Second Postgraduate Conference in Comparative Legal History 27–29 June 2019, Augsburg University, Germany
Call for Papers
The European Society for Comparative Legal History (ESCLH) is pleased to announce its Second Postgraduate Conference. The ESCLH invites PhD-students (beyond their first year) and post-doctoral-researchers who work in the field of comparative legal history to participate in the conference. The conference will be held from 27 to 29 June 2019 at Augsburg University, Germany.
The ESCHL wants to overcome the narrow nationalism and geographical segregation of legal history in contemporary European scholarship and professional organisations. The society, thus, aims to promote comparative legal history, the explicit comparison of legal ideas and institutions in two or more legal traditions.
The Second Postgraduate Conference of the ESCLH will give advanced PhD-students and post-doc- toral-researchers the opportunity to present their research in the field of comparative legal history to a panel of six leading experts. Furthermore, the conference will give all participants the opportunity to build academic networks. The experts on the panel cover a broad range of subjects: Ulrike Babusiaux (Zürich), Mia Korpiola (Turku), Annamaria Monti (Milano), Wim Decock (Leuven), Matthew Dyson (Oxford), and Aniceto Masferrer (Valencia).
The ESCLH invites advanced doctoral candidates and post-doctoral researchers to submit abstracts for presentation. The abstract should be of no more than 300 words and give the title of your research project, your field of research, and your personal data (full name, email address, affiliated university, CV) to:
The conference language is English and abstracts must be submitted in English. The closing date for receipt of abstracts is 15 January 2019. 12 applicants will be selected and invited to participate in the conference. Successful applicants will be informed by 15 February 2019.
Participants are expected to cover their own travel expenses. Accommodation and catering will be provided without charge.
