Dorothy Brown, a leading (and always exciting, interesting, and provocative!) voice in critical tax theory, is organizing a critical tax workshop to take place this fall at Emory University. Here is the call for papers that she has begun circulating:
Critical Perspectives on Tax Policy Workshop
Call for Papers
This is a call for individual paper presentations or incubator ideas that look at tax policy from a critical perspective. A critical perspective on tax policy interrogates the ways that tax policy impacts historically disadvantaged groups. Critical perspectives on tax policy for this workshop will be limited to a focus on at least one of the following topics: race or ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender or gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, or disability. Those examining tax policy in a critical way from a legal, social science, humanities, or comparative/international perspective are encouraged to participate. The goals of this workshop are to connect those of us working throughout the academy in this area with each other, welcome new members into the critical perspectives community, provide collaborative support for our research, and transmit that to a wider audience. The conference will take place at Emory Law School in Atlanta, GA on September 16-17, 2011.
There will be no registration fee. The cost of all meals will be provided by Emory Law School; however, each participant will be responsible for their own transportation costs and hotel expenses. The conference hotel will be the Emory Conference Center, and the group rate is $99 per night. The block of rooms will be available at the group rate until August 15, 2011. To reserve a room please contact my administrative assistant Mr. Daniel Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-727-9434.
Abstracts no greater in length than 500 words including name, affiliation, and contact information should be submitted no later than June 30, 2011 via e-mail to Dorothy Brown at Dorothy.Brown@emory.edu. Participants will be notified whether their proposal was accepted no later than August 1, 2011.
