Write On! Papers sought on military @ home
(Write On! is an occasional item on notable calls for papers.) The National Security Law section of the Association of American Law Schools is seeking "essays and article-length papers" discussing "the general theme of the military's domestic role." Section chair Robert M. Chesney notes within that topic that are "a range of issues"; examples include detention, emergency response, surveillance, posse comitatus, homeland defense, and civilian-military relations. The winner of the call will present at a panel at the AALS' annual meeting next January in New York and will be published in the National Security Law Report and in the Journal of National Security Law & Policy. Deadline is August 15; details are here.
