Final Logistical Arrangements

1) We have revised the programme to take account of cancellations and the resulting re-organization of some panels. Please look at this programme to double-check the time and the room of your panel as they might have been changed. The final, revised programme, corrected as of 12 March 2018, is available here.

The programme with abstracts is available here.

A short timetable listing panels, times, and rooms is available here.

2) If you are a chair of a panel, please contact your panel members as soon as you are able and make sure panelists know how long their presentations should be and confirm the date and time. Contact information of conference participants has been sent to you via email.

3) Every conference room will have a screen, projector, internet, computer, zoom/skype, video recording, microphone and a whiteboard.  This means participants need nothing more than a USB key, or they can directly access documents and presentations on line.

4) Georgetown Law has graciously opened its library to all who are registered for the conference.

5) Lunch will be provided both days. A reception will be held on Friday evening. Coffee, tea, drinks and light snacks will be provided throughout the day. Thank you to Georgetown Law for making these arrangements.

6) The conference hotel (Hyatt Regency Washington) is walking distance from Georgetown Law School, the conference venue.

The Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities is an organization of scholars engaged in interdisciplinary, humanistically-oriented legal scholarship. The Association brings together a wide range of people engaged in scholarship on legal history, legal theory and jurisprudence, political theory, law and cultural studies, law and anthropology, law and literature, law and the performing arts, and legal hermeneutics. We want to encourage dialogue across and among these fields about issues of interpretation, identity, and values, about authority, obligation, and justice, and about law's role as a constituent part of cultures and communities.

If you have any general questions about the conference, please do not hesitate to contact Karl Shoemaker, President, at kbshoemaker [at] wisc [dot] edu. Special thanks to Hyo Yoon Kang and Connal Parsley of Kent Law School for serving as
co-chairs of the program committee.
