Academics who are working in the Law & Religion area may be interested in this upcoming conference at the University of Notre Dame in Chicago, especially those who are in the first decade of their academic career. I am informed that offers of papers will be considered even from those based outside the US. Here are the details:
The University of Notre Dame Law School’s Religious Liberty Initiative invites junior faculty to submit abstracts of works in progress to be considered for presentation at a Law & Religion Junior Faculty Conferenceto be held at Notre Dame Law School’s Chicago Campus October 27-28, 2023.
We are looking for submissions of proposed articles that will make significant contributions in the field of law and religion. If your paper is selected, you will receive a $1,500 honorarium + travel costs, and dedicated commentary on your paper from a distinguished scholar in this field. You also commit that you will have a working draft circulated at least one month before the Conference. For more information and to submit a 500-word abstract of your proposed article by April 28th, 2023, visit our website. If you already have a working draft of your article, you may also submit that with your abstract for consideration during the selection process.
Qualifications: Submissions are limited to unpublished papers by junior faculty, meaning tenure-track law faculty who have been teaching for no more than 10 years. Aspiring scholars who have not yet obtained their first tenure-track appointments, including teaching or other fellows and visiting assistant professors, are also welcome to submit papers for consideration.
- Submissions may not have been accepted for publication by a journal, and the article must remain substantively revisable (for purposes of incorporating changes resulting from conference feedback).
- There is a limit of one submission per person.
- Co-authored pieces will be accepted only if both authors are junior faculty members. Any honorarium awarded on the basis of a co-authored piece must be shared.
Selection: Submissions will be competitively selected by a jury of distinguished scholars in the field of law and religion.
