REMINDER: Comparative Legal History (the Official ESCLH Journal)


The European Society for Comparative Legal History (ESCLH) and Hart Publishing (UK) now publish Comparative Legal History (CLH), an international and comparative review of law and history, the official journal of the ESCLH

The journal will be published, both online and in print, twice a year, appearing in the spring and the autumn. The first issue will appear in Spring 2013:

Articles will explore both 'internal' legal history (doctrinal and disciplinary developments in the law) and 'external' legal history (legal ideas and institutions in wider contexts). Rooted in the complexity of the various Western legal traditions worldwide, the journal will also investigate other laws and customs from around the globe. Comparisons may be either temporal or geographical and both legal and other law-like normative traditions will be considered. Scholarship on comparative and trans-national historiography, including trans-disciplinary approaches, is particularly welcome.

The Editors welcome scholarly submissions in the English language:

To submit an article please contact Articles Editor Heikki Pihlajamäki (heikki.pihlajamaki@helsinki.fi). The optimal length for articles is between 7500 to 15000 words, including footnotes. All articles are submitted to double blind peer review.

To propose a review, please contact Reviews Editor Agustin Parise (agustin.parise@maastrichtuniversity.nl). Book reviews will generally range from 1500 to 2500 words. Review articles will also be considered.

The Hart website also has information on the Editors (both the Editorial Staff and International Editorial Board), an Email alert service of the 'Table of Contents', and subscription information. 

Note that a special arrangement between the ESCLH and Hart has been made to ensure that, beginning next year, ESCLH membership fees will include a subscription to CLH.

Potential contributors should pay special attention to the ‘Notes for Contributors on the website. In particular, contributors whose first language is not English are strongly advised to have their papers edited by native Anglophone scholars in advance of their submission to ensure a clear presentation of their ideas and an accurate appraisal of their work.

Spread the word.

CALL FOR PAPERS: XIXth European Forum of Young Legal Historians: "(Wo)Men in Legal History" (15-18 May 2013, Lille/Ghent)


The call for papers for the upcoming XIXth European Forum for Young Legal Historians is online on the AYLH website. The county of Flanders will host the conference in its cities of Lille (in France from 1667 on) and Ghent (Kingdom of Belgium).

This year, -as the rather Rubensian blindfolded lady, holding the balance of justice between the sexes, indicates- the conference focuses on gender and the law. Although this subject is quite catch-all in itself, the organizers emphasise that separate contributions are welcome as well. Contributions will be published in a double blind peer-reviewed volume of the Iuris Scripta Historica-series (Legal History Committee of the Royal Flemish Academy of Sciences, Arts and Literature).

Participants can submit a proposal until 31 January 2013. Fees will be € 80 (speakers) or € 100 (passive attendants).

Practical information of this double-headed, binational, but mono-county event (hotel bookings, travel, events) will be published on the websites of the Legal History Institute (Ghent) and the Centre d'Histoire Judiciaire (Lille 2).

CALL FOR PAPERS: The History and Politics of Abortion (paper collection)

CFP: The History and Politics of Abortion

An edited collection by Tracy Penny Light and Shannon Stettner

Women’s bodies have always been sites of struggle – over meanings and for control.  The most polarizing conflicts involve women’s reproductive autonomy.  Around the world women continue to fight for or to retain hard won abortion rights.  Women’s experiences with abortion are contested by and between the medical establishment, the state, churches, the media, and activists.  Further complicating these conflicts are issues of race, class, gender, and heteronormativity.  This collection seeks to publish works on the history and politics of abortion worldwide.  We invite theoretical, country-specific, and transnational comparative pieces.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

-Shifting (historical/political) meanings of abortion
-The place of women in abortion politics/history
-Historical constructions of the fetus
-“Pro-choice” and “pro-life” activism
-Reproductive justice movement
-The role of the state in abortion politics
- The role of the medical profession in abortion politics
-The influence of medical advancements on abortion politics/history
-Abortion and sexuality

Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words and a one-page CV to Tracy Penny Light. Article abstracts due November 30, 2012.
Tracy Penny Light is Director of Women’s Studies at the University of Waterloo and Associate Professor in the Sexuality, Marriage, and Family Studies and History departments at St. Jerome’s University (University of Waterloo).  Her research explores the medical discourse on gender and sexuality in Canada and the United States in the twentieth century.  Her forthcoming book, Shifting Interests: The Medical Discourse on Abortion in English Canada, 1850-1969 (Wilfrid Laurier University Press) explores the ways that the medical profession has understood abortion practices in the past.  She has published articles on masculinity and the feminine ideal in Canada and the United States as well as on developing historical thinking in students.  She is also co-editing two forthcoming books: Bodily Subjects: Essays on Gender and Health, 1800-2000 (with Wendy Mitchinson and Barbara Brookes) and a book on feminist pedagogy in higher education (with Jane Nicholas and Renee Bondy).

Shannon Stettner recently defended her dissertation, Women and Abortion in English Canada: Public Debates and Political Participation, 1959-1970, at York University and is under contract to revise the manuscript for publication (Wilfrid Laurier University Press). The book explores women’s contributions to the abortion law reform debate of the decade.  She has published in the Canadian Bulletin of Medical History and is currently editing a volume of abortion narratives and think pieces entitled Voices on Choice(s): Reflections on Abortion in Canada.

CALL FOR PAPERS: International conference on craftsmen and guilds in the medieval and early modern periods (University of Luxembourg, 12-14 September 2013)

What: International conference on craftsmen and guilds in the medieval and early modern periods
Where: University of Luxembourg
When: 12-14 September 2013
Deadline: 23 November 2012

The subject of craftsmen and their institutions looks back on two centuries of research tradition, but it has long been caught up in clichés such as the guilds’ supposed backwardness and exclusiveness. In the course of the last years a paradigmatic shift has increasingly emphasised the guilds’ dynamics and social mobility. This has opened the way to a series of new studies and research questions, but currently there is no institutional framework to facilitate a systematic exchange on the subject.
The conference, which is organised by the History Department of the University of Luxemburg and the research project “Villux”, wants to provide a dialogue board for young and more experienced researchers to present their approaches to the exploration of guilds and craftsmen on an international level. Moreover, it aims at the exchange of medieval and early modern historians, and thus expressly encourages contributions on the latter period.
The conference focuses on socio-historical perspectives. It is especially interested in papers which take up the new approach of researchers such as Claire Dolan, Josef Ehmer, Philippe Minard, Simona Cerutti and Steve Kaplan who lay new emphasise on the heterogeneity of guilds by analysing not simply their institutional framework, but the different strategies of their members generating this framework.
Potential topics are:
- social capital and social strategies of craftsmen
- guilds and social cohesion: personal relations inside and outside of guilds
- crafts and women
- functions of guilds
- living conditions and economic situation of craftsmen
- crafts and their spatial arrangement in urban environments
- supraregional exchange and mobility
The conference will take place from September 12th-14th 2013 at the University of Luxemburg. Presentations should be limited to 30 minutes and should preferably be given in English, but contributions in German and French will also be considered. Abstracts of no longer than 300 words and a short CV can be submitted to Eva Jullien (eva.jullien@uni.lu) by Novembre 23d.
Travel and accommodation costs can be partly subsidised by the organisers.

CALL FOR PAPERS: LOEWE-Workshop for Young Scholars: “Canon Law, Moral Theology and Conflict Resolution in the Early Modern Period” (MPIER, Frankfurt a.M, 28 February-1 March 2013)


What: LOEWE-Workshop for Young Scholars:“Canon Law, Moral Theology and Conflict Resolution in the Early Modern Period"
Where: Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History, Frankfurt am Main
 
When: 28 February-1 March 2013
 
Deadline: 15 November 2012

 
The past decade has seen an increasing interest among legal historians, jurists, philosophers, theologians and historians of economic thought in canon law and moral theology in the early modern period, e.g. the School of Salamanca. Therefore, the LOEWE-Junior Research Group would like to invite young scholars working in these fields to the Max-Planck-Institute for Legal History for a workshop and dialogue among peers.


