9th Annual Conference of the Association for the Study of Law, Culture
and the Humanities, Syracuse University, N.Y. March 17-18, 2006

The Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities is an
organization of scholars engaged in interdisciplinary, humanistically
oriented legal scholarship. The Association brings together a wide
range of people engaged in scholarship on legal history, legal theory
and jurisprudence, law and cultural studies, law and literature, law
and the performing arts, and legal hermeneutics. We want to encourage
dialogue across and among these fields about issues of interpretation,
identity, and values, about authority, obligation, and justice, and
about law's place in culture.

We will be accepting papers, panel proposals and volunteers for chairs
and discussants from July 1st 2005 until October 15th 2005.

All submissions must be made online at: .

Examples of the panels offered at previous meetings include:

History, Memory and Law; Reading Race; Law and Literature; Human Rights
and Cultural Pluralism; Speech, Silence, and the Language of Law;
Judgment, Justice, and Law; Beyond Identity; The Idea of Practice in
Legal Thought; Metaphor and Meaning; Representing Legality in Film and
Mass Media; Anarchy, Liberty and Law; What is Excellence in
Interpretation?; Ethics, Religion, and Law; Moral Obligation and Legal
Life; The Post-Colonial in Literary and Legal Study; Processes and
Possibilities in Interdisciplinary Law Teaching

We invite scholars with interests across the range of areas in Law,
Culture and the Humanities to organize panels, performance pieces,
screenings, or to submit proposals for individual paper presentations.

We urge those interested in attending to consider submitting complete
panels, and we hope to encourage a variety of formatsfor example,
roundtables or sessions in which commentators respond to a single paper
or issue. We invite proposals for sessions in which the focus is on
pedagogy or methodology, for author-meets-readers sessions organized
around important books in the field, or for sessions in which
participants focus on performance (theatrical, filmic, musical, poetic).

We also welcome volunteers for chairs and discussants from people who
are not submitting proposals, as well as from those who wish to present
a paper.

Participants will be notified of their acceptance by December 31st
2005. We cannot promise that we will be able to accommodate all
