Following yesterday's call for Tax Profs to become more engaged in the Law & Society Annual Meeting, David Brennen (Mercer) makes a similar plea on behalf of the Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities (ASLCH):
ASLCH's website states:Another TaxProf Blog tip of the hat to Professor Brennen for his efforts!
ASLCH is dedicated to establishing links between scholars who work in both law and the humanities. We sponsor an annual conference where interested scholars from disciplines including Law, English, Comparative Literature, History, Philosophy, Classics, Linguistics, Religion, Anthropology, and Cultural Studies can meet and discuss their latest work. The ASLCH hopes to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship that brings together the best of the various humanities and legal approaches and methods.I like ASLCH because the panels are centered around broad theoretical themes, of which tax law may be a component. I am working on alternatives to the traditional law and economics approach to law, with a particular focus on law and market theory as it relates to the federal income tax exemption. If anyone is working on something similar and is interested in possibly putting together a thematic panel which is exclusively (or only partially) tax-focused, please let me know.
