Association Canadienne Droit et Société, Conférence annuelle 2014

6 au 8 juin 2014

Faculté de droit, Université du Manitoba

 

Rencontrer le droit : Systèmes et normes coexistants et contradictoires  

 

Le droit est dynamique. Les transformations du droit prennent place à l’intérieur d’une société mais peuvent aussi opérer à travers les sociétés. Les changements sont influencés par la course prise par la société et, au même temps, la société est transformée par les préceptes du droit. Au cours des interactions qui prennent place dans la société, le droit s’exprime en plusieurs formes. Ses formes peuvent êtres complémentaires ou contradictoires. L’intérêt de la Conférence annuelle 2014 est les divers rencontres du droit en navigant les interactions de la société. Cela comporte une exploration des normes légaux et socio-légaux coexistants en plus des contradictions inhérentes au cours de ces interactions. Nous cherchons des présentations, sessions, et d’autres groupes qui explorent les rencontres du droit aux périphéries mais aussi au centre.

 

Notre thème explore plusieurs domaines de la pensée socio-légale incluant :

-          Allégeances disciplinaires du savoir socio-légal

-          Les lois et traditions indigènes et systèmes légaux alternatifs

-          Les interactions entre les normes sociaux, le droit, et d’autres formes d’expression légale

-          Les droits/normes internationaux et le droit domestique

-          Les fondements historiques des complexités des interactions légaux 

-          Les rencontres légaux émergentes

-          Les rencontres du droit avec le sexe, les handicaps, la race, la santé, l’âge, la criminalisation

-          Les crises – guerre, terrorisme, financières, etc. – et le développement spontané du droit étant donné les normes préexistantes

-          Les interactions entre le droit et la différence      

 

Nous invitons des propositions concernant ces domaines ou d’autres qui explorent les coexistences et contradictions existants alors des rencontres entre le droit et les peuples, les communautés, et la société en générale. Les propositions peuvent inclure, mais ne sont pas limités à :     

-          Présentations

-          Sessions

-          Ateliers pour les étudiants de deuxième ou troisième cycle

-          Tables rondes

-          Ateliers de recherche

-          Sessions d’auteurs rencontrant lecteurs

Nous invitions aussi des expressions d’intérêts pour présider une session.

Veuillez envoyer vos propositions de 250 à 300 mots, incluant 2 à 4 mots clés, affiliation institutionnelle, et coordonnées à Maura Matesic, mmatesic@yorku.ca, d’ici le 15 janvier 2014. Une reconnaissance de reçu de votre proposition sera envoyée.   

CLSA 2014 Annual Meeting: Call for Papers

Sun, 2013-09-29 20:07 -- manager

Canadian Law and Society Association, Annual Meeting 2014

June 6-8, 2014

Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba

 

Law’s Encounters: Co-existing and Contradictory Norms and Systems

 

Law is dynamic. Over the course of time, law changes within and across societies. These changes are influenced by the course that society takes and in turn, society changes based on the dictates of law. In the process of societal interactions, law becomes expressed in multiple forms. Some of these forms are complementary, others are contradictory. The focus of the Canadian Law and Society’s Annual Meeting in 2014 is law’s multiple encounters in navigating interactions in society. It involves an exploration of co-existing legal and socio-legal norms as well as the contradictions inherent in some of these encounters. We are interested in papers, panels and other groups that explore law’s encounters at the margins as well as the center.

 

Our broad theme explores several areas of socio-legal thought and scholarship including:

-          Disciplinary allegiances in socio-legal scholarship

-          Indigenous laws and traditions and other legal systems

-          Interactions between social norms, statute and other forms of legal expression

-          International law/norms and domestic law

-          Historical foundations of law’s multi-faceted encounters

-          New and emerging socio-legal encounters

-          Law’s encounters with gender, disability, race, health, age, criminalization etc.

-          Crises – war, terrorism, financial crises and others – and spontaneous development of laws in light of pre-existing norms

-          Law’s encounters with difference

 

We invite proposals in these areas and others that explore the broad theme of the co-existences and contradictions inherent in law’s encounters with peoples, communities and broader society. Proposals may include but are not limited to:

-          Papers

-          Panels

-          Graduate student workshops

-          Roundtables

-          Research workshops

-          Author meets readers sessions

We also invite expressions of interest for chairing panels.

Please e-mail proposals of between 250 words to 300 words, including 2-4 keywords, institutional affiliation and contact details to Maura Matesic at mmatesic@yorku.ca by January 15, 2014. We will acknowledge receipt of your proposal.

We invite presentations relating to any ongoing socio-legal research, although we are particularly interested in presentations dealing with issues of social justice in the context of the current sociopolitical-economic climate.
