Call for Participation: 2020 Social Equality in the Sharing Economy Symposium:
The “sharing economy,” also known as the “gig” or “on-demand” economy, is transforming the way people work, eat, commute, and travel by seamlessly connecting suppliers and consumers via app-based technology platforms. It provides flexible income earning opportunities for one side and convenience and low prices for the other. However, it also creates a dizzying array of policy problems for communities of all sizes—from tax evasion and pollution to price discrimination, worker precarity, and violent protests. The Indiana Journal of Law and Social Equality (IJLSE), in collaboration with Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and the Ostrom Workshop, is hosting a symposium on February 13th and 14th at the Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana to offer and debate solutions to these complex and fast-moving set of challenges.
Designed to stimulate interdisciplinary research and collaboration, as well as to amplify existing research, the Social Equality in the “Sharing Economy?” Symposium will consist of a series of keynotes, panel discussions, and paper presentations from a range of voices.
We invite original paper submissions from all relevant disciplines for the Symposium.
Papers should be between 5,000-15,000 words including footnotes. Citations must comply with The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (please put “Symposium Submission” in the subject line) or submitted to the IJLSE Scholastica page (please put “Symposium Submission” in the keywords). Papers received by 5:00 p.m. on November 27th will be afforded full consideration. Authors accepted and agreeing to present at the Symposium must provide a right of first refusal of publication to IJLSE. Flights and accommodations will be provided to one author of each accepted paper.
For questions regarding participation and topics, please email Professor Abbey Stemler.
