Write On! I•CON explores citizenship

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.) Editors of the International Journal of Constitutional Law -- which goes by the snappy acronym of I•CON -- are seeking papers for a symposium edition on citizenship.
The focus of the symposium will be the "evolving concept of citizenship in constitutional law"; that is, "the constitutional dimensions of citizenship," approached by "exploring contemporary similarities between and differences among nation-states." Papers should address at least 1 of these themes:
► the effects of international law on national citizenship;
► citizenship in ethnically divided societies; and
► the effect of international migration on citizenship.
To submit an entry, send a 500-word abstract; a cover sheet including your name, institutional affiliation, and contact information; and your c.v. to law.icon@nyu.edu. Authors of abstracts that are chosen will be notified in early January and asked to produce a manuscript of 10,000–15,000 words, including footnotes, by June 1, 2009. Much nearer in time is the abstract-submission deadline: next Tuesday, November 4, 2008.
Questions? E-mail I•CON Managing Editor Karen L. Barrett, karen.barrett@nyu.edu
