years after the start of our century, the optimism of the Millennium has faded and the challenges we face for living together on a limited planet are even more urgent.

While the expansion and the deepening of democratization was taken for granted at the turn of the Millennium, democracy has been at stake in an increasing number of countries, while its key component such as diversity and equal respect for all citizens are threatened. The hope for a global democracy able to tackle global issues such as climate change, migrations and rising inequalities have faded. It has now become clear that to face global challenges, democracy needs to be re-invented within and beyond the representative system.

The 2020 ISA Forum will provide sociological analyses of these four global challenges paying particular attention to their interconnections and to possible solutions. We will discuss how both progressive and conservative actors and movements tackle these challenges and their conflictive perspectives. We will use this Forum to ask how our discipline has been meeting these four global challenges and it has been transformed by them. What are the contributions of the actors and epistemologies of the South? What are the new trends in global sociology that allow innovative analyses of these challenges? What are the main obstacles we face to tackle these problems? How can innovative sociological analyses contribute to grasp and to face our common problems in the Global Age?

CALL FOR PAPERS Place, Memory; Justice: Critical Perspectives on Sites of Conscience, Memory & Justice: Critical Perspectives on Sites of Conscience

A special issue of Space & Culture

Co-edited by Justine Lloyd (Sociology, Macquarie University, Australia) & Linda Steele (Law, University of Technology, Australia)

Sites of Conscience, as a global movement to reclaim and reinterpret places of human suffering and injustice as sites of memory, encourages reflection on how a geographically situated and specific set of past events have broader relevance to contemporary debates about democracy, human rights and social justice (Ševčenko 2010, 2011). Sites of conscience have emerged in response to diverse harms and injustices including institutional abuse, war, disappearance, environmental disaster, genocide, racial apartheid and labour exploitation.

Becas de investigación en migraciones y movilidad humana

Convocatoria Edelberto Torres Rivas

Problemas estructurales de carácter histórico aún no resueltos por los estados de Centroamérica se han profundizado en la actualidad, mostrando la complejidad de las asimetrías tanto entre los países de esta región como a nivel hemisférico y global.

Se han intensificado las migraciones protagonizadas por personas, familias y comunidades que se desplazan en búsqueda de alternativas para su sostenibilidad, pero también para salvaguardar la vida en contextos de conflictos socio-políticos, de inseguridad pública o de violencia política, de riesgos en entornos de desastres naturales o por impactos en los sistemas de vida propiciados por el cambio climático.

CLACSO abre la Convocatoria a Becas de investigación en Migraciones y movilidad humana recordando a Edelberto Torres Rivas, destacado intelectual centroamericano comprometido con el estudio y la transformación de las realidades de la región.

• Cierre de inscripción: 26/08/19, 24:00 horas (Argentina)
• Realización del proyecto: septiembre de 2019 y junio de 2020
• Presentación de la versión final: 31 de julio de 2020
