Call for Papers: Race + IP.

The conference Race + IP will be held April 20-22, 2017, at Boston College Law School.

Intellectual property (IP) is an increasingly important site of social, political, and economic struggle.  An emerging body of scholarship has begun to consider how IP reflects and reinforces inequalities along lines of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, and disability.  This body of scholarship examines how knowledge production regimes contribute to local and global economic disparities, dispossession of oppressed peoples, and hierarchies of power.  Race + IP offers an opportunity to explore in depth and in particular the relationship between race and intellectual properties.

Submit an abstract of no more than 500 words of the proposed paper with your name, position, and affiliation to  Organizers welcome abstracts from participants at all stages in their careers.  Abstracts must be received by September 30, 2016.

Presenters will be expected to circulate completed papers of approximately 8,500 words by March 15, 2017, so that they may be distributed to moderators and panelists. Papers must be original and unpublished (not accepted/under consideration for publication). The best papers will be published in an edited collection which outlines the theoretical investments, aims, methods, and directions of study of critical race IP.

Call for Papers: U.S. Feminist Judgments Project

The University of Akron School of Law and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas – William S. Boyd School of Law invite papers for the U.S. Feminist Judgments Project conference October 20-21, 2016 at the Center for Constitutional Law.

This conference will celebrate the 2016 publication of U.S. Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Opinions of the United States Supreme Court. That volume brought together more than fifty feminist legal scholars and lawyers to rewrite, using feminist reasoning, significant Supreme Court cases from the 1800s to the present day. (For more information, see the project website here.) Illustrating the value of this method of practical scholarship, the volume demonstrates that different processes and different outcomes would have been possible had decision makers applied feminist theory and methods in critical Supreme Court cases despite the restrictions of stare decisis.

Deadline: Interested persons should submit a brief written description of the proposed presentation (no more than 300 words) and a resume. Please use the subject line “U.S. Feminist Judgments Project October Conference Snapshot Proposals” and email these materials to Maria Campos ( by April 15, 2016.  Selected speakers will be notified by June 1, 2016.
