Institute for Global Law and Policy – Residential Fellowship Program

The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) Residential Fellowship Program aims to support doctoral and post-doctoral scholars who are currently pursuing research in the areas of global law, economic policy, and social justice.

The number of Fellowships awarded each year depends upon the available funding. Applicants considered for Fellowships are those whose work is challenging, original and focuses on progressive and alternative ideas within international law. Often, work of this nature is not supported by mainstream institutional resources and the IGLP strives to give opportunities for diverse ideas to flourish. IGLP Fellows are integral members of the Institute and provide valuable programming insight and assistance with the execution of our conferences and workshops.

Application deadline: February 23, 2018.

Escuela de Primavera Pensamientos y Feminismos Descoloniales

La Escuela de Primavera Pensamientos y Feminismos Descoloniales se realizará del 26 al 30 de marzo en la ciudad de México.

La escuela de primavera Pensamientos y Feminismos Descoloniales Latinoamericanos pretende ampliar la discusión y debate acerca de la descolonización del conocimiento en América Latina. La descolonización entendida en su sentido más amplio como descolonización de la economía-política, sexualidad, raza, género, epistemología, espiritualidad, pedagogía, ecología y las formas de autoridad política no es una opción sino una urgente necesidad en el mundo contemporáneo. Lo que se juega en esta civilización moderna/colonial es la vida misma y el futuro de las diversas especies (humana y no-humana). Esta escuela pretende abordar estos temas con especial énfasis en la descolonización epistemológica en clave de pensamientos y feminismos descoloniales en América Latina. Los proyectos descoloniales son inherentemente plurales, diversos y múltiples. No puede haber un solo lenguaje ni una sola visión descolonial en el mundo hoy. Las diversas historias imperiales/coloniales, resistencias locales y epistemologías no permiten que pueda hablarse de un proyecto mono-universalista de descolonización y liberación. En el momento en que eso pase, se reproduce nuevamente el Uni-versalismo occidentalocéntrico. La apertura a diálogos inter-epistémicos con pensamientos y feminismos descoloniales indígenas, afros y mestizos en todas sus diversidades, es una prioridad de esta escuela descolonial.

Fecha límite para enviar solicitudes: 10 de febrero de 2018.

CfP – Annual ISHTIP Workshop

The Call for Papers is open for the Annual Workshop of the International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property (ISHTIP).

2018 marks the tenth anniversary of the establishment of ISHTIP, which held its first workshop in the Stationers’ Hall in London in March 2008. The Stationers Hall, with its special place in intellectual property law and history, seemed an appropriate place to kick off an interdisciplinary society with a particular focus on the interaction of those two disciplines. Ten years on, ISHTIP has deepened its interdisciplinary engagement providing a forum for an array of new disciplinary and critical theoretical perspectives. Influenced by the idea of reflecting on the heritage of ISHTIP itself, and inspired by its location in a city that has a special place in the canon of Western heritage, this year’s workshop invites proposals for papers on the relationship between forms of intellectual property and heritage. The concept of heritage, despite being vaguely defined in law – or perhaps because of this – is part of a rhetorical moving feast in political and cultural discourse. Not only does its apparent subject matter often overlap with the subject matter of intellectual property, it also shares many of the problematic tropes of intellectual property. These include, but are not limited to, matters such as its strongly occidental flavour located in an ordering of knowledge that claims to be universal, its apparently constitutive relationship with social understandings of concepts like culture and innovation, and its uncertain relationship with concepts of im/materiality and in/tangibility. Like intellectual property, it is also characterised by the wide range of disciplinary perspectives that it has attracted. In other ways it is profoundly different. One of the significant differences in the present context is that as an area of study it has, so far, been subject to less colonization by legal scholars. We hope, therefore, that this will generate a particularly rich interdisciplinary exchange in Rome in July 2018.

Date for submission of proposals: 16 February 2018

Stanford Center for Law and History Graduate Student Paper Prize

Stanford Center for Law and History Graduate Student Paper Prize

The Stanford Center for Law and History invites paper submissions from graduate students for its first annual conference, “Legal Histories of Policing and Surveillance.” SCLH’s goal is to bring together faculty, postdocs, and students for workshops, conferences, and lectures examining the relationships between law and history, broadly defined.

The one-day conference will be held on April 20, 2018, at Stanford Law School. It will include a keynote address by Professor Michael Willrich and three panels featuring a range of prominent legal historians entitled: “Broadening the State’s Criminal Oversight Power,” “Surveillance Technologies and Legal Culture,” and “Policing Intimate and Family Life.”

The conference organizers will select one graduate student as the inaugural winner of the SCLH Graduate Student Paper Prize. This student will be added to one of the three panels—alongside distinguished faculty working on related topics—based on the fit between the proposed paper and the three panel themes. Funding for travel and housing will be provided.

To apply, submit the following in a single PDF here. The deadline is Friday, December 1, 2017.
