The Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities (ASLCH) will hold its second annual Graduate Student Workshop on 21st March, 2013. The half-day workshop immediately precedes the ASLCH Annual Meeting to be hosted by the School of Law, Birkbeck, University of London, on March 22-23, 2013. Applicants can be graduate students from any discipline with scholarly interests in Law, Culture, and the Humanities. Fifteen graduate students will be provided with accommodation for four nights during the workshop and conference.
The Graduate Student Workshop's aims are to promote the future development of the field of Law, Culture and the Humanities through the development of our junior colleagues by bringing together graduate students and established scholars in Law, Culture, and the Humanities. During seminars, panel discussions, informal conversation, and shared meals, we will discuss scholarly work, give feedback on student research projects, address issues pertinent to professional development, and facilitate scholarly networks between graduate and faculty colleagues by encouraging intellectual community.
The Workshop Committee for 2013: Catherine Kellogg, University of Alberta (co-chair), Stewart Motha, Birkbeck Law School (co-chair), Jennifer Culbert, Johns Hopkins University, and Jill Stauffer, Haverford College.
