October 12, 2012
Lexington, Virginia


Washington and Lee University School of Law’s Law and History Center, in partnership with Virginia Sea Grant, will host a symposium on Climate Change in the Former Colonies: Challenges of Property and History.

Recognizing the unique impact that the colonial legal experience continues to have on Eastern states, the symposium will focus on the application of legal historical research to contemporary problems and opportunities in the areas of policy-making, property rights, and hazard resilience in coastal communities. Panel presentations and potential topics include:

How the colonial legal experience affects modern property rights and our responsiveness to climate change
Historical and modern property doctrines—particularly nuisance, zoning, and eminent domain—and their relation to current climate change challenges and policies
Changing notions of acceptable land use and natural resources
Environmental hazard resilience policies and opportunities for their enhancement via legal strategies

We are open to suggestions of other related topics.

Publication details:

A collection of papers from the conference will be published as a volume of the Sea Grant Law and Policy Journal. Solid drafts of articles will be due October 1, 2012. We will solicit peer review comments and plan to return those around October 22nd. Final articles will be due November 16th with proofreading and cite checking to follow and publication in December or January.

Intellectual Property Workshop at IU – Indianapolis 

The Indiana University McKinney School of Law is pleased to announce this year’s Junior Faculty Workshop, on Intellectual Property Issues in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Scheduled for December 7 and 8, 2012, this two-day Workshop offers a unique opportunity for untenured scholars to present their draft scholarship for in-depth critique and commentary by respected senior scholars in the field. The Workshop is perfectly timed for junior faculty participants to revise their articles in time for a spring submission for publication. Indiana University will cover both travel and lodging expenses for all participants.

Any untenured scholars interested in participating in this intensive workshop should submit a detailed abstract or the first several pages of their articles, along with a brief CV, to Nic Terry (npterry@iupui.edu) or Emily Michiko Morris (emmmorri@iupui.edu), by June 22, 2012. Works already in progress are ideal for this workshop and will be given preference. Topics for the workshop may focus on any of a range of intellectual property issues as they relate to the pharmaceutical industry, broadly defined. Acceptable topics may therefore include, but are not limited to, issues involving patent and regulatory exclusivity; patent linkage; the Hatch-Waxman Act; the BPCIA; TRIPs; the Bayh-Dole Act; the AIA; public-private collaborations; and more.

Applicants should also submit the names of established scholars in their area of scholarship who would be able to provide meaningful commentary on their drafts. Junior faculty applicants selected for the workshop must commit to producing complete drafts of their articles well ahead of the workshop (i.e., before Halloween), so that senior faculty participants may have time to review them. Selected participants will be notified by July 1, 2012.

Culture, Community and Architecture Workshop: ‘The Architecture of Community’ 

Southampton Law School,
University of Southampton,
06 September, 2012

In our ordinary, everyday lives we travel in, through and around many places that may or may not appear particularly significant or important to us. Yet all of these places conceal and can reveal understandings of place whose meaning is created, constructed and contested. Institutional architecture, for example, whether legal, political or religious, combines and embodies two constitutive elements of architectural reality: it has instrumental use as a place for the public gathering or housing of a particular type of historic and living community; it also has symbolic value as a visual representation of a particular factual reality. It is a place where power is situated and represented. This full-day multidisciplinary workshop explores those complex relationships between culture, community and architecture that help define and organise our public space and how we use and experience that space.

Call For Papers

The workshop welcomes papers from a range of disciplines, including (but not limited to) law, politics, religion, architecture, philosophy, anthropology, ecology. Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome, as are both practical and theoretical contributions.

Suggested topics might include but are not limited to the following ideas:

1. Spatiality and social identity

2. Space and place – public and private – inclusion and exclusion

3. Institutional architecture – the design and use of architectural space

4. The construction of meaning through signs, symbols and other modes of communication

5. Architecture of governmentality, power and control

6. Environmental architecture - architectural design and ecological systems

If you are interested in speaking on a panel please send your proposed title, together with an abstract (150–300 words), to E.Nottingham@soton.ac.uk by 13th July 2012. Graduate students, academic staff and career professionals are all invited to submit. All abstract proposals should include the following:

Paper Title
Title, First Name, Surname and Affiliation of all authors
100 - 150 words biography of all authors
E-mail address for corresponding author
150–300 word abstract of paper

It is intended that there will be three panels during the day with up to four speakers on each, which includes one keynote speaker per panel. All speakers can expect to talk for about 20 minutes each, followed by discussion from the floor.

