Conference: 'Anticipating Law: The prognostics of fear and hope', 19-21 September 2017

Professor Julia Eckert, Miia Halme-Tuomisaari, David Loher and Tobias Eule are organising a conference on “Anticipating Law: The Prognostics of Fear and Hope”, 19-21 September 2017, in Bern, Switzerland. Here is the Call for Papers: 

With calling for papers that engage with the theme of “Anticipating law” we mean to call into view both anticipations of law, that is the hopes and fears people put into law, and anticipatory laws, that is the attempt to legally regulate the future. Both anticipations of law and anticipatory laws, we hold, are shaped by fear and hope as different forms of anticipation.

The call for papers is open. Abstracts should be submitted by 1 March 2017 and full papers are expected by 1 September 2017. For submission of abstracts and queries contact Julia Eckert, julia.eckert@anthro.unibe.ch David Loher david.loher@anthro.unibe.ch.

For more information, see attachment.

International Meeting on Law and Society, Mexico City, 20-23 June 2017

The Law and Society Association and the Research Committee on the Sociology of Law are together organising an international meeting on law and society in Mexico City, June 20-23, 2017. The theme of the meeting is 'Walls, Borders, and Bridges: Law and Society in an Inter-Connected World'. 

Walls and bridges:  exclusion and inclusion.  Everybody recognizes these two contradictory themes; they have a big role today in national politics, and national law; in international politics, and international law.  A famous old statement had it that all politics is local; but today, all politics is, in some sense, global.  If country A wants to close its borders, and close back in on itself, it is because it is reacting to turmoil outside its boundaries.  Today, no wall can ever be high enough to shut out the forces that are shaping life in the 21st century, for better or for worse. 

We think our field can help us understand that world, what makes it tick, where it has been, and where it is going.  Our theme focuses on walls, borders, and bridges.  But of course, we welcome all studies of law and society; empirical studies, no matter how small, no matter how local, can be tiles that fit into a larger mosaic; and many of these studies will be relevant to our theme, even when this relevance is a bit hard to see.

Deadline for submission is October 18, 2016. For more information, visit the LSA webpage
