CALL FOR PARTICIPATION & ABSTRACTS Emerging Scholars Workshop 2011-2012
GRADUATE SCHOOL IN LAW AND REGULATORY GOVERNANCE OSGOODE HALL LAW SCHOOL, YORK UNIVERSITY
See the full CFP (.pdf) here for guideline and details! Deadline DECEMBER 20 2011
Critical & Constructive Engagement
The aim of the workshop is to promote critical and constructive engagement with the work-inprogress of workshop participants. Rather than presenting your own material, your project is presented by a fellow researcher, offering a fresh look at your work, accompanied by comments and questions. Before the author is given a chance to ‘respond’, other workshop participants offer their feedback. Building on this engagement with each other’s scholarship, participants are furthermore encouraged to experiment and explore new opportunities of collegial collaboration, such as co-authorship, interdisciplinary work or conference organization.
Certain sessions of the Workshop will be dedicated to interactive professional development, where participants learn about the alchemy of preparing recruitment talks, conference presentations, grant proposals, course design, publishing and conference conceptualization.
The Critical Research Laboratory in Law & Society (CRL), together with the Institute for Feminist Legal Studies (IFLS) at Osgoode Hall Law School announces the Emerging Scholars Workshop (ESW). The ESW will add a cutting-edge level of intellectual life and discourse to
the new graduate work spaces at the Law School. Each workshop presents new scholarship by Osgoode students, faculty and visiting scholars at CRL and IFLS. The Workshop will contribute to the forming Graduate School in Law & Regulatory Governance and compliments the existing Graduate Seminar in Legal Research. The Workshop will bring together scholars with a focus on innovative and interdisciplinary research, including comparative and experiential work.
The ESW fosters a thriving collaborative community of scholars in the early stages of their career as well as established researchers and faculty. At the bi-monthly ESW, we will create a collegial and supportive research environment where we can develop skills, present work at
different stages, invite and provide constructive feedback and commentary. All interested researchers are invited to participate and to submit a proposal of their work that they would like to present at one of the forthcoming workshops.
