Deadline 10 December: LAW ON THE EDGE – Call for Proposals

Law on the Edge is jointly presented by the Canadian Law and Society Association and the Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand and will be hosted on-campus at the beautiful University of British Columbia in Vancouver from 1 – 4 July 2013. Proposals for conference sessions (detailed below) must be e-mailed by 10 December 2012.

The concept of living on the edge is not simply geo-political. While it is a politics of the edge, perpetually responding to and writing back at the centre, it is also a recognition that law itself constitutes boundaries and edges, creating sameness, difference, Others and allies. The conference planning emphasizes the following themes:

– Law in times of crisis, tragedy & uncertainty;
– Indigeneity, pluralism & difference;
– Law on the geopolitical edge;
– Connections, departures, mobilities; and
– New legal spaces on the edge.
