2011 Workshop on Women Rethinking Equality

Date(s) of Conference:

June 2011


Washington, D.C.


The Workshop will be held in June, 2011 in Washington, DC. It will appeal to a full range of teachers and scholars in all subject areas by creating opportunities for a rich dialogue about the meaning, contours, implications, and status of equality for women, with particular attention to women and gender in the setting of legal education. Conference sessions will focus on substantive law and scholarship, teaching concerns, and professional development issues. We welcome participation by all AALS members-and particularly all women-regardless of whether their scholarship focuses on gender.

Call for Papers:

Women write in all fields of law, yet women at all stages of their careers who write in male-dominated fields may have fewer opportunities to present and receive feedback on their work. The same is true of junior women scholars across all academic specialties. Additionally, female and male scholars in gender and feminist jurisprudence often find their work marginalized within traditional academic disciplines and institutions. This call for papers invites scholars from these categories to present their works-in-progress and to receive comments in small group sessions with assigned commentators. Because the goal is to give these scholars more exposure, no subject matter preferences govern this call. Full drafts or nearly completed drafts are encouraged, although these drafts may be rough.

Interested faculty should submit a précis of the paper she or he would like to present, along with her or his résumé. The précis should be no more than 2500 words. Please e-mail these materials to 11wwcfp@aals.org by July 31, 2010. We will notify selected authors by October 1, 2010.
