(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers)
The deadline for paper proposals for the 2d Annual Research Forum of the American Society of International Law has been extended till this coming Monday, April 23.
As we've posted here, here, and here, this next Research Forum will be part of ASIL's Midyear Meeting to be held October 20 and 21, 2012, at my home institution, the University of Georgia School of Law in Athens, northeast of Atlanta.
This is a great opportunity not only to visit a great city and network with ASIL Executive Council members and other fellow international lawyers, but also to have your paper presented on a panel including contributions on the same general topic. Each panel will be organized by an international law scholar serving as discussant.
(Also planned for the Midyear Meeting are a keynote speaker yet to be announced and, for colleagues in our region, the launch meeting of ASIL-Southeast, spearheaded by my Georgia Law colleague Harlan G. Cohen.)
As we've detailed in the posts noted above, and as is spelled out as well in the full call for papers, here're what's requested:
Please submit a 500-or-fewer-word abstract summarizing the scholarly paper you'd like to present at the Forum. See the call for papers re: contact information, etc., requested.
Papers can be on any topic related to international and transnational law and should be unpublished (for purposes of the call, publication to an electronic database such as SSRN is not considered publication). Interdisciplinary projects, empirical studies, and jointly authored papers are welcome.
Proposals should be submitted at the online form available here.
Conducting the blind review of proposals will be the Research Forum Committee: Co-chairs Laura Dickinson, an IntLawGrrls contributor and professor at George Washington Law, and my Georgia Law colleague Timothy L Meyer, along with IntLawGrrl Hari M. Osofsky (Minnesota) and our colleagues José Alvarez (NYU), Laurence Helfer (Duke), Máximo Langer (UCLA), and David Zaring (Wharton).
