The 2017 annual meeting will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 26, 2017 to October 29, 2017. The Local Arrangements Committee has produced a flyer. Pre-registration and hotel booking will open in the Spring of 2017.
The 2017 annual meeting of the American Society for Legal History will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from October 26 – October 29, 2017. The Program Committee invites proposals on any facet or period of legal history, anywhere in the world. We also strongly encourage thematic proposals that traverse traditional chronological or geographical fields.
Limited financial assistance (covering airfare and ground transportation only) is available for presenters in need, with priority given to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and scholars from abroad.
The Program Committee welcomes proposals for full sessions and individual papers. Given the number and high quality of submissions, however, individual papers are much less likely than full sessions to be accepted. Individual paper submitters are encouraged to connect with other scholars (through H-Law, etc.) to coordinate the submission of complete session proposals.
The Committee encourages the submission of a variety of different types of program proposals, including:
Traditional paper panels (3-4 papers, with a separate chair-commentator);
Incomplete panels lacking either one paper or a chair-commentator (whether 2-paper panels with a chair-commentator, or 3-paper panels without a chair-commentator), which the Program Committee will try to complete;
Skills / Pedagogical workshops (chair, 3-4 presenters);
Author-meets-reader panels (up to two (2) book authors, with 2-3 commentators);
Roundtable discussions (1-2 chairs, with 3-4 commentators);
“Lightning Round” sessions (1-2 chairs, with 8-12 presenters, speaking for three-minutes each, on projects at any stage of development, in a related geographical/temporal/thematic/methodological field);
Pre-conference symposium programs (more information below).
