Scholars have recently applied the Thirteenth Amendment to a number of contemporary problems ranging from minimum labor standards to mass incarceration. This Conference aims to gather scholars of the Thirteenth Amendment from law schools and academic departments throughout the United States and beyond. This conference focuses specifically on the ways that the Thirteenth Amendment can be used now in legislation, litigation and discussions aimed at reducing economic injustice in the United States.
We also welcome analysis that interrogates the interactions between economic justice and other forms of subordination such as race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion and immigration status. This conference will be the inaugural event of the Thirteenth Amendment Project, an interdisciplinary association of scholars of labor, class, race, caste and poverty at law schools and universities throughout the United States and the wider world.