For further information, please contact:
Dr James MacLean, Southampton Law School, University of Southampton, Highfield, Southampton, SO17 1BJ. Email: J.Maclean@soton.ac.uk

Call for Papers 5th ESIL Biennial Conference: Interest Group Workshops 

5th ESIL Biennial Conference: Interest Group Workshops
13th September 2012, Valencia Spain

“Regionalism and Feminism: How regionalism impacts on women’s lives”


This is a call for papers for the interest group workshops that will take place on the morning of 13th September 2012 as part of the 5th ESIL Biennial Conference. The interest group on Feminism and International Law is organising a panel to consider the contribution feminist theory and methodology can make to questions raised by conference theme: regionalism and international law.
This meeting of the interest group on Feminism and International Law will provide participants with an opportunity to explore the impact of regionalism on women’s lives. In particular, participants will explore whether the fracture and fragmentation of international law is mirrored in the fragmentation of feminist thought. The question of whether a uniquely ‘European’ feminism exists – and the implications of this for women in Europe and beyond – is foremost in our minds. There will also be an opportunity in this session to look in depth at the meaning of regional legal institutions and tribunals, such as the European Court of Human Rights, to women’s lives.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words in English or French should be submitted directly to troy.lavers@le.ac.uk with the author’s title, contact information and organisational affiliation. The deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday 18th May 2012. We anticipate that scholars who contribute to the workshop maybe interested in publishing their papers jointly in a good quality peer reviewed journal, and publication plans will be discussed at the meeting.

Please note that is you wish to attend the meeting of the Feminism and International Law Interest Group you do not have to register for the full ESIL conference. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the panel for a discussion on future events of the interest group.

Call for Papers ‘Re-interpreting Blackstone’s Commentaries: the Evolution and Influence of a Seminal Text in National and International Context’ 

‘Re-interpreting Blackstone’s Commentaries: the Evolution and Influence of a Seminal Text in National and International Context’
A Symposium at the University of Adelaide, Thursday 6 December, 2012


Conceptualization

Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England, first published in Oxford in 1765-69, ran to eight editions in the author’s lifetime (he died in 1780), and has never since been out of print on either side of the Atlantic. Indeed it is arguable that the Commentaries is the most influential law book in the Anglo-American legal tradition. Now an international group of scholars (David Lemmings and Wilfrid Prest, University of Adelaide, Simon Stern, University of Toronto, T.P. Gallanis, University of Iowa, and Ruth Paley, History of Parliament Trust, London) has undertaken to produce a new edition of this seminal work.

As part of this project, which is also the starting point for a new history of law in eighteenth-century England, a one-day Symposium at the University of Adelaide will seek the views of international experts on the evolution and influence of Blackstone’s Commentaries in national and international context. The premise of this Symposium is that for understanding English law and governance in the eighteenth-century Atlantic world, the Commentaries is a central text, and Blackstone a pivotal figure.
The Organisers

David Lemmings, History and Politics, University of Adelaide.
Wilfrid Prest, Law/ History and Politics, University of Adelaide.
Keynote speakers:

John Cairns, University of Edinburgh
Paul Halliday, University of Virginia
Kathryn Temple, Georgetown University
Offers of Papers and Registration:

Abstracts of proposed papers (maximum 250 words), should reach Janet Hart by 31 July 2012.
The registration fee is AUS$75.00 for the salaried and AUS$50.00 for students and the unwaged (register via Registration Form) by Monday 5 November 2012).

Call for Papers “The Cultures and Institutions of Business” 

The Business History Conference invites proposals for its 2013 annual meeting, taking place March 21–23, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus hotel in Columbus, Ohio.

The theme of the annual meeting is “The Cultures and Institutions of Business.” We are interested in all topics embracing the culture of business and the business of culture. Papers may engage the ways in which cultural beliefs, values, practices, institutions, meanings, language, identities, habits, and cognition shape business orientation, governance, behavior, and performance in different geographical, historical, or social settings. Papers may also address the ways in which business has acted upon cultural practices and institutions, both high and popular culture, or how the language of business has entered into wider public discourses. Works might cover such matters as the business of entertainment and the arts or cultural differences (or conformity) in ideas and practices of management, accounting, human resources, scientific and technological research, and innovation.

In keeping with longstanding BHC policy, the Committee will also consider submissions not directly related to the conference theme.

The committee will consider both individual papers and entire panels. Individual paper proposals should include a one-page (300-word) abstract and one-page curriculum vitae (CV). Panel proposals should include a cover letter stating the rationale for the panel and the name of its contact person; one-page (300-word) abstract and author's CV for each paper; and a list of preferred panel chairs and commentators with contact information. Graduate students and recent Ph.D.s (within 3 years of receipt of degree) whose papers are accepted for the meeting may apply for funds to partially defray their travel costs; information will be sent out once the program has been set. Everyone appearing on the program is required to register for the meeting.

The deadline for receipt of all proposals is 1 October 2012. Acceptance letters will be sent by 20 December 2012. Presenters are expected to submit abstracts of their papers for posting on the BHC website. In addition, presenters are encouraged to post electronic versions of their papers prior to the meeting and to submit their papers for inclusion in the BHC's on-line proceedings, Business and Economic History On-Line.

Please send proposals for papers, panels, or the Krooss Prize to BHC2013@Hagley.org. If you do not have access to the internet, you may send hard copies to Roger Horowitz, Secretary-Treasurer, Business History Conference, P. O. Box 3630, Wilmington, DE 19807, USA. Phone: (302) 658-2400; fax: (302) 655-3188.
