Calls for Proposals are being accepted for the Twentieth Anniversary Conference of LatCrit which takes place Oct. 1-3, 2015 at the DoubleTree at Hilton Hotel Anaheim – Orange County. The theme is Critical Constitutionalism. The 2015 LatCrit-SALT Faculty Development Workshop is Oct. 1, 2015. The submission deadline is May 1, 2015. For more details, see LatCrit 2015: Twentieth Anniversary Conference.
LatCrit 2015 will launch a multi-year intervention into constitutional law’s potential utility to outgroups as a means to go beyond resisting subordination and to strategically organize critical sociolegal scholars’ work in conjunction with contemporary social justice movements. The conference will interrogate generational transitions within our activist-scholar community and center the question of engendering emerging voices and ethical leadership. LatCrit 2015’s substantive programming will focus on, but not be limited to, the U.S. Constitution’s provisions affecting political advocacy and participation, criminal proceedings, individual rights, and due process guarantees. Paper proposals on other topics related to subordination and resistance are also welcome. Special emphasis will be given to supporting the voices of emerging scholar-activists whose insight and commitment can animate LatCrit into the coming decades.
