2nd REMINDER: Call For Papers - Courts and Politics Research Group 2017 Spring Workshop

Due Date: March 31st


The Courts and Politics Research Group invites the submission of abstracts for its second annual Spring Workshop, to be held at the University of Guelph on May 5, 2017.


The goal of the workshop is to bring together faculty and graduate students who study in the field of courts and politics to present scholarship or works-in-progress, (including MRP/thesis chapters) to a group of individuals with shared interests and expertise, in a relaxed and friendly setting. There is no specific theme for the workshop; instead we invite scholars to present work that falls into the broad field of courts and politics, constitutionalism, and law and politics. We encourage the submission of scholarship that is in early stages or is unpublished.


This year the conference will feature a lunchtime keynote 'fireside chat' with Justice Grant Huscroft from Ontario Court of Appeal, moderated by Dr. Dennis Baker (University of Guelph). 


Scholars that wish to attend, but do not want to present a paper are asked to RSVP to Kate Puddister or Emmett Macfarlane, so we have an idea of the number of participants.


Those interested in presenting work are asked to send paper titles and short abstracts (no more than 200 words) or a brief outline of their proposed presentation to Kate Puddister (kpuddist@uoguelph.ca) and Emmett Macfarlane (courtsandpolitics@gmail.comworkshop organizers.  


The Courts and Politics Research Group is composed of scholars who study courts, constitutions and the law from a political science perspective. It is designed to connect political scientists in the region of Southern Ontario: http://www.courtsandpolitics.org/


We hope you can join us in Guelph for what promises to be an interesting and productive workshop.
