We received a revised call for papers for the next Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society annual meeting.
Abstracts are invited from scholars bringing historical perspectives on law who wish to gather at The University of Auckland and AUT University – there to listen to and discuss papers and panels on aspects of law in history.
Well that was the original plan, but since the impact of COVID-19, travel restrictions and university funding deficits, we now also seek expressions of interest from those who may wish to present a paper to a dual format conference or virtual-only conference if either possibility turns out to be feasible.
The 2020 theme invites a comparative lens on British imperial and colonial histories but other law in history topics will be favourably considered. Proposals from postgraduate and early career researchers are welcome. Individual paper proposals and panel proposals must include an abstract (no more than 300 words) and a biographical statement (no more than 100 words per speaker).
All abstracts must be submitted to Karen Fairweather: firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 July 2020
If the ANZLHS executive decides to proceed with the conference in one format or another, the Organising Committee will notify all those whose abstracts have been accepted for the programme by the end of August. If a real conference takes place, graduate students may apply for Kercher Scholarships to assist them in attending. Please apply to Katherine Sanders: email@example.com by 30 September. Graduate attendees may also wish to enter for the Forbes Society Prize.
The Society’s peer-reviewed journal law&history will consider submissions from those who present papers at the conference.
