Intellectual Property and the Visual Workshop 2019 Call for Papers

Workshop 2019 Call for Papers

University of Technology Sydney, 4 – 6 July 2019

Intellectual Property and the Visual

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. To allow this, complete papers must be submitted by 1 June 2019.

Proposals for papers should be no more than one page and accompanied by a 2 page CV. Submissions should be sent by email to Isabella.Alexander@uts.edu.au.

Date for submission of proposals: 15 October 2018

Expected date for notification of acceptance:  15 December 2018

Date for submission of full papers: 1 June 2019

ICON Society – Colombia

El 18 y el 19 de septiembre se realizará el lanzamiento oficial del capítulo Colombia de The International Society of Public Law: ICON Society, en la Universidad de los Andes y la Universidad Externado de Colombia, respectivamente.

The initiative to create an International Society of Public Law emerged from the Editorial Board of I·CON – the International Journal of Constitutional Law. For several years now I·CON has been, both by choice and by the cartographic reality of the field, much more than a journal of comparative constitutional Law. I·CON has expanded its interests, range of authors, readers, Editorial Board members and, above all, issues covered to include not only discrete articles in fields such as Administrative Law, Global Constitutional Law, Global Administrative Law and the like, but also increasingly includes scholarship that reflects both legal reality and academic perception, and which in dealing with the challenges of public life and governance combines elements from all of the above with a good dosage of political theory and social science.

Funding to attend two conferences per year and support for a research assistant is also included. Professors Anna Kirkland (Women’s Studies) and Sandra Levitsky (Sociology) will serve as the primary mentors. The ideal candidate will propose a research project in law, gender, and health that demonstrates originality, creativity, strong research and writing skills, and the potential to bring diversity and excellence to the academic profession. Additional faculty mentors may be available from across the University of Michigan according to the fellow’s interests, particularly in civil rights and discrimination, transgender studies, criminal law, opioids, queer studies, and women’s health and reproductive rights (but these topics are not an exclusive list). The faculty mentors will support the fellow’s professional development as well as offer opportunities to develop new collaborations, access additional data sources or sites, expand dissertation research into publications, and write grant proposals. The Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) will also commit matching funds to host a research symposium organized around the fellow’s research during the second postdoctoral year. The postdoctoral fellow will have an office in Lane Hall on the Ann Arbor campus at the Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) and will be expected to be in residence during the entire two year fellowship period. There is no teaching required in this position. Founded in 1995, the Institute for Research on Women and Gender at Michigan promotes faculty research on women, gender, and sexuality and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Applicants who will have completed the doctoral degree by September 1, 2019 are eligible to apply. Individuals awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan or currently holding a postdoctoral or faculty position at UM are not eligible. Those holding only professional terminal degrees such as a J.D. or M.P.H. are not eligible.

Applications will be evaluated based on the quality, feasibility, and originality of the proposed research agenda; the potential for successful mentoring in the topic, methods, and approaches of the proposed research by the faculty mentors; and the ability of the postdoctoral fellow to contribute to diversity and excellence in the area of law, gender, and health.

Application deadline is Monday, September 17, 2018. We will conduct virtual interviews with finalists (i.e., no fly out) and plan to make a final decision by November 1, 2018. Alternates will be selected. The position would begin on September 1, 2019.
