American University Washington College of Law hosts the Fourteenth Annual LatCrit (Latina and Latino Critical Legal Theory, Inc.) Conference on October 1-4, 2009. The theme of this year’s conference is Outsiders Inside: Critical Outside Theory and Praxis in the Policymaking of the New American Regime. The Seventh Annual Junior Faculty Development Workshop, sponsored jointly with the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT), will take place concurrently with the conference.
The LatCrit XIV Host Committee invites the submission of proposals for panels and papers propounding prescriptive critiques of discrete areas of law, policy and regulation of specific relevance to outsider communities, including (but by no means limited to) economic justice, international and comparative law, criminal law and the death penalty, civil rights and constitutional law (including gender and LGBT equality, reproductive and disability rights), immigration, political and electoral (dis)enfranchisement, communications policy and intellectual property, healthcare, education, employment, tax policy, and the environment.
Please submit panel and paper proposals through the online process at the LatCrit website no later than April 27, 2009. For full information and submission protocols, please refer to the call for papers and panels.
