Scholars seeking the perfect venue for presenting their work in progress need look no further than the 3d annual American Society of International Law Research Forum, to be held as part of ASIL’s 2013 Midyear Meeting, November 1-3 at New York University School of Law.
Delighted to see that my Georgia Law colleague, Professor Timothy L. Meyer, will serve as a Co-Chair of the Research Forum, as he did the October 2012 Midyear Meeting & Research Forum, which brought scores of scholars, from all over the world, here to Athens. Tim will be joined by Seton Hall Law Professor Kristen Boon. In the call for papers, they write:
‘The Research Forum, a Society initiative introduced in 2011, aims to provide a setting for the presentation and focused discussion of works-in-progress by Society members. All ASIL members are invited to attend the Forum, whether presenting a paper or not. … The Research Forum Committee will organize the selected paper proposals around common issues, themes, and approaches. Discussants, who will comment on the papers, will be assigned to each cluster of papers.’
Welcomed are unpublished papers “on any topic related to international and transnational law,” including “[i]nterdisciplinary projects, empirical studies, and jointly authored papers.”
Deadline for submission of 500-or-fewer-word abstracts is Friday, June 14, 2013; details on submission and other aspects of the Research Forum here.
