Write On! Laureate Program in International Law

UoM-logo-thumbThis installment of Write On!, our periodic compilation of calls for papers, includes calls to present at Melbourne Law School, as follows:

The Laureate Program in International Law at Melbourne Law School will be holding a Conference on Humanitarianism and the Remaking of International Law: History, Ideology, Practice, Technology on May 31st, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.

Those proposing papers for presentation at the conference should submit a one page abstract and brief bio by email to Professor Anne Orford at laureate-intlaw@unimelb.edu.au by September 1st, 2017.

The language and logic of humanitarianism occupy an increasingly central place in international law. Humanitarian reason has shaped the ideology, practice, and technologies of international law over the past century. For some, this trend is clearly positive — international law is reimagined as humanity’s law. Yet critics have pointed to the dark side of these developments and of the humanitarian logic operating within international law.

This conference will bring together scholars to think critically about the ideology, institutions, practices, and technologies that condition modern humanitarianism and its relation to international law. For more information and a list of confirmed speakers, please visit http://www.lpil.org/events/humanitarianism.


Write On! Irish Yearbook of International Law

backlit_keyboardThis installment of Write On!, our periodic compilation of calls for papers, includes calls to submit papers to the Irish Yearbook of International Law, as follows:

► The Irish Yearbook of International Law is now accepting submissions for the next Volume (Volume XIII (2018)). Edited by Professor Siobhán Mullaly (incoming at NUI Galway) and Professor Fiona de Londras (University of Birmingham) — members of IntLawGrrls — and published by Hart Publishing, the Yearbook is internationally peer reviewed and publishes longer and shorter articles on all areas of international law.

The Irish Yearbook of International Law is committed to the publication of articles of general interest in international law as well as articles that have a particular connection to, or relevance for, Ireland. Articles are usually 10,000 to 12,000 words in length, although longer pieces will be considered. The Yearbook also publishes a small number of shorter articles and notes, which should not exceed 6,000 words.

Authors are asked to conform to the Hart Publishing house style. Submissions, comprising a brief 100-word abstract, article and confirmation of exclusive submission, should be sent to both Siobhán Mullally (siobhan.mullally@nuigalway.ie) and Fiona de Londras(f.delondras@bham.ac.uk) by October 31 2017. Initial inquiries can be directed to either or both Editors.
