Event description

Description

Overview

The Institute of Australian Geographers Legal Geography Study Group, supported by the Centre for Resources, Energy and Environmental Law and the Institute for International Law and Humanities at Melbourne Law School, The University of Melbourne, invites you to participate in the 2017 Australian Legal Geography Symposium.

The symposium offers a collegial environment to be kept abreast of the research of study group members, to broaden our network, to support PhD scholarship, and to explore research synergies and collaborations.

Details

Up to twenty participants will be able to present a lightly developed work in progress paper with the purpose of receiving constructive peer guidance, and with the aim of drawing connections with the research of others. The overarching goal of the symposium will be to form research themes for forthcoming conferences for which participants will further develop their papers, and in doing so to highlight our collective scholarly contribution.

PhD scholars are especially encouraged to contribute to the symposium.

All attendees are expected to participate by presenting a work in progress paper.

Symposium Themes

Participants’ papers should explore a topic, method or concept in the field of legal geography. Framed by the reflective keynote address from legal geography pioneer, Professor Lee Godden, the symposium will allow participants to recall the progress the Institute of Australian Geographers Legal Geography Study Group has made in less than a decade of shared scholarship and to consider future research within the field.

Program

The symposium will be held over one evening and one day, beginning at 5.45pm on Thursday 16 February 2017 with the keynote address by Professor Lee Godden at Melbourne Law School. Dinner will begin at 7.30pm, signifying the start of our convivial discussions.

The symposium will resume from 8am on Friday 17 February 2017 with a legal geography fieldtrip at the Queen Victoria Market before moving to Melbourne Law School for a series of 5 to 10 minute presentations, an additional keynote, and a collaborative session where participants will map out synergies and future research agenda. The symposium will conclude by 4.30pm.

The cost of participation includes dinner (not drinks) and catering throughout the symposium.

Abstracts

In advance of purchasing a ticket, and before Friday 18 November 2016, please send an Abstract of your proposed work in progress paper (no more than 300 words) to brad.jessup@unimelb.edu.au using this pro-forma document.

Participation will be capped at the first twenty abstracts/registrants.
