The 2014 meeting of the American Society for Legal History (ASLH) will take place in Denver, Colorado, November 6-8, 2014. The ASLH invites proposals on any facet or period of legal history, anywhere in the world. We also encourage thematic proposals that range across traditional chronological or geographical fields. In selecting presenters, the Program Committee will give preference to those who did not present at last year's meeting.
Travel grants will be available for presenters in need. These resources will nevertheless be limited, and special priority will be given to presenters traveling from abroad, graduate students, post-docs, and independent scholars.
The Program Committee welcomes proposals for both full panels and individual papers, though please note that individual papers are less likely to be accepted. The Program Committee encourages the submission of a variety of different types of panel proposals, including: traditional 3-paper panels (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 Committee will try to complete; author-meets-reader panels; and roundtable discussions.
All panel proposals should include the following:
· A single page listing the panel title, the titles of each paper, complete contact information for each presenter (including chair-commentator), and any special scheduling requests. (Note that we may not be able to accommodate all scheduling requests.)
· a 300-word description of the panel
· a c.v. for each presenter
· for paper-based panels only: a 300-word abstract of each paper
Individual paper proposals should include:
· a c.v. for each presenter (including complete contact information)
· a 300-word abstract of the paper
Please note that AV equipment/powerpoint capabilities will be unavailable at the Denver 2014 conference.
The deadline for submitting proposals is March 1, 2014. Proposals should be sent as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Substantive questions should be directed to Joanna Grisinger (email@example.com) or Mitra Sharafi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Those unable to send proposals as email attachments may mail hard copies to:
