Call for Applications: ASLH Student Research Colloquium, 2023

June 1, 2023

The American Society for Legal History will host its tenth annual Student Research Colloquium (SRC) on Wednesday, October 25, and Thursday, October 26, 2023, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.  Each year, the SRC brings eight graduate students to the site of the ASLH annual meeting to discuss their in-progress research projects with each other and with ASLH-affiliated scholars.

Target applicants include early-post-coursework Ph.D. students and historically minded law students.  All students whose research touches on legal-historical themes are encouraged to apply, whatever the chronological or geographical focus.  Applicants who have not yet had an opportunity to interact with the ASLH are welcome, as are those who have never received any formal training in legal history.  A student may present a paper at the annual meeting and participate in the SRC in the same year.

The ASLH will at least partially and, in many cases, fully reimburse students’ travel, hotel, and conference-registration costs.

To apply, please submit the following three items to John Wertheimer at:  srcproposals@aslh.net:

  • a cover letter that describes, among other things, how far along you are and approximately how many years remain in your present course of study;
  • an up-to-date CV; and
  • a two-page, single-spaced research statement that contains a working title and describes the in-progress research project that you would like to present at the colloquium.

Application deadline: June 1, 2023.
