The Canadian Law and Society Association/Association canadienne droit et société, its organizational co-sponsors the Association for Canadian Studies in Australia and New Zealand and the Australia and New Zealand Law and History Society, and the several co-sponsoring faculties and institutes are now inviting paper and panel submissions for the Law's Empire conference, scheduled for 25-30 June 2005 at Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada.
This meeting, to be held in a mountain and lake resort setting 125 kilometers east of Vancouver, is open to a wide range of subjects and themes in law and society scholarship. We especially encourage contributions that focus on law and empire in the contemporary and historical contexts of globalization, (neo)colonialism, citizenship, nationhood, constitutionality and human rights, and/or work that emphasizes comparative literatures being developed in relation to socio-legal issues in Canada and the Antipodes.
