4th Annual Critical Perspectives: Criminology and Social Justice

Tue, 2014-01-14 17:47 -- manager

Critical Perspectives: Criminology and Social Justice

Call for Papers

We invite proposals for papers and panels for the Fourth Annual National Conference on Critical Perspectives: Criminology and Social Justice, to be held at Carleton University from Tuesday June 10 through Thursday June 12, as a joint initiative of Carleton and the University of Ottawa. The conference is an annual forum for Canadian and international critical scholars and people in the broader community, examining criminological and social justice issues. The third annual conference last spring at the University of Ottawa was the biggest and best yet, and featured over 80 papers and presenters from across Canada and beyond. Scholars, graduate students, practitioners, and activists are invited to apply. Joint panels involving both academics and people from the broader community working on related issues are particularly encouraged. Note that this year, our conference will be held immediately before the International Conference on Penal Abolition (ICOPA), which will be at the University of Ottawa from Friday June 13 through Sunday June 15. For details, see www.actionicopa.org<http://www.actionicopa.org> .

 

The Critical Perspectives meetings are being convened by the Department of Law and Legal Studies, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Carleton University, and the Department of Criminology in association with the Laboratory for Justice Studies and Research at the University of Ottawa. 

•                Reflecting the cultural and political diversity of Canadian intellectual landscape, papers may be presented in either French or English. We encourage bilingual panels, and invite participants to innovate in adopting bridge-building communication strategies in order to limit the linguistic divide. 

•                For individual papers, please include your name, institutional affiliation, contact information, the title of your paper and an abstract of up to 250 words. For panels, please include the names, institutional affiliations, contact information, paper titles and abstracts of up to 250 words for each paper, and, if possible, a designated chair. If you are willing to participate as a panel chair for another session, please also let us know. 

•                Our firm deadline is March 2, 2014. Early expressions of interest are encouraged. English participants are asked to forward proposals by email to conference administrative co-ordinator Deborah Conners at deconners@rogers.com and questions to Deborah and/or Aaron Doyle at aaron_doyle@carleton.ca French participants are asked to forward questions or proposals by e-mail to Bastien Quirion at Bastien.Quirion@uottawa.ca 

•                The conference aims to be inclusive and there is no registration fee. There will be an informal opening reception the evening of Tuesday June 10. We look forward to seeing you in Ottawa for this national meeting of critical scholars and practitioners. Information on conference registration, accommodation and other activities will follow.
