Call for Abstracts: 2015 Annual Conference Law, Religion, and American Healthcare
United States
Massachusetts
12/01/2014

Call for Abstracts: 2015 Annual Conference Law, Religion, and American Healthcare

May 8 - 9, 2015 Cambridge, Massachusetts

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce plans for our 2015 annual conference, this year entitled: “Law, Religion, and American Health Care.”

Religion and medicine have historically gone hand in hand, but increasingly have come into conflict in the U.S. as health care has become both more secular and more heavily regulated.  Law has a dual role here, simultaneously generating conflict between religion and health care, for example through new coverage mandates or legally permissible medical interventions that violate religious norms, while also acting as a tool for religious accommodation and protection of conscience. 

This conference, and anticipated edited volume, will aim to: (1) identify the various ways in which law intersects with religion and health care in the United States; (2) understand the role of law in creating or mediating conflict between religion and health care; and (3) explore potential legal solutions to allow religion and health care to simultaneously flourish in a culturally diverse nation.

We welcome submissions on both broad conceptual questions and more specific policy issues.  Potential topics might include:

Analysis of the First Amendment, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and other federal, state, and local legal provisions that come into play at the intersection between religion and health care

The Affordable Care Act and employer-based health care coverage, including the contraceptives mandate and related court decisions

Legal obligations and accommodations of religious health care organizations

Protection (or not) of health professional conscience

Health care decision-making for minors with religious parents

Religious objection v. discriminatory behavior

Informed consent and information flow, e.g., religious objection to providing certain information, inclusion of religious information in consent disclosures, etc.

“Medicalization” of religious beliefs, e.g., regulation of homosexual conversion therapy

Abortion policy, including clinic protests and protections, and its relationship to religion

Embryonic stem cell policy and its relationship to religion

End-of-life care, including assisted suicide, and its relationship to religion

Complicity as both a legal and religious concept

Comparative analysis, e.g., between professions, health care practices, countries, etc.

Please note that this list is not meant to be exhaustive; we hope to receive abstracts related to the conference’s general theme even if a particular topic was not specifically listed here.  However, proposals that lack a clear linkage to all three aspects of the conference – law, religion, and health care – will not be considered.  Law will be treated broadly to include governmental policy decisions more generally.   Abstracts must propose or outline an argument/position, rather than merely stating a topic, in order to enable us to evaluate them.

In an effort to encourage interdisciplinary and international dialogue, we welcome submissions from legal scholars and lawyers, of course, but also from bioethicists, philosophers, scholars of religion and religious studies, clinicians, government officials and staff, international scholars and regulators discussing how their systems have handled these issues, and others who have a meaningful contribution to make on this topic.  We welcome submissions from advocacy organizations, think tanks, and others outside academia, but emphasize that this is a scholarly conference, and abstracts/papers will be held to academic standards of argumentation and support.

How to Participate

If you are interested in participating, please send a 1-page abstract of the paper you would plan to present to petrie-flom@law.harvard.edu as soon as possible, but not later than December 1, 2014.   If your abstract is selected, your final paper will be due on April 3, 2015, and you will be assigned a presentation slot for the conference dates.  Please note that presenters are expected to attend the conference for its full duration.  We will pay travel expenses for presenters who must travel to Cambridge; co-authored papers must name a single presenter.

In the past, we have successfully turned several of our conferences into edited volumes (e.g., with Oxford, MIT, Columbia, and Johns Hopkins University presses). If such a volume arises out of this conference, our expectation is that conference presenters will publish their papers with us as part of the edited volume.  Those who do not wish their work to appear in a potential edited volume should so indicate on the abstract. We will accept conference papers of all lengths and styles (e.g., law review, medical, philosophy, or policy journal, etc.), but chapters in conference volumes are generally limited to about 5,000 words.  Previous conference participants have been able to publish their submissions in different formats in multiple venues, for example both as a short book chapter and a longer law review article.

Attendance is free and open to the public, but space is limited.

Call for Papers: Policies and Politics of Care--National Conference for Physician-Scholars in the Social Sciences and Humanities

Call for Papers: Policies and Politics of Care--National Conference for Physician-Scholars in the Social Sciences and Humanities

April 18th-19th, 2015 University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

DEADLINE: February 1st, 2015

This conference is a biennial meeting for those committed to having dual training in clinical care and the social sciences and humanities inform each other in their academic work. This has historically provided a venue for graduates, trainees, and prospective students of MD-PhD training programs to build a community and present their research. This year we aim to expand to encompass scholars with a broader diversity of clinical training, including in nursing and social work, whose work also speaks to the core of this conference's organizing principle.

At the 2015 conference we are excited to explore the theme Policies and Politics of Care. Care lies at the core of a clinical relationship, but far from being an apolitical site of human compassion or technical skill, it is highly structured by broader social dynamics, market forces, and a (trans)national policy landscape. Our hybrid identities as both practitioners and researchers of care allow us a particular orientation toward care and caregiving, permitting us to tease out its historical and structural legacies, its lived experiential realities, the boundaries of its classification, and the aggregate effects of its policies on healthcare delivery, healthcare markets and health outcomes.

The planning committee invites you to submit an abstract of original research for presentation relevant to this theme. While we especially solicit work that investigates the connections between forms of care that occur within the walls of the clinic and the world outside, submissions on all topics and from individuals at all career stages are encouraged and will be considered.

Presentations may take the form of a 15 minute talk, poster, or “grand rounds”-style case presentation utilizing insights from your scholarly discipline. We ask that you limit your abstract submission to 350 words and include primary research question, methodological orientation, points of engagement with existing scholarship, and general conclusions. You may submit your abstracts via the form at: www.physicianscholars.blogspot.com/p/call-for-papers.html, where you will also find more information about the conference.

International Textile Research Centre Conference: ‘Trauma. Grief. Loss: the art of bereavement’

15th May 2015 University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, United Kingdom

Deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday 14th November 2014

Marking the death of someone who has died by the creation of art is a common practice in many cultures; from collective memorials of those who die in wars such as the Cenotaph memorial, to the private memorialisation of individuals through the creation of AIDS quilts and cloths embroidered with names. This conference seeks to address the idea of artists coming to terms with the death of someone close or confronting their own mortality by the creation of works of art.

We welcome proposals for papers of 20 minutes in length from artists, researchers and writers on subjects which address the theme of the conference through literary, visual and performing arts approaches which might include, but are not limited to:

• Analysis of an artist’s, performer’s, film-maker’s or writer’s work related to the subject.

• Cultural expressions of mourning

• Artistic depictions of grief

• Mourning and memory

• Contemporary mourning practices

• Public versus private rituals of mourning

• Creativity and bereavement

• Communal / community responses to bereavement

Papers will be selected based upon the quality of the proposal, the proposal’s ability to provoke critical exchange and debate, and opportunities for interaction between participants that will enable attendees to engage in an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and viewpoints.
