Federalist Society Junior Faculty Workshops: Request for Proosals

January 20, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

From the Federalist Society:

We are pleased to announce that the Federalist Society Faculty Division is sponsoring a new round of Junior Faculty Workshops.  These workshops are intended to provide a structured—but relatively informal—environment in which six or so faculty members from different law schools can gather to spend a day workshopping each others’ papers, followed by a group meal.  The workshops can focus on a particular subject area or cover a broad range of interests, depending on the organizer’s preference.  

We envision workshop participants consisting primarily of junior tenure track faculty (defined as people who have been in tenure track positions less than seven years), but also encompassing fellowship recipients or doctoral candidates in appropriate cases.  A junior faculty member will be responsible for organizing and directing the workshop, and will receive a budget for the event.  Wherethe participants are in relatively close geographical proximity, the maximum budget will generally be $1,000.  Where some degree of air/rail travel and lodging will be necessary, we may increase thebudget to as much as $3,000 to help defray travel costs. Organizers should plan to hold theworkshop sometime in 2014.

We invite interested junior faculty members to submit a workshop proposal setting forth a topic, date, location, schedule, list of potential participants, and description of anticipated expenditures. Proposals should be sent via email to anthony.deardurff@fed-soc.org no later than Friday, March 7, 2014.
