Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Nov 12, 2012
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Patrick Schmidt, Political Science and Erik Larson, Sociology, will present “Getting a Read on Law & Society—a.k.a. L&S on L&S.” The Law & Society Association, an interdisciplinary professional association of social scientists and legal academics, selected Professors Larson and Schmidt to produce the Law and Society Reader (L&S) II, an edited volume of readings from the past 25 years of the Law & Society Review. The project gave the two an opportunity to consider sociolegal scholarly themes  while also attending to changes in education since the initial L&S came out two decades ago.  Larson and Schmidt will provide an overview of interdisciplinary concerns in law and society research, discuss the process of selecting and editing articles, and reflect on the synergies between scholarship and teaching.
All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
