Call for Proposals for Papers
We seek papers from both legal and social science perspectives; both theoretical and empirical works are of interest. Read about the specific topical areas for which we are particularly interested in receiving proposals. The proposals should be for completed work — or studies already in progress — that will be ready for conference presentation in June 2014.
We will also consider proposals relating to education (e.g., social movements as they pertain to creating demand for new educational policies; relationship of other types of social policy, such as housing or voting rights law/policy to education policy). We would especially welcome papers that examine successful models and whether they are applicable to today’s context (such as Head Start, Freedom Schools, dual language schools, etc.).
Graduate Student Symposium Submissions
A graduate student symposium will precede the conference and seeks to build a new generation of researchers in this area and provide them with feedback on their work, as well as introduce them to more senior scholars in this field. The deadline for graduate student submissions will be in late fall or early winter.
