Carleton University, Ottawa.

The Annual Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities Graduate Student Workshop will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2019 (the day before the annual conference begins).

Applications are due November 30, 2018.

The workshop is designed for graduate students who are undertaking research that cuts across the disciplines of law, cultural studies, literature, philosophy, legal studies, anthropology, political science, and history, among others. The workshop is designed to afford graduate students the opportunity to experience the LCH community in a smaller venue with more sustained contact with one another and some faculty. The workshop also provides graduate students with an opportunity to discuss their research projects in a small group setting in anticipation of such things as job talks and publication.


Applications to the workshop should consist of a current curriculum vitae (5-page maximum), an abstract of a current project not exceeding 700 words, as well as a short (5-page maximum) text relating to that project. This text could be a case, literary work, a time-line, a photo, a sound or video file, or some other relevant text. The text you choose should be something that helps you reflect on the subject of your work, and your methods of analysis. If you choose to use audio, visual, or audio-visual materials please be judicious in regard to time length.

Applicants whose proposals are accepted will receive some support from ASLCH towards an extra night's accommodation as well as some support (varying, depending on distance traveled) towards the cost of transportation to the conference location. While those who participated in a previous workshop may re-apply and participate again, should space and/or funds be limited, we will prioritize new participants.

Please email your applications to: Mark Antaki ( and Jothie Rajah ( by November 30, 2018, with the subject line: ASLCH Grad Workshop Application.
