Call for Papers: ClassCrits at Ten: Mobilizing for Resistance, Solidarity, and Justice

ClassCrits at Ten: Mobilizing for Resistance, Solidarity, and Justice will be held November 10-11, 2017, at Tulane University School of Law, New Orleans, Louisiana.  

We invite panel proposals, roundtable discussion proposals, paper presentations, poetry and fiction reading, and art that speak to this year’s theme, as well as to general ClassCrits themes.  We are also interested in receiving proposals from law clinicians who engage in activist lawyering as a core part of their curriculum design. Finally, we extend a special invitation to junior scholars (i.e., graduate students and non-tenured faculty members) to submit proposals for works in progress. At least one senior scholar, as well as other ClassCrits scholars, will provide feedback and detailed commentary upon each work in progress in a small, supportive working session at this year’s workshop.

Proposals (brief abstracts) are due by email to classcrits@gmail.com by June 1, 2017.
