Grant from the American Psychology-Law Society The American Psychology-Law Society has recently created an exciting new grant opportunity!

The Request for Proposals is attached to this email and can be found at http://goo.gl/7vrQ5f​; proposals are due November 1, 2016.

Please email Lora Levett or Nick Schweitzer (Chairs of the Research and Interdisciplinary Grants Committees) with questions - llevett@ufl.edu, njs@asu.edu


Lever Press, a peer-reviewed, open access press sponsored by leading liberal arts colleges,
issues call for works and series
The Lever Press, a peer-reviewed, open access publisher of scholarly monographs in the humanities, the arts, and the humanistic social sciences, has officially launched.

Conceived by an initiative of the Oberlin Group, a consortium of eighty liberal arts colleges across the nation, the Lever Press is made possible by funding commitments from more than forty college and university libraries within and beyond Oberlin’s membership, and run by a partnership of two established scholarly publishers—the Amherst College Press and Michigan Publishing at the University of Michigan. Lever Press is guided by a cross-institutional, multidisciplinary editorial board of distinguished scholars: 

Darin Hayton, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of History, Haverford College
Nicolle Hirschfeld, Associate Professor of Classical Studies, Trinity University
Matthew Johnson, Assistant Professor and Chair of East Asian Studies, Grinnell College
Rebecca Futo Kennedy, Associate Professor of Classical Studies and Interim Director of the Denison Museum, Denison University
Frederick Knight, Professor and Chairman of History, Morehouse College
Karil Kucera, Associate Professor of Art History and Asian Studies and Chair, Asian Studies St. Olaf College
Jason Mittell, Professor of Film and Media Culture and American Studies and Faculty Director, Digital Liberal Arts Initiative, Middlebury College
Mary Crone Odekon, Professor and Chair, Department of Physics, Skidmore College
J. Aaron Simmons, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Furman University
Lisa Trivedi, Professor of History, Hamilton College
Josephine Wright, Professor of Music, The Josephine Lincoln Morris Professor of Black Studies, and Chair, Department of Africana Studies, The College of Wooster

In giving shape to its emerging editorial program, Lever Press has developed a “Guidance to Authors” signaling an interest in works characterized by three qualities:

  • Exhibit the deep commitment to interdisciplinarity that is native to smaller academic communities where faculty members daily collaborate across field boundaries. We are particularly interested in projects that connect perspectives from the sciences, arts, and humanities.
  • Engage with major social issues facing our communities. Founded on strong ethical and religious principles, liberal arts colleges are the location of important debates about the grand challenges that face our society which we hope to manifest in our publications.
  • Blur the traditional lines between “research” and “teaching,” creating resources ideally suited for experiential learning environments. Liberal arts colleges have reinvented the pedagogy of engagement and our publications will reflect that commitment. Among other things, we are interested in projects curated by faculty members that involve undergraduates in the process of creation and highlight their contributions.

Proposals for new works and new series are now being welcomed at the Lever Press website. Information and instructions for submissions may be found at http://www.leverpress.org/authors/

Call for Papers - Applied Feminism and Intersectionality: Examining Law through the Lens of Multiple Identities The Center on Applied Feminism at the University of Baltimore School of Law seeks paper proposals for the Tenth Anniversary of the Feminist Legal Theory Conference.  We hope you will join us for this exciting celebration on March 30-31, 2017.

This year, the conference will explore how intersecting identities inform -- or should inform -- feminist legal theory and justice-oriented legal practice, legal systems, legal policy, and legal activism. Beginning in 1989, Kimberlé Crenshaw identified the need for law to recognize persons as representing multiple intersecting identities, not only one identity (such as female) to the exclusion of another (such as African American). Intersectionality theory unmasks how social systems oppress people in different ways.  While its origins are in exploring the intersection of race and gender, intersectionality theory now encompasses all intersecting identities including religion, ethnicity, citizenship, class, disability, and sexual orientation. Today, intersectionality theory is an important part of the Black Lives Matter and #SayHerName movements. For more information, see https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/in-theory/wp/2015/09/24/why-intersectionality-cant-wait/

We seek submissions of papers that focus on the topic of applied feminism and intersecting identities.  This conference aims to explore the following questions: What impact has intersectionality theory had on feminist legal theory?  How has it changed law and social policy? How does intersectionality help us understand and challenge different forms of oppression?  What is its transformative potential? What legal challenges are best suited to an intersectionality approach? How has intersectionality  theory changed over time and where might it go in the future?

We welcome proposals that consider these questions from a variety of substantive disciplines and perspectives. As always, the Center’s conference will serve as a forum for scholars, practitioners and activists to share ideas about applied feminism, focusing on connections between theory and practice to effectuate social change. The conference will be open to the public and will feature a keynote speaker. Past keynote speakers have included Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, Dr. Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, Senators Barbara Mikulski and Amy Klobuchar, NOW President Terry O’Neill, EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum, and U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner.

To submit a paper proposal, please submit an abstract by Friday October 28, 2016 to ubfeministconference@gmail.com. Your abstract must contain your full contact information and professional affiliation, as well as an email, phone number, and mailing address. In the “Re” line, please state: CAF Conference 2017. Abstracts should be no longer than one page. We will notify presenters of selected papers in November. About half the presenter slots will be reserved for authors who commit to publishing in the annual symposium volume of the University of Baltimore Law Review. Thus, please indicate at the bottom of your abstract whether you are submitting (1) solely to present or (2) to present and publish in the symposium volume. Authors who are interested in publishing in the Law Review will be strongly considered for publication. For all presenters, working drafts of papers will be due no later than March 3, 2017. Presenters are responsible for their own travel costs; the conference will provide a discounted hotel rate as well as meals.

We look forward to your submissions. If you have further questions, please contact Prof. Margaret Johnson at majohnson@ubalt.edu. For additional information about the conference, please visit law.ubalt.edu/caf.

Essential Duties & Responsibilities:

In today’s world values and norms are circulating ever more intensely between various societies and cultures.

For this round of positions, preference will be given to research proposals that focus on the European context. Topics of particular interest include: (1) the increasing interconnectedness of law and religion; (2) divergent notions of justice in the face of cultural diversity; (3) the ethnographic study of the workings of institutions of social regulation (in, inter alia, the fields of migration; kinship, family and household; neighborhoods; identity issues; property claims and their protection, etc.).

Amongst the flagship initiatives the Department is currently developing is a new project that seeks to collect judicial cases on religious and cultural diversity from different European countries. Postdoctoral researchers will be able to significantly contribute to the set-up and data collection from within their own fields to help build up this major research instrument.

Successful applicants will also be expected to collaborate with the other colleagues in the Department, contribute to teamwork and a collegial atmosphere, and generally strive to ensure cross-fertilization within the Department.
