Law and Society Association Annual Meeting
Minneapolis, May 29 - June 1, 2014
The Aging, Law, and Society Critical Research Network (CRN) invites scholars to participate in a multi-panel workshop sponsored by the CRN as part of the Law and Society Associationís 2014 Annual Meeting. The Aging, Law, & Society CRN brings together scholars from across various disciplines to share research and ideas about the relationship between law and aging. Specifically, the CRN is intended to create opportunities for scholars to think about and discuss how the law responds to the needs of people as they age, as well as how law shapes the aging experience.
This year, the CRN will sponsor two primary types of panels at the annual meeting: (1) themed panel presentations on topics selected by the programming committee; and (2) workshops in in which scholars can share works-in-progress on a wide range of aging-related topics and receive feedback from an assigned commentator.
Accordingly, the CRN encourages paper proposals on a broad range of issues related to law and aging. However, we especially encourage proposals on the following topics:
The conference theme: the role of law and legal institutions in sustaining, creating, interrogating, and ameliorating inequalities;
∑ Caregiving; and
∑ Comparative approaches to elder law and old-age policy.
In addition to paper proposals, we also welcome:
Ideas and proposals for themed panels: In particular, please email Nina Kohn at email@example.com if you are already planning a panel that you would like to have featured as part of the Aging, Law, and Society CRN; and
∑ Volunteers to serve as commentators on works-in-progress.
If you would like to present a paper as part of a the CRNís programming, please send a 400-500 word abstract, with your name, full contact information, and a paper title to both Nina Kohn (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Nancy Knauer (email@example.com). Please indicate the stage at which the paper will be, or is expected to be, in May of 2014.
Please submit all proposals for paper presentations by no later than Friday, September 27, 2013. Earlier submissions are encouraged and appreciated.
