Message 2: Law & Society Ass'n Annual Call for Papers: Language and Law

Date: Wed, 8 Oct 1997 22:43:13 -0400 (EDT)
From: Bethany K. Dumas <dumasbutk.edu>
Subject: Law & Society Ass'n Annual Call for Papers: Language and Law


The annual meeting of the Law & Society Ass'n will be at Snowmass
Village, Aspen, Colorado, USA, June 4-7, 1998. The theme is "Making
Connections Across Disciplines, Theories, and Methods." In recent
years (since 1990), this Association has featured 2-4 panels on
language and law, as well as related presentations of interest to
linguists.

Abstracts and other proposals for participation are due December 16,
1997. It has been a custom of several of us interested in language and
law to propose panels prior to the deadline. Typically, we take turns
receiving abstracts and proposing panels, including chairs. This year,
Ron Butters and I have offered to coordinate proposals. He and I will
meet on the weekend of Nov. 1-2 for that purpose. We hope to have all
session proposals complete by November 2.

If you are interested in proposing a paper or other kind of
presentation, and would like to have it included in the proposals we
will prepare, please send me an abstract using the guide below. I can
accept proposals through noon on October 29 via snail-mail (to my
U. of Tennessee address below). PLEASE NOTE THE NEW REQUIREMENT FOR A
CHECK OR CREDIT CARD SIGNATURE (BELOW). Because of the new
requirement, please note that you will have to mail your proposal;
please allow time for it to arrive. I am leaving for Durham on the
morning of October 30.

Some of us hope that a number of linguists will submit abstracts for
papers that may go into sessions other than language & law sessions
(although we also hope that there will be 2-3 such sessions). Ron and
I will be glad to coordinate the submission of those abstracts. Our
goal is to avoid the scheduling of sessions involving language and law
at the same time during the program. (We have been very successful in
achieving that goal in the past by coordinating our submissions.)

The abstract form requires all the information requested below (no
need for anonymity). FOR THE FIRST TIME, ALL PROPOSALS MUST ALSO BE
ACCOMPANIED BY AN "ADMINISTRATION PROCESSING FEE" OF $25 ($5 FOR
STUDENTS). THIS PER-PARTICIPANT (NOT PER-PARTICIPATION) FEE WILL BE
REFUNDED IF THE PROPOSED PRESENTATION IS NOT ACCEPTED BY THE PROGRAM
COMMITTEE; OTHERWISE, IT WILL BE CREDITED TOWARD THE REGISTRATION FEE
(NO REFUNDS FOR WITHDRAWALS OR NO-SHOWS.) YOU MUST INCLUDE A CHECK FOR
$25 WITH YOUR ABSTRACT OR ELSE SEND US A COPY OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL
PROPOSAL FORM (AVAILABLE FROM THE WEBSITE) INCLUDING YOUR CREDIT CARD
NO., EXPIRATION DATE, AND SIGNATURE. IF YOU DO NOT SEND US EITHER A
CHECK OR A SIGNED FORM, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO INCLUDE YOUR
PROPOSAL. THE ONLY PERSONS WHO DO NOT HAVE TO PAY THE FEE ARE
NON-PRESENTING CO-AUTHORS AND THOSE WHOSE ONLY MEETING PARTICIPATION
IS AS A PANEL CHAIR OR DISCUSSANT.

Additional information will be available (and updated frequently) at
the L&SA website:
