The American Bar Foundation (ABF) invites scholars to join our intellectual community for the 2013-2014 academic year. We encourage national and international scholars on leave or sabbatical to take advantage of our diverse community and excellent facilities. We offer an office, telephone, and computer, but no stipend.
Preference will be given to visitors whose scholarship coincides with the research agenda of the ABF, and who will be in residence full-time for all or part of the year. Summer visits are possible. Visitors are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the ABF, including a weekly seminar.
If you have an interest in this opportunity, please send an email to Robert Nelson at email@example.com, Subject Line: Visiting Scholars Program, which states (1) the topic on which you are working, (2) the preferred dates for residence, (3) the days each week you would expect to be at the ABF, and (4) attach a CV. Applications should be received by April 1, 2013. Applications will be considered as space allows. The ABF Appointments Committee will review applications and prospective visitors will be notified accordingly.
TRAILS, ASA's peer-reviewed online database of teaching resources, is seeking sociology of law teaching resources—course syllabi, class activities, assignments, PowerPoints, or anything else you have related to law and society or sociology of law courses.
Materials can be for undergraduate or graduate courses.
ASA members can purchase a subscription to TRAILS for $25 a year, with a discount for those with departmental affiliate memberships (subscriptions are a prerequisite for those who wish to submit); once resources begin to be submitted in reasonable numbers, the site will be of great help to those of us who want to revamp our courses, find new ways of teaching particular concepts, or help graduate students or new colleagues preparing to teach law and society for the first time.
Submissions are processed, and subscriptions purchased, through the TRAILS site at http://trails.asanet.org; while they cannot be submitted to area editors directly, Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur (firstname.lastname@example.org), the law and society editor for TRAILS, is happy to answer questions about the site.
