Author-Meets-Reader (AMR) Book Sessions
We will be accepting only those session proposals for books that were published in 2012. In addition, proposals must clearly articulate the book's relevance to law and society as a field, and should demonstrate the likelihood to produce an interesting discussion for a community of law and society scholars. We especially encourage book session proposals that incorporate 2 or more related new titles.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept all Author- Meets-Reader sessions that are proposed, and there will only be a limited number of such sessions in the program. Proposed sessions must provide the book's publication date and must include a complete and detailed abstract that describes the book's contribution to law and society scholarship. Please note that because of the more restrictive selection criteria for author meets reader sessions, participation in these panels will NOT count against the 1 participation rule for the conference.
Proposals for Author-Meets-Reader Sessions must include:
- a session title comprised of the title(s) of the book(s) and author(s)' name(s)
- a 100-250 word description of the session
- keyword selection(s)
- a Chair
- the book Author(s)
- at least four Readers
- include CRN or IRC sponsorship (in session title) when relevant
Follow the instructions for submitting an AMR Session Proposal.
They are the same as the Roundtable Session Proposal Instructions.
