:: CFP :: In celebration of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, the theme of the British Legal History Conference 2015 at the University of Reading (July 8-11 2015) is ‘Law: Challenges to Authority and the Recognition of Rights’. While different forms and ideas of authority have shaped law historically, law has also been moulded by, and influenced, challenges to authority brought to assert and seek recognition of rights. Magna Carta resulted from one such challenge, but challenges to social, economic, political and doctrinal authorities existed before Magna Carta and have continued to occur since. The British Legal History Conference 2015 is concerned to explore how law, both public and private, has been shaped by, and shaped, challenges to authority brought to seek the recognition of rights. It welcomes papers which examine how law, legal processes and legal actors have developed in response to such challenges to authority, and indeed how an understanding of the law has itself often influenced these challenges. While the conference will explore challenges of different natures and from different epochs, proposals concerned with Magna Carta, and particularly its impact beyond England, are welcomed. In addition to this general call for papers, the 2015 Conference will also include a special session for young and less experienced scholars. The organisers welcome proposals from postgraduate and early career researchers for this session. Proposal for papers should be submitted by 30 September 2014. More information is available here.
