CFP: The Law and the Child in Historical Perspective, 1400-2000 (Minneapolis, 1-2 June 2014)

What: Conference on "The Law and the Child in Historical Perspective, 1400-2000"

Where:University of Minnesota Law School, 229 19th Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN 55455

When: June 1-2, 2014




Deadline for proposals (300 words): December 20, 2013


The study of the history of children, youth and childhood has grown dramatically in the last two decades, making age a new category of historical analysis. The Law and the Child will focus on law's central role in changing understandings of childhood and children's experiences, considering among other things selfhood, family, market relations, society, and state. Our hope is for a broad reach geographically and chronologically, from the Medieval World to the Twenty-First Century, and for papers that consider the multiple sources that intersect in thelegal construction of childhood and in children's lived legal experiences. These include race, class, gender, disability, sexuality, ethnicity, psychology, dependency, agency, citizenship, and (il)legitimacy. We also hope papers will address topics in both civil and criminal law. The conference, one of a series begun in 2007, isintended to showcase the work of junior scholars working the field of legal history and to bring them into conversation with senior scholars. 


It is co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota Law School and History Department, the Childhood and Youth Studies Across the Disciplines IAS Research Collaborative at the University of Minnesota, the Indiana University School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School and History Department, the University of Illinois College of Law, the University of Michigan Law School, and the University of Chicago Department of History.

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 to Barbara Welke at welke004@umn.edu. All proposals are due by 20 December 2013. 
Applicants will be notified by email no later than 17 February 2014 whether their proposals have been accepted for presentation. No previously published work will be accepted, as the conference isdesigned 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 2014. All papers will be pre-circulated on a password-protected website, and read by all participants. 
A modest travel and accommodations budget will be provided for all presenters.

CONFERENCE: Graduate Conference "Bringing the Law back into history" (Cambridge, Trinity Hall, 16 December 2013)

Dr. William O'Reilly (Cambridge/Harvard) and Tom Toëlle (Princeton) host a Graduate Conference on the relationship between law and history, next December. The Call, specifically aimed at young legal historians (preferably with a background in history, graduate student level) reads as follows:

We cordially invite young historians with an interest in legal categories in historical analysis to partake in our Graduate Workshop 2013: ‘Bringing the law back into history’, which will take place on 16 December at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. The workshop will provide a forum to critically engage with the role of law in recent historiography and to discuss different approaches to legal categories in your own research.

Frontispiece Corvinus Ivrispruvdentia Romana
            Legal history (as a history of the role of law in early modern politics) witnesses a revival: from historians of early modern slavery, over those who study political crime or humanitarian intervention to scholars, who seek new ways to study the history of empire. The methodological concepts of a more and more border-crossing cultural history – from ‘encounter’ and ‘translation’ to ‘hybridity’ and ‘croisée’ – seem to gain inspiration from legal cases. The overlapping legal spheres of early modern Europe, its contested imperial viceroyalties and plantations, its rivalling networks of trade, and the ways in which it sought to impose ‘its law’ onto a world with its own dynamic and controversial legal traditions are increasingly becoming subject of enquiry.
            The organizers, Dr William O’Reilly (Cambridge University) and Tom Tölle (Princeton University) invite contributions by a limited number of European graduate students for a workshop with plenty of room for discussion. We would like you to systematically think about the role that legal knowledge, practices of law-making, the transfer or translation of legal knowledge, and the definition of deviance and resistance to these definitions had for the societies under consideration. We seek to bring together a group of students working on chronologically and regionally varied areas of expertise to engage with the question: What effects could bringing the law back into history have for the profession.
            We invite you to explore if and how legal categories can be fruitfully studied in different areas of enquiry. Papers will be circulated in advance and presentations limited to 15 minutes. Comments on each paper will tease out the main implications; discussions between the contributors compare the cases, while a final panel will summarize the outcome of a day’s work. The workshop is supported by the University of Cambridge. Travel expenses, accommodation (15-16 Dec), and meals for a limited number of speakers can be covered.
            If you are interested in presenting your research at this event, you are invited to submit a preliminary title for your paper and an abstract of c. 500 words by 5 November. The papers for circulation, which can be in a ‘presentation style’, should reach the organizers (ttoelle@princeton.edu) no later than 9 December and will be distributed to the group the week before the conference.
We would be delighted to receive your proposals as soon as possible and thank you in advance for your contributions.

We are very much looking forward to receiving your applications.

