2016 Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop is being cohosted by Columbia Law School, the University of Southern California Center for  Law, History & Culture, UCLA School of Law, and Georgetown University Law  School. The event will be held at the UCLA School of Law in Los Angeles, over June 6-7th, 2016. Submissions are due by January 4, 2016, sent to the Center for the Study of Law and Culture at culture@law.columbia.edu. The description of the paper competition to attend to workshop includes the following:

The paper competition is open to untenured professors, advanced graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars in law and the humanities; in addition to drawing from numerous humanistic fields, we welcome critical, qualitative work in the social sciences. Based on anonymous evaluation by an interdisciplinary selection committee, between five and ten papers will be chosen for presentation at the June Workshop. At the Workshop, two senior scholars will comment on each paper. Commentators and other Workshop  participants will be asked to focus specifically on the strengths and weaknesses of the selected scholarly projects, with respect to subject and methodology. The  selected papers will then serve as the basis for a larger conversation among all the participants about the evolving standards by which we judge excellence and creativity in interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as about the nature of interdisciplinarity itself.
