About the Workshop

  • The Rural Reconciliation Project at the University of Nebraska College of Law, along with the University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law, will host a workshop this fall for scholars of all levels and disciplines whose work engages with the law and its relation to rural people and places. 
  • The workshop will be held via Zoom on Friday, November 17, 2023, from approximately 9 am until 4 pm CST, with the final schedule to be determined by participant interest. This workshop will provide a forum for a range of scholars to share and receive feedback on works-in-progress on any topic that addresses or investigates rurality and the law, including legal issues viewed through the lens of rurality, rural geographies, or rural-urban differences. 
  • They also anticipate at least one incubator session for scholars to receive feedback on nascent ideas. Participants will be expected to attend the full day of Zoom sessions and read and comment on other works.
  • How to Submit?
  • If you are interested in workshopping an idea or an in-progress paper, please submit a title and abstract to Hannah Haksgaard at [email protected] no later than Monday, August 21, 2023. Indicate on your abstract whether you will be workshopping a paper or want to present it at an incubator session.
  • Final drafts will be due October 30 so they may be circulated to other participants. Those presenting at an incubator session need only submit a final abstract.
  • They also invite particularly interested scholars to attend even without workshopping a paper or presenting an idea for future work.
  • If you wish to attend all or part of the conference – either as a general participant or as a commentator – please also e-mail [email protected] by August 21, 2023, with some background and context about your proposed engagement (i.e., area of expertise, whether you would like to participate as a formal discussant or general workshop member).
