CFP Deadline: COVID-19 Infodemic – Between Law, Ethics and Fake News
Dec 10 all-day
CFP Deadline: COVID-19 Infodemic - Between Law, Ethics and Fake News

Two special issues of International Journal for the Semiotics of Law and a special issue of Comparative Legilinguistics will be dedicated to Infodemic – Between Law, Ethics and Fake News.

The 2020 pandemic of Covid-19 virus struck the globalized world unexpectedly, resulting in the misleading predictions of fatalities information chaos and fake news. Aware of the consequential impact of distortions and half-truths, the World Health Organization stresses that societies suffer not only as a direct result of disease, social-distancing but also over-abundance of information that makes it hard for people to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance. The spread of rumors and misinformation has been possible also due to the prevalence of distance communication methods which enable publication of anything without
any limits or peer review as verification. Such pieces of news, if skillfully posted, may reach enormous numbers of people causing harm and unpredictable consequences.

Abstracts are due December 10, 2021. Submissions may be in English or French and should be sent to aleksandra.matulewska@gmail.com, valwagnerfr@yahoo.com, and marusek@hawaii.edu.

The Conference, held in coordination with the Association of Urban Legal Scholars (AULS), will include opportunities to engage urban pedagogy across diverse perspectives. The conference will also highlight local perspectives and experiences for a grounded understanding of Vancouver’s dynamic urban legal context. The Conference has long facilitated engagement across legal academic sub-specialties and across legal systems internationally to enrich our understanding of urban law and we look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver.

PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Please submit a proposal of up to 500 words to urbanlaw@fordham.edu with “[Name of Proposed Paper, First Name, Last Name]” in the subject line of your email. If you have a draft paper, please include it with your proposal, but participants do not need to have prepared a paper to participate.

Limited funding is available to offset costs for those who would otherwise not be able to participate in person, including scholars from the Global South, early career scholars, and graduate students. Please indicate in your application whether your participation is conditional on receiving funding.

Please note that the conference is being planned as an in-person event at UBC. However, if the status of the COVID-19 pandemic restricts international travel or compromises safety as we head into July 2022, the conference will be adjusted for a virtual format. We are also considering hybrid sessions for scholars who will not be able to join us in person.
