As we wrote on September 9th, the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities is being held in Hartford, Connecticut over April 1-2, 2016. The Association has recently released its details for its vaunted annual Graduate Student Workshop, to be held on March 31, 2016, the day before the conference. Those accepted to participate in the workshop will be provided with partial reimbursement for their travel and accommodations. Keep in mind that though the Association has not yet updated its submission page, the submission details for the workshop provided by its organizers Professors Mark Antaki (McGill) and Linda Meyer are as follows:

Graduate students who are considering coming to the ASLCH conference, April 1-2nd 2016, at the University of Connecticut Law School are invited to apply for the graduate student workshop that will occur one day earlier on March
31st (see http://law2.syr.edu/academics/centers/lch/graduate_student_workshop.html for application details)

The workshop has two primary aims: first, to afford graduate students the opportunity to experience the LCH community in a smaller venue with more sustained contact with one another and some faculty; second, to provide graduate students with an opportunity to present their own work in anticipation of such things as job talks and publication.

Applications to the workshop should include a current curriculum vitae, a 5-page maximum abstract of a current project, as well as a short (5-page maximum) “text” relating to that project. This “text” could be a case, literary work, time-line, photo, sound or video file or whatever source-“text” will help the workshop participants reflect on the subject of their work. Use your judgment and best guesses in deciding how audio, visual, or audio-visual materials “translate” into pages of text.

Applicants whose proposals are accepted will receive support towards an extra night’s accommodation by ASLCH as well as support (varying, depending on distance traveled) towards the cost of transportation to the conference site.

Send your applications to both Linda Meyer (linda.meyer46@yahoo.com) and Mark Antaki (mark.antaki@mcgill.ca). For inquiries, please write to one or both of us.
