CFP – Climate Change in Former Colonies: Challenges of Property and History

Washington and Lee University School of Law’s Law and History Center, in partnership with Virginia Sea Grant, will host a symposium on Climate Change in the Former Colonies: Challenges of Property and History.  Recognizing the unique impact that the colonial legal experience continues to have on Eastern states, the symposium will focus on the application of legal historical research to contemporary problems and opportunities in the areas of policy-making, property rights, and hazard resilience in coastal communities.

Those interested in submitting a paper should email proposals to Dr. Jill Fraley, Director of the Washington and Lee University Center for Law and History, at fraleyj@wlu.edu. Each proposal should include a 200 word abstract, paper title, and author(s) name(s), affiliations. Graduate students seeking scholarships, please include a C.V. and a statement regarding whether or not (and what) funds are available from your home institution. All proposals are due by JUNE 30, 2012.