BOOK: Iniuria and the Common Law

E. Descheemaeker and H. Scott (ed. by), Iniuria and the Common Law, Oxford: Hart Publishing, 2013 
 
Abstract by the editor:
"The delict of iniuria is among the most sophisticated products of the Roman legal tradition. The original focus of the delict was assault, although iniuria-literally a wrong or unlawful act-indicated a very wide potential scope. Yet it quickly grew to include sexual harassment and defamation, and by the first century CE it had been re-oriented around the concept of contumelia so as to incorporate a range of new wrongs, including insult and invasion of privacy. In truth, it now comprised all attacks on personality.
It is the Roman delict of iniuria which forms the foundation of both the South African and-more controversially-Scots laws of injuries to personality. On the other hand, iniuria is a concept formally alien to English law. But as its title suggests, this book of essays is representative of a species of legal scholarship best described as 'oxymoronic comparative law', employing a concept peculiar to one legal tradition in order to interrogate another where, apparently, it does not belong. Addressing a series of doctrinal puzzles within the law of assault, defamation and breach of privacy, it considers in what respects the Roman delict of iniuria overlaps with its modern counterparts in England, Scotland and South Africa; the differences and similarities between the analytical frameworks employed in the ancient and modern law; and the degree to which the Roman proto-delict points the way to future developments in each of these three legal systems.

Helen Scott is an Associate Professor in the Department of Private Law at the University of Cape Town".

CONFERENCE: "Utrecht 1713: A Peace for the World" (Paris, 24-26 October; Paris-Sorbonne, Bordeaux-III and Pompeu Fabra Universities)


The 300th anniversary of the Peace of Utrecht (11 April 1713) has triggered exhibitions and conferences around the globe (see earlier on this blog). This month, a final international gathering of scholars, organised by the universities of Paris-Sorbonne, Bordeaux-III and Pompeu Fabra, will take place in Paris (24-26 October), at the Archives Diplomatiques, the Colegio de España and the Sorbonne.

On the agenda: the model of the peace conference, established at Westphalia, negotiation practices, interactions amongst diplomats and the elaboration of a cosmopolitan sociability, the global impact of the peace on the overseas possessions of the Spanish monarchy, the Asiento de Negros or black slave trade, the elaboration and functioning of news networks and, last but not least, the legal infrastructure of the treaty system.

Scholars from France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, the United States and Belgium, among which the most eminent names in the field, will present their findings and interpretations. Although the historiography of the War of the Spanish Succession has a long pedigree in different national traditions, every generation of scholars engages in a distinct dialogue with the sources.

Program and practical information (in French) can be found here.

CFP: 2014 ESCLH CONFERENCE!

What: 2014 ESCLH CONFERENCE: Traditions and changes
Where: University of Macerata
When: July 8-9, 2014
 
Deadline: January 1, 2014
 
 
 
Dear freinds of the ESCLH,
as some of you may already know, the 2014 ESCLH Conference will take place in Macerata, Italy, from the 8th to the 9th July 2014. This is for all of us a very special event and you are wormly invited to submit your papers. More information on this event (location, programme, hotels and registration) will follow.

Organization

The European Society of Comparative Legal History Conference in 2014 is organized by the Department of Law, University of Macerata

 
 
Call for papers
The European Society for Comparative Legal History (ESCLH) – founded in 2009 – continues to highlight and promote the comparison of legal ideas and legal institutions across different national juridical fields. Following the second ESCHL Conference held at Amsterdam VU University (2012) dedicated to "Definitions and Challenges", the third ESCHL Conference will take place on 8-9 July 2014 in Macerata (Italy) and will be hosted by the University of Macerata. Under the heading "Traditions and changes" the Conference will develop a theme which is integral part of the challenges of comparative legal history.

Members of legal history and comparative law networks share an important and paradigm-challenging reflection on the concept of legal tradition. This concern blends skills and disciplines, such as the legal, social and historical perspectives in an attempt to understand law and how it changes.

The conference would like to encourage scholars to use the comparative-historical approach for working on the complex concepts of ‘tradition’ and ‘change’, both separately and in correlation. This aim raises several questions. What do we think is tradition? How is it made up, how is it ‘built’ or ‘invented’? How does it relate to concepts like recollections, historical store-room, juridical experience, legal culture, legal system? What does a tradition help, why and how is it used to promote or, on the contrary, to reject changes and transformations? Is tradition a synonym of ‘past’ and is change a synonym of ‘future’? Or instead does a dialectic prevail which can, at times, unite or separate tradition and change?
What role do jurists and doctrine carry on in this field?

Reference to traditions and changes helps us better use comparative legal history, opening up not just what happened, but why it did. In doing so we must reflect not only on categories as such but also on how they are used. We know that power and every legally relevant public or private institution has the tendency to legitimise itself making recourse to values such as tradition or rationalisation (understood also as an incentive to change). Two recent examples will suffice: the growing use of polyvalent categories like that of "western legal tradition" (both in the singular and the plural) or that, more recent, of "common constitutional traditions".

The Conference welcomes proposals on any area of comparative legal history which relate to the theme of "Traditions and changes".

The starting keynote address will be delivered by Michael Stolleis, Professor emeritus of public law and history of modern law at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, former Director of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History. The final keynote address will be given by Lauren Benton, Professor of History, Silver Professor, Affiliate Professor of Law, Dean, Graduate School of Arts & Science, New York University.
