The Call for Proposals for our 13th Annual South Asia Legal Studies Workshop is now up. The annual event will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at the University of Wisconsin Law School in Madison, Wisc., USA. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 12, 2019. The workshop takes place on the first day of the 48th Annual Conference on South Asia, although our event is not officially part of the larger conference.
Last year, we tried a new format. Rather than inviting panel proposals and having a day of presentations, we accepted only single paper proposals. The result was an intensive day of discussion featuring this impressive line-up of pre-circulated short papers. For each paper, there was a 5-minute set-up by the author, a 5-minute comment from a discussant, and then Q&A with everyone else.
We really liked how things went last year, and so we’re continuing with this format in 2019. Please note that there are two submission streams: a short paper stream and an incubator project stream. The papers that are accepted and ultimately shared with the group should be short–10-12 pages–so most authors will circulate an excerpt from a longer piece of work.
