Junior Faculty Workshops: Request for Proposals
The Federalist Society's Faculty Division is pleased to sponsor 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. Where the 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 the budget to as much as $3,000 to help defray travel costs.
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 email@example.com no later than Friday, March 15, 2013. Organizers should plan to hold their workshop some time in 2013.