The workshop will be organized from 28 February through 1 March 2013 at the Max-Planck-Institute for Legal History in Frankfurt am Main. The main idea behind the workshop is to bring together doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers working on dispute settlement in the early modern period, late scholasticism, canon law, moral theology or similar topics. The workshop is intended to be international and interdisciplinary in nature, so that a dialogue which goes beyond national and disciplinary frontiers can be created. Participants will have 30 minutes to present their research, followed by an open discussion of half an hour.

Candidates are invited to apply for the workshop until 15 November 2012. Travel expenses and accommodation will be covered by the organization. Please send a CV along with a short description of your research project to Dr Wim Decock, LOEWE Research Group Leader (decock@rg.mpg.de ). Presentations can be made in German or in English. For further questions and enquiries, do not hesitate to contact Dr Wim Decock.

To foster dialogue among participants, successful applicants will be expected to submit a paper or at least a detailed table of contents and an abstract of their research project by 1 February 2013.

CALL FOR PAPERS: 'Bartolus de Saxoferrato and the legal as well as political thought of the Renaissance' (Sassoferrato, Istituto Internazionale di Studi Piceni)


Every summer the Istituto Internazionale di Studi Piceni runs a conference on humanistic subjects at Sassoferrato (between Perugia and Ancona). It lasts for a week, of which Sun.-Wed. is taken up with seminars, Wed.-Sat. with papers. The atmosphere is relaxed and convivial. In 2013 the starting date is June 30th. 

The seminars, in 2013 on satire ('La satira dall'antichità all'Umanesimo'), are designed for students at roughly doctoral level, and grants are offered that cover bed and board. Students who wish to attend and receive a grant should have enough Italian to profit from both the seminars and the papers. Up to three grants will be available for students from the U. K. and the Republic of Ireland; applications or inquiries should be sent as soon as possible, but in any event by the end of November 2012, to Professor Michael Reeve (mdr1000@cam.ac.uk).

Papers, which can be given in any of the main European languages, should not exceed 20 minutes. In 2013 the topic of the conference is 'Bartolo da Sassoferrato e il pensiero giuridico e politico nel Rinascimento', but other humanistic topics can be accommodated, especially if they concern the Marche (Picenum). Papers are published in Studi Umanistici Piceni, which has a fine record of appearing promptly. Anyone from the U. K. or the Republic of Ireland who would like to give a paper should get in touch with Michael Reeve (as above) by the end of November 2012.'

Deadline call for papers: 15 December 2012.

"New Worlds of Faith" will explore the ways that religion and law have functioned in the Americas, from colonial periods through 2000. Although we do not intend to limit proposals by such examples, we would be interested in papers on witchcraft prosecutions, citizenship and religious identity, protections (or not) for religious speech and worship, legal repression of indigenous faiths, and so on. The conference will focus on showcasing the work primarily of junior scholars, including both graduate students and untenured faculty, although senior scholars' work will also be welcome. This conference, one of a series begun in 2007, is co-sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Law School and History Department, the University of Minnesota, University of Illinois, and University of Michigan Law Schools, and the University of Chicago History Department.

Interested participants should submit a proposal of no more than 300 words, in Word format, accompanied by a cv of no more than 3 pages. While proposals for entire panels will also be accepted for consideration, they are by no means required. All proposals are due by 15 December 2012. Applicants will be notified by email no later than 1 February 2013 whether their proposals have been accepted for presentation. No previously published work will be accepted, as the conference is designed to provide a forum for productive and supportive discussion of works in progress.

Accepted participants will be required to submit a full paper, in Word format, of no more than 10,000 words by 1 May 2013. All papers will be pre-circulated on a password-protected website, and read by all participants. While the convenors cannot promise to meet all travel expenses for each participant, there will be a modest travel and accommodations budget provided for all presenters and commentators. The convenors are also interested in hearing from senior scholars who may be interested in commenting or chairing panels.

All proposals and expressions of interest should be sent to Anna Gavin, Faculty Events Coordinator, agavin@law.upenn.edu.
