SOCIOLEGAL STUDIES EARLY CAREER WORKSHOP 2017
The workshop will be convened by Mark Fathi Massoud, University of California, Santa Cruz (USA); Kelley Moult, Centre for Law and Society, UCT and Dee Smythe, Faculty of Law, UCT. The workshop will be co-sponsored by the Centre for Law and Society (UCT) and Law and Society Review (the journal of the Law and Society Association).
This intensive writing workshop will provide a space for a small and promising group of draft papers to receive close attention and feedback from sociolegal scholars and mentors, to help ready those papers for journal submission. Each paper will have its own 1-hour session, where the author will receive feedback. Breakout groups will expose participants to diverse styles, literatures, theoretical innovations, methods, and international publishing practices in sociolegal studies.
Applicants must be advanced postgraduate students or recent PhDs who received a PhD after 17 August 2012 or who expect to receive a PhD before 17 August 2019. For the inaugural workshop, applicants may come from any African country but must be currently affiliated with a university in the Western Cape, South Africa.
PAPERS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 10 JUNE 2017
