LAW AND LOVE:
IN AND BEYOND PANDEMIC TIMES
A VIRTUAL AND IN-PERSON CONFERENCE OF THE
LAW, LITERATURE AND HUMANITIES ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALASIA
MONDAY 29 NOVEMBER – THURSDAY 2 DECEMBER 2021
UNIVERSITY OF THE SUNSHINE COAST, SIPPY DOWNS
CALL FOR PAPERS DUE DATE EXTENDED TO 6 SEPTEMBER 2021
We hope this email finds you well in these difficult times.
We are absolutely delighted with the response to the call for papers to date – but we don’t want anybody to miss out on being able to submit a proposal for the conference. As such, we are extending the call for papers for the conference until the 6th September 2021. We would also like to confirm that, subject to Covid-restrictions at the time, the conference will have both online and in-person attendance options for all the sessions – and there will be flexibility in changing attendance options if required.
For HDR/postgraduate students, the Association has a number of bursaries on offer – the closing date for these is still 31st of August 2021. Applications need to be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information is available on the Association website here: https://www.lawlithum.org/postgraduate-bursaries/
We have a fantastic line-up of keynotes and plenaries in the works including:
- Keynote speaker: Associate Professor Ioannis Ziogas (Durham), author of Law and love in Ovid: Courting in the Age of Augustus
- Plenary Panel: “Loving and Not Loving Law” by Dr Maria Giannacopoulos (Flinders) and Dr Claire Loughnan (Melbourne)
- With more to come!
Registration for the conference will open shortly, but if you have not yet put in a paper or panel proposal – please do! Attached is the extended call for papers, and more information can be found at our conference website: www.usc.edu.au/lawandlove/
We look forward to seeing you (virtually or in-person) later this year.
