Critical perspectives on global law and the environment
The School of Law and Human Rights Centre, University of Essex (UK), invite contributions to the Workshop ‘Critical perspectives on global law and the environment’ to be held as an online event on 22-23 April 2021. The aim of the Workshop is to bring together 8-10 early career scholars from around the world, employing interdisciplinary and critical approaches to the study of environmental issues, e.g. North-South dimension of environmental problems, including from a TWAIL and critical race perspective; critical readings of the law in the Anthropocene; posthuman and new materialist analyses; and queer/gender theory etc. The format of the Workshop is for each participant to produce a paper of around 8,000 words, with a short presentation and the opportunity to give feedback to one another based on the submitted paper. Each paper will also have a senior colleague as discussant, including colleagues from the University of Essex and beyond. Professor Carmen G. Gonzalez, Morris I. Leibman, Professor of Law at Loyola University of Chicago, will deliver a keynote address on the topic of racial capitalism and global environmental law. The best papers presented at the workshop will be considered for a Symposium in the Asian Journal of International Law, subject to the journal’s review process and criteria of having a significant transnational or international component, in line with the journal’s focus. Abstracts no longer than 500 words must be sent for consideration by 1 December 2020 to email@example.com.
