4th Annual Law and Society CrimProf Shadow Conference: Logistics and Nov. 12 deadline
The following is an email I sent out earlier on the CrimProf Listserv.
Dear crimprof friends,
The Law and Society conference will be taking place on June 5-8 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, HI, USA. Some background and the call for papers can be found here.
If you are working on a book manuscript and would like to have a few people give you feedback in advance of publication, let us know, and let us know who you might be interested in reading that manuscript and discussing it at LSA. If you're interested in an author-meets readers panel for an already published book, then you can let us know about that too, but I think we'll focus on works in progress than already published books, depending on demand.
In sum, if you're interested in participating in this shadow conference, there will be different opportunities for you to present your own work or serve as a discussant or moderator of book or paper panels. Please note LSA has a stringent "number of participations allowed" policy.Generally you are limited to only ONE participation as a paper presenter OR a roundtable participant. If you plan on being involved with the shadow conference, you must let us know if you are contemplating any other participation with the LSA conference so we can make sure you won't jeopardize our panel formation efforts. We will assume that, unless you tell us otherwise, you are using your "one substantive participation" with us. But if you're slated for something else, but still want to be a moderator or discussant, let us know as we might be able to work that out.
By Nov. 12th,
you must send Carissa (cc'd) and me:
a) an expression of interest that tells us what you'd like to do. paper panelist? book manuscript author? if so, on what subject (send us an abstract if possible)? can you also serve as discussant or moderator? let us know. (Please edit the subject of your email to read: LSA 2012 Crimprof Conference)
b) any limitations on the dates of your availability during the LSA. If we don't hear otherwise, we'll assume you're indifferent to the timing and day of the panel
Shortly after Nov. 12, we will get back to you all with a list of folks who will be your co-panelists. You'll have to each register with LSA but we will assign a panel organizer who will oversee the logistics and ensure things go smoothly. So, Carissa and I basically serve as matchmakers and we'll have a bit of a role in interfacing with LSA's Judy Rose to make sure the panels are going to occur roughly in the same room and not in conflict with each other.
