Call for Papers

Date: February 28 – March 1, 2009

Location: Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada

This conference intends to follow current debates in the intersection between constitutional law, constitutionalism, and feminist theory, both domestically and internationally. The discussions will address both rights and institutional issues and will welcome also the use of comparative methods and analysis.

Topics to be discussed include, but are not limited to: constitutional interpretation, popular constitutionalism, human rights, access to justice, multiculturalism, reproductive rights, and social and economic rights.

Key Note Speakers:

Professor Catherine MacKinnon, University of Michigan

Professor Reva Siegel, Yale University

Professor Jennifer Nedelsky, University of Toronto

The conference committee is seeking submissions of academic abstracts not exceeding 500 words. Our intention is to consolidate the papers presented and publish them in the format of an academic book (but the final decision on this will be made after the papers are submitted).

Submission Deadline:

September 30, 2008

Notification of Acceptance:

October 15, 2008
