Call for Papers – Bi-annual Conference of The International Society for Chinese Law and History

June 10-12, 2021「2021中国法律与历史国际学会在线双年会」征求论文启事

The International Society for Chinese Law and History (ISCLH) is pleased to announce a call for paper for its Bi-annual Conference, to be held online on June 10 to 12, 2021. Established in 2013, ISCLH is now the primary international intellectual hub for Chinese legal historians. It hosts a workshop in North America every two years, and a larger conference in East Asia in the intervening years. Previously we have held our bi-annual conference at Fudan University, Shanghai (2015), China University of Political Science and Law, Beijing (2017), and National Taipei University, Taipei (2019). The ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic might restrict our ability to travel and in-person scholarly exchanges, but we are committed to provide a forum for sharing the latest scholarship of Chinese legal history and facilitating intellectual conversations for scholars interested in Chinese law and history.

The conference welcomes any works on Chinese legal history, regardless of chronological focus, methodology, and disciplines. Authors are invited to submit panel proposals, individual paper proposals, and roundtable proposals to the Conference Submission System by March 1, 2021. If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit the relevant author information and an abstract (up to 300 words) of the paper. Panel conveners should submit a panel proposal (up to 300 words) descripting the topic of the panel, along with abstracts of individual papers and information of the potential chair and/or discussants. Roundtable organizers should submit a proposal (up to 300 words) explaining the theme of the roundtable and the relevant personal information of each panelists (maximum 4 panelists). Panel proposal will be given priority, but as in the past, the committee is happy to receive individual paper proposals, which will then be formed into panels at the conference organizing committee’s discretion.

The conference will be held in English and Chinese. The Conference organizers will review all panel and individual paper proposals, with notifications to be sent out via email by March 31.
