Graduate Student Activities for Berlin

An international committee involving North American, European and Asian sociolegal societies has begun planning for the Graduate Student Activities events in Berlin this summer. Unlike previous workshops for graduates that precede the Law and Society Association annual meetings, the events comprising the GSA will be interspersed throughout the Berlin meeting and will take advantage of the Friday afternoon pause that has been inserted into the regular meeting schedule. Also different from workshops in past years, next summerís events will be open to all graduate student attendees in an effort to broaden international communication among the next generation of scholars.

The GSA program will consist of panel presentations, seminar sessions, and informal discussions to provide a forum for student networking with faculty who write in the field. In addition, there will be events designed to promote dialogue among graduate students and faculty participants about studentsí individual research projects. High on the planning agenda are events that will bring regional intellectual projects and styles into conversation at this multinational event.

As a part of the GSA, we expect to have a website available soon that will permit graduate students to coordinate housing and knowledge of Berlin nightspots (hopefully to be shared!) as well as find others with similar academic interests.

Many participating associations will provide a limited amount of funding for selected graduate students. The Research Committee on sociology of law anticipate being able to partially fund two Phd students coming from C countries to attend the Berlin meetings with the expectation that these students will participate in the GSA activities. (Interested students may contact Luigi Cominelli RCSL Secretary.) We especially want to encourage graduate students to submit proposals to present their work within the regular program as well. A call for participation in the Graduate Student Activities will be ready shortly. 

Law and Society Association members of the GSA planning committee include Tom Baker, Davina Cooper, Katharina Heyer, and Wes Pue.

International members include Morag McDermot, Bronwen Morgan, Masayuki Murayama, Konstanze Plett, Stefan Machura, and Barbara Heitzman.

Jon Goldberg-Hiller is the coordinator.
