Call-for-Papers: Pop-Up Poverty Law Conference

Call-for-Papers: Pop-Up Poverty Law Conference

This is an open invitation for people to submit poverty law-related works for presentation at a pop-up virtual poverty law conference to take place on Friday, March 25. With in-person poverty law conferences indefinitely delayed because of COVID, the goal of this virtual poverty law gathering is to give people a chance to share works and hear about the work of others. Our sense is that both community and feedback has been challenging for many academics (pre-tenure and tenure alike) because of the pandemic; hopefully, this pop up conference will be a good way to share your work and get feedback on works at all stage of writing.

Details: If you are interested in participating please fill out this form, https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfm9mLNG6BTMsiWddG3aXl21LZAYTBVEquAaqLENBHFrxn66Q/viewform?usp=sf_link. The submission deadline is Feb. 15, 2022. If you have any difficulties using the form or have questions or additional comments, please email erosser@wcl.american.edu.
