LERA: Call for Symposia Proposals
Deadline: February 17, 2012
The LERA Program Committee has issued a call for symposia proposals (and papers) for stimulating, creative, and controversial symposia related to the theme of "New Economic Realities: Risk, Inequality and Workplace" as well as other proposals that deal with topics of current interest and the mission of the Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA).
LERA encourages submissions from the perspectives of multiple disciplines – including but not limited to economics, sociology, political science, labor and employment law, industrial relations, and human resource studies – and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, including investors, managers, workers and unions. Session proposals for only academic symposia will be considered. LERA especially encourages submissions from researchers whose academic appointment or research interests are best served by attendance at the ASSA.
To submit an online proposal (and to get complete information), visit the LERA website at:
Those wishing to submit single papers rather than sessions are welcome to submit those as well, and details can be found online at the page listed above.
Younger academics and researchers engaged in applied research are also specially encouraged to submit.
Proposals must be submitted or reach the LERA Office no later than February 17, 2012. Contact LERAoffice@illinois.edu if you have any questions.
