Policing, Protesting, and Perceptions: A Critical Examination of the Events in Ferguson
The University of Missouri Law Review is issuing a call for proposals for an upcoming Works-in-Progress conference, which will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2015, in conjunction with the Missouri Law Review’s Symposium, which will take place the following day Friday, February 27, 2015.
The symposium, “Policing, Protesting, and Perceptions: A Critical Examination of the Events in Ferguson,” focuses on a number of issues that arose from the events in Ferguson, Missouri this past August following the shooting of Michael Brown.
Works-in-progress panels will be held related to the subject matter of the symposium. Presentation proposals should be no more than one page in length. The topic of the presentation can include analyses that are practical, theoretical or interdisciplinary in nature relating to what transpired in Ferguson, MO. Proposals from scholars outside the United States are also welcome, although prospective attendees should note that there is no funding available to assist participants with their travel expenses.
Proposal Deadline: November 15, 2014. Those interested may submit proposals and direct questions to Professor S. David Mitchell (MitchellSD[@]missouri.edu). Decisions regarding accepted proposals will be made by December 1, 2014.
