CFP: Feminist Legal Theory CRN at the Law and Society Association Annual Meeting-Due Sept 18th

    This year, I am on the planning committee for the Law and Society Feminist Legal Theory Collaborative Research Network (CRN).  The Feminist Legal Theory CRN seeks to bring together scholars across a range of fields who are interested in feminist legal theory. There is no pre-set theme to which papers must conform. We would be especially happy to see proposals that fit in with the LSA conference theme, which is the role of law and legal institutions in sustaining, creating, interrogating, and ameliorating inequalities.  The Law and Society Annual Meeting is in Minneapolis this year from May 29 to June 1, 2014.  We welcome proposals that would permit us to collaborate with other CRNs, such as the Critical Research on Race and the Law CRN or the Gender, Sexuality and the Law CRN. Also, because the LSA meeting attracts scholars from other disciplines, we welcome multidisciplinary proposals. 
    If you would like to present a paper as part of a CRN panel (preferably a work-in-progress), please submit a 400-500 word abstract, with your name and a title, on the Feminist Legal Theory CRN TWEN page (details below).  If you would like to serve as a chair or a commentator for one of our panels, or if you are already planning a LSA session with four panelists (and papers) that you would like to see included in the Feminist Legal Theory CRN, please let Rachel Rebouche know ([email protected]). 
    If you have Westlaw OnePass as a faculty member, follow this link:
http://lawschool.westlaw.com/shared/courselink.asp?course=113601&lID=4%3D2, then click on the link to the Feminist Legal Theory CRN TWEN page.  Or, sign onto Westlaw, hit the tab on the top for “TWEN,” then click “Add Course,” and choose the “Feminist Legal Theory” CRN from the drop-down list of National TWEN Courses.  Once you arrive at the Feminist Legal Theory CRN TWEN page, look to the left hand margin and click on “Law & Society 2014 – Abstracts.”  If you do not have a Westlaw password, please email me at [email protected], and I can add your abstract submission directly for consideration.
    Please submit all proposals for paper presentations by Wednesday, September 18, 2013. This will permit us to organize panels and submit them prior to the LSA’s deadline on October 15. If we cannot accept all proposals for the CRN, we will notify you by early October so that you can submit an independent proposal to LSA.
