Call for papers: Symposium on ‘Borders: Laws of Physical and Conceptual Space’

Stanford Law, the Stanford Program in International Legal Studies (SPILS), Stanford Program in Law and Society and Queen’s University Faculty of Law is hosting a symposium on ‘Borders: Laws of Physical and Conceptual Space:’

Borders can be physical spaces that set the boundaries for countries, cities and so on. Borders can also be concepts that divide ways about thinking about the law (for instance, competing legal theories). Or they can be social constructs that separate different forms of individual identity. We will examine the relationship between law and the many disparate types of borders.

The symposium will be held at Stanford Law School on March 6 and 7, 2020. Faculty and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts (300 words or fewer) and a one-paragraph bio with contact details by September 30, 2019 to Maria O’Neill, Program Coordinator, at moneill@law.stanford.edu. We will not be accepting abstracts after September 30.

The symposium provides an opportunity for the presentation of papers, discussion, and debate on a broad set of legal issues relating to the symposium’s theme. There are two ways to participate, and submissions should specify which of the two approaches are of interest.

First, panelists can present papers connected to the symposium’s theme.

Second, individuals can discuss, in a more informal roundtable format, how their research or activism is connected to the themes noted above. While this participation does not involve paper presentations, interested persons should provide, in addition to their bio, a short outline of the focus of their proposed talks.

The conference is co-organized by Prof. Amalia Kessler, Stanford Law, and Prof. Arthur Cockfield, Queen’s University Faculty of Law. Prof. Lawrence Friedman, Stanford Law, is also assisting with organization.

Lanzamiento Digital “¿Cómo se sostiene la vida en América Latina? Feminismos y re-existencias”

La Fundación Rosa Luxemburg presenta la versión digital de “¿Cómo se sostiene la vida en América Latina? Feminismos y re-existencias en tiempos de oscuridad”.
Este trabajo colectivo, de 16 autores, editado por Karin Gabbert y Miriam Lang, da cuenta de los tiempos actuales, en la región, de una intensificación del extractivismo, la repatriarcalización de lo social y el auge de nuevas derechas. Pero también, recoge y visibiliza las energías transformadoras de los múltiples procesos y luchas populares. En ese sentido, se aboga por el balance de la denuncia necesaria de los abusos y la lucha por la durabilidad de los logros.
Estos procesos, de construcción tanto como de resistencia, están presentes en esta publicación y forman parte de los aprendizajes y caminos para construir, desde la diversidad, los desafíos del presente.
Esperamos que esta versión digital gratuita sea un insumo para sus investigaciones, fomente el debate y la búsqueda de alternativas al desarrollo: https://www.rosalux.org.ec/pdfs/como-se-sostiene-la-vida-en-america-latina.pdf

Llamado – presentación de ponencias – panel “Reflexiones metodológicas en torno al trabajo de campo en espacios administrativos y judiciales involucrados en la impartición de justicia” – LASA 2020

Se hace un llamado a presentar propuestas de ponencia para incluirse en el panel “Reflexiones metodológicas en torno al trabajo de campo en espacios administrativos y judiciales involucrados en la impartición de justicia”, coordinado por las Dras. May-ek Querales Mendoza (Estancia posdoctoral FES Cuautla – UAEM) y Erika Bárcena Arévalo (Estancia posdoctoral IIJ-UNAM), a proponerse en el Congreso LASA 2020 “Améfrica Ladina. Vinculando Mundos y Saberes, Tejiendo Esperanzas”, a realizarse en la ciudad de Guadalajara, Jalisco, México, los días 13-16 de mayo de 2020.

Las propuestas deberán tener un máximo de 250 palabras, e incluir nombre, correo electrónico y adscripción del (la) ponente. Se recibirán en los correos electrónicos mayekerales@gmail.com y erika.barcena.arevalo@gmail.com hasta el día 02 de septiembre de 2019. Se notificará sobre las propuestas aceptadas el día 03 de agosto de 2019. Es indispensable que las personas interesadas sean miembros vigentes de LASA.

El objetivo de este simposio es reflexionar sobre los alcances y los límites de las metodologías disponibles para los científicos sociales en el estudio de los espacios institucionales administrativos y jurisdiccionales involucrados en los procesos de impartición de justicia.
A pesar de que desde la década de 1980 se inició un proceso de reforma judicial en América Latina y de que paulatinamente el discurso de los derechos humanos se ha posicionado en los procesos judiciales y de investigación criminal; la tortura y los tratos crueles, inhumanos y degradantes; las ejecuciones extrajudiciales; la desaparición de personas y otras formas de violencia institucional se han mantenido como prácticas activas en los países de la región, sin que existan respuestas contundentes desde el poder judicial. Se agrega a esto una modificación estructural que ha permitido el ingreso y la participación de cuerpos de seguridad privada en las labores de seguridad pública, lo que redunda en un vacío jurídico en el que se desdibuja el marco de protección legal construido para los derechos humanos.
La comprensión y análisis de estos fenómenos ha requerido que se realice investigación en y sobre los espacios institucionales, y por ello consideramos indispensable un ejercicio de revisión y diálogo sobre las técnicas de observación y análisis a las que apela el científico social en su aproximación al estudio de los ámbitos judiciales y de investigación criminal en América Latina. Aun cuando es una piedra angular para la producción del conocimiento, la discusión metodológica suele ser minimizada frente a la presentación de los hallazgos, y éstos dependen en gran medida de la creatividad del científico y su habilidad para poner en juego múltiples técnicas en procesos de investigación.

Feminism, Law and Citizenship: Paris Call for June 2020

It is open until september 30th, the call for proposals to participate in the conference “Feminism, Law and Citizenship”.

