“We Must First Take Account”, a conference on Race, Law and History in the Americas solicits proposals from early career scholars and graduate students on subjects that include: How have ideas about race shaped the evolution of legal culture? How has law produced ideas about race? How has legal scholarship incorporated race into its analysis? How has law been allied with or an obstacle to movements for social change? What strategies can be used to carry out comparative studies of race, law, and history? We invite work across the Americas including North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Brazil.
Proposals of a 300-word abstract and short c.v. due by January 17, 2011 to: FirstTakeAccount@umich.edu with “Legal History Conference” in the subject line. Final papers due March 14, 2011. Support for presenters’ travel and lodging expenses will be available.
“We Must First Take Account” is sponsored by the University of Michigan Law School and the Legal History Consortium (University of Illinois College of Law, University of Michigan Law School, University of Minnesota Law School, and University of Pennsylvania Law School,) with generous support from the American Society for Legal History.
