CFP: LSA seeks new ideas for the future from Junior Scholars

Via email:

Would you like a chance to present your ideas at the 2014 annual meeting and receive generous travel support?

We invite junior scholars around the world with new and innovative ideas to submit them to the LSA Project on the 2nd Anniversary Meeting in Minneapolis MN May 29-June 1 2014. Winning authors will receive a substantial subsidy to cover the cost of participation and a year’s free membership to the Law and Society Association.

The competition is organized by the LSA Project on the 2nd Half Century, which was created on the eve of LSA’s 50th Anniversary to stimulate discussion about the future role of the Association. We invite junior scholars to submit short essays on the following theme:

What is the future of socio-legal studies, what new possibilities exit, and what innovations should the Law and Society Association consider as it enters the 2nd Half Century?

Essays must be in English. They cannot exceed 2000 words. They could consider use of new technologies, new ways to build scholarly networks, new training initiatives, and other innovations. Successful essays may include assessment of present LSA activities as well as proposals for innovation.