Citizenship may be defined as the status of a citizen with its attendant duties, rights and privileges. It thus governs the relationship of individuals and the state they live in. Questioning the relationship between feminism, law and citizenship unsurprisingly builds on feminist legal theory, whose central claim posits the law as a fundamental tool in the historical subordination of women.

When the French Revolution pioneered “universal” suffrage in 1789, it was male-only and remained so until 1944, in spite of the struggle of feminist activists who immediately reacted to the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen with the publication in France of the Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen (Olympe de Gouges, 1791) and in England of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (Mary Wollstonecraft, 1792). This (in)famous example illustrates but one aspect that may be encompassed in this relationship, which will vary according to each historical and geo-political context.

If women’s suffrage is now accepted in virtually all countries, the link between gender, law and citizenship is also paramount in terms of property rights, reproductive rights, protection against discrimination, including intersectional discrimination. When the Irish decided in May 2018 to remove the ban on abortion from their Constitution, Clare Daly TD underlined in the Irish Parliament that the relationship between women and society was being transformed, echoing a reaction to the decriminalisation of abortion in Victoria, Australia: “With that comes our full citizenship”.

This international conference thus proposes to explore contemporary issues in the field of feminism, law and citizenship and invites papers related, but not limited, to the following perspectives:

  • Democracy and the rise of populism
  • Feminist activism
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Gender equality
  • Intersectionality
  • Reproductive rights and reproductive justice
  • Women’s rights

The conference is addressed to academics, researchers and professionals working in any discipline including law, philosophy, history, sociology, gender studies, politics, cultural studies and area studies. The conference will be both in French and English.

Proposals of up to 300 words in French or English and a brief biographical note should be sent by 30 September 2019to:

Alexandrine Guyard-Nedelec (if in French): alexandrine.guyard-nedelec@univ-paris1.fr

Call for articles – Forced Migration Review issue 63

It’s open untill Monday 4th November 2019 the call for articles to be published in February 2020, at issue 63 of Forced Migration Review.

There have been many developments since the 2010 issue of FMR on ‘Adapting to urban displacement’ was published. Increasing numbers of researchers are working in this field and growing numbers of agencies are adapting and developing their programmes in a world of increased urbanisation – including in the face of the projected impacts of climate change and associated rural–urban shifts. Ten years on, FMR will explore contemporary approaches and new technologies, plus the wide range of international frameworks, networks and initiatives in this area from which there is much to be learned.
See full call for articles at www.fmreview.org/cities for a more detailed outline of the proposed scope of the FMR issue.
In particular, the FMR Editors are looking for practice-oriented submissions, reflecting a diverse range of experience and opinions, which address questions such as the following:
1.     Analysing needs and challenges
2.     Frameworks, approaches and initiatives
3.     Multi-stakeholder collaboration and engagement 
4.     Resilience and sustainability
BEFORE WRITING YOUR ARTICLE:
If you are interested in contributing, please email the Editors at fmr@qeh.ox.ac.uk with a few sentences about your proposed topic so that we can provide feedback and let you know if we are interested in receiving your submission. 
WHEN WRITING/SUBMITTING YOUR ARTICLE:
Please take note of our guidelines for authors and ensure your article, when submitted, complies with our submission checklist: details atwww.fmreview.org/writing-fmr. We do not accept articles that do not comply with our checklist.
Please note: We ask all authors to give appropriate consideration to the particular relevance of their articles to persons with disabilities, to LGBTIQ+ persons, to older persons, and to other groups with specific vulnerabilities, and to seek to include a gendered approach as part of their articles. We also ask authors to consider, where appropriate, the impact of climate change in their analysis and recommendations.
While we are looking for examples of good, replicable practice and experience as well as sound analysis of the issues at stake, we also urge writers to discuss failures and difficulties: what does/did not work so well, and why?
We are particularly keen to reflect the experiences and knowledge of communities and individuals directly affected by these questions. If you have suggestions of colleagues or community representatives who may wish to contribute, please do email us; we are happy to work with individuals to help them develop an article and very keen to have displaced people’s perspectives reflected in the magazine.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS-AUSTRALIAN FEMINIST LAW JOURNAL A Critical Legal Journal

The Australian Feminist Law Journal calls for submissions for the positions of Special Editor(s) of a Special Themed Issue of the Journal, namely Volume 46.1 (June 2020). Special Editors work in conjunction with the Editorial Board to create a theme, solicit articles, organize the referee process, make publication decisions and guide author revisions, subject to the oversight of the Board who will ensure consistency with the AFLJ’s focus on critical feminist approaches to law and justice, broadly conceived.

As an international Critical Legal Journal we publish research informed by critical theory, cultural and literary theory, jurisprudential, postcolonial and psychoanalytic
approaches, amongst other critical research practices. Each journal issue normally comprises 8 articles of approximately 8,000 words, including footnotes. Special Editors are encouraged to plan their Themed Issue around a conference, workshop, or other mode of organizing preparations for the research and publication theme, including a public call for papers.

The timeline for publication would be as follows:

• Call for Papers for Volume 46.1 deadline August 15, 2019
• Final perfect drafts after revisions due with Editorial Board January 15, 2020
• Publication in June 2020

Proposals to become Special Editor(s) of Volume 46.1 should be sent to the Managing Editors at
aflj@griffith.edu.au

and include:
• the editor(s) names, institutions and relevant publications
• the proposed theme of the Special Issue in 300 words
• the significance of the chosen theme and the kind of papers which might be submitted
• the proposed timelines of the Volume

The Australian Feminist Law Journal is housed at the Griffith Law School:
