We are currently seeking abstracts for a research seminar that forms part of the activities organized by Professor Marcelo Neves, the current ASRF Visiting Senior Research Fellow (January-July 2014). The seminar consists of three lectures given by Prof. Hans Lindahl (Tilburg University), Mariana Mota Prado (Univerity of Toronto) and David Restrepo Amariles (Université Libre de Bruxelles), and communications given by the selected postgrad students and postdoc researchers.
Theme: Latin American Constitutionalism: between Law and Politics
Date: 2 July 2014
Location: University Of Glasgow
Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should include the title of the paper to be presented and the name of the speaker. Abstracts submitted must relate to the theme of the seminar but it is expected that the paper will speak to their ongoing research. This may include, but is not limited to, the connection of constitutionalism with criminal, public, international and private law in Latin America; moral, historical, political and philosophical aspects of constitutionalism in Latin America, etc.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday 19 May 2014. Please email abstracts to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Speakers will be informed of their selection by Monday 26 may. Participants are expected to submit full papers by Monday 23 June to allow for a fuller discussion. These papers must be at least 2000 words long but not longer than 10,000 words.
Initially, participants should be prepared to speak for no more than 20 minutes, but it can be changed/adapted depending on the number of selected papers. There will be time for questions from the audience after each panel. Please indicate any media requirements you have for the presentation. If you are interested in doing something outwith the panel format, please explain your proposal clearly (including technical and space requirements) so we can schedule it appropriately.
There will be no registration fee but selected speakers will have to cover travel and accommodation expenses.
