Sociological Inquiries into International Law—London, UK

Papers are invited for a workshop on Sociological Inquiries into International Law which will be held at the London School of Economics May 16, 2014. Abstracts are due (to Sungjoon Cho, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, by Nov. 1, 2014.

The aim of this workshop is to help bring contemporary international law scholarship into a closer conversation with a number of inspiring and theoretically rich literatures on law and markets deriving from traditions of thinking within sociology and anthropology. We are convinced that, particularly within the field of international economic law, a deeper and more informed engagement with a range of sociological and social theoretic modes of thinking is necessary for intellectual renewal. We seek innovative and original contributions from scholars whose work is situated at those disciplinary boundaries, broadly understood.

The organizers are particularly interested in

  • International law and the sociology of knowledge
  • International law and economic sociology
  • Sociologically inspired scholarship in international relations
  • Anthropologically inspired work.

The full call for papers is on the International Economic Law and Policy blog. mw
