Call for Papers: Critical Legal Conference

‘Catastrophe’ by Lala Gallardo

The 2017 edition of the Critical Legal Conference has issued its Call for Papers; this year the theme of the conference will be CATASTROPHE. Held at the Warwick Law School and Social Theory Centre at the University of Warwick between the 1st and 3rd of September, critical scholars from across the world will gather here to discuss their latest work on the subject matter. According to the conference:

Ten years ago, the so-called ‘Invisible Committee’ urged that ‘It is useless to wait…. To go on waiting is madness. The catastrophe is not coming, it is here. We are already situated within the collapse of a civilization. It is within this reality that we must choose sides.’ Over a decade before, Leonard Cohen had written; ‘This is the darkness, this is the flood. The catastrophe has already happened and the question we now face is what is the appropriate behaviour.’

Twenty-four research streams have been announced alongside the general stream. To apply, simply send your 200 word abstract by May 31st, 2017 to the appropriate stream organizer.
