March 2 - March 3

The South-North Exchange on Theory, Culture and Law

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

The South-North Exchange on Theory, Culture and Law (SNX)

Promoting Critical Theories and Praxis in the Legal Cultures of the Americas

Montevideo, Uruguay, March 2-3, 2023

 

Organized by

Universidad Católica del Uruguay

Universidad Alberto Hurtado

 

Sponsored by

Latin American Legal Studies

Latina and Latino Critical Legal Theory (LatCrit)

 

The South-North Exchange on Theory, Culture and Law (SNX) is designed to bring together critical theorists from various disciplines and regions of the hemisphere to discuss problems in the application of theory to current social problems and policy issues.

 

The basic concept is to create a venue focused on South-North relations, and on issues that affect or constitute South-North polarities, to strengthen critical theory and praxis in hemispheric terms.

 

In this new version of the SNX we are looking for papers that invite us to reflect on the new challenges, opportunities and difficulties to influence the legal cultures of the different countries of the continent through the development and promotion of critical legal theories and perspectives.

 

It is in our interest that all selected papers have a comparative law component, as this helps to influence reflections that transcend the boundaries of a particular legal culture.

 

Particularly, we invite papers across disciplinary boundaries and from all constituencies on the following topics, as well as other topics you might suggest of relevance to the Global South:

 

  • Rule of Law.
  • Human Rights.
  • Natural Resources and the Environment.
  • Minority Rights.
  • Legal and Interdisciplinary Education.

 

The conference’s proceedings will be held in Spanish and English (with simultaneous translation).

 

To be considered for participation, please send a brief abstract (not exceeding 500-600 words) of your presentation and your contact information by December 20, 2022 to: hurojas@uahurtado.cl, alberto.pino@uai.cl and siv7@pitt.edu. Decisions will be announced in January 2023.

 

Latin American Legal Studies will publish a symposium volume to include selected papers from the conference. Please indicate in your abstract if you are interested in this publication opportunity.

 

The face-to-face discussion of the papers will allow participants to revise the latest versions of their presentations, committing themselves to submit the final text by April 30, 2023. This will give the editorial team enough time to submit the texts for refereeing, request changes if necessary, and move towards the publication of the symposium by Latin American Legal Studies. The selected articles will be published in Spanish and English and Latin American Legal Studies will cover the costs of the respective translations.
