Workshop on Transnational Perspectives for Equality Law

June 22-24, 2014 | Washington, D.C.

We are seeking proposals for presentations and papers for the 2014 Mid-Year Workshop on Transnational Perspectives for Equality Law. The workshop will be held on June 22-24, 2014 in Washington, DC at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel. The workshop will begin with registration at 4:00 p.m. and a reception at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 22 and conclude at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24. It will appeal to a wide range of teachers and scholars interested in these and related subject areas.

ll for Presentations and Papers

The Workshop will feature several plenary panels. These panels will address the following themes and subjects: the relevance of foreign law in the U.S. constitutional interpretation; the rise of quotas as a policy tool to achieve race and gender balance in legislatures, workplaces, and institutions of higher learning; a comparative assessment of disparate impact doctrine or indirect discrimination; a comparative analysis of secularism and religious tolerance; modalities and methodologies for teaching transnational law in U.S. law schools.

The Workshop Planning Committee seeks proposals for presentations and papers on any of the Workshop themes or on relevant issues at the intersection of transnational perspectives and equality law. Selected papers will be presented in one of two concurrent sessions on Tuesday June 24, 2014 between 10:30 A.M. – 12:00 P.M. For these concurrent sessions we are seeking proposals that are in various stages of development. We expect to select three or four presentations for each of the concurrent sessions. Each presentation will be about 15 minutes, followed by questions from the moderator and the audience.

Interested faculty members should submit a brief written description (no more than 1000 words) of the proposed presentation or paper, along with their résumés. Please email these materials to by Friday, December 20, 2013.
