Call for Papers: Legal Histories of the 19th Amendment

November 30, 2018

The Stanford Center for Law and History invites paper submissions from graduate students for its second annual conference, which will center on the theme of the upcoming centennial of the 19th Amendment. SCLH’s goal is to bring together faculty, postdocs, and students for workshops, conferences, and lectures examining the relationships between law and history, broadly defined.

The one-day conference will be held on May 3, 2019, at Stanford Law School. It will include three panels featuring prominent legal historians presenting on suffrage, women’s rights, citizenship, and related themes. The conference will conclude with a keynote conversation with distinguished judges about women in the legal profession, past and present.

The conference organizers will select one graduate student as the winner of the SCLH Graduate Student Paper Prize. This student will present on a panel that includes papers at the intersection of women’s rights, family citizenship, and immigration. Funding for travel and housing will be provided.

A CV and 500 word abstract should be submitted online by Friday, November 30, 2018.
