CFP: Critical Studies in Improvisation / Études critiques en improvisation (CSI-ÉCI)

Critical Studies in Improvisation / Études critiques en improvisation (CSI-ÉCI) invites submissions for a special issue with the theme, “Just Improvisation: Enriching child protection law through musical techniques, discourses, and pedagogies, guest edited by Sara Ramshaw and Paul Stapleton. We seek contributions from scholars and practitioners with an interest in exploring the possibility of transposing the ”language” of musical improvisation―that is, its discourses, practices and pedagogies―into the “key” or discipline of law, with a specific focus on child protection law.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The disciplined practice of improvisation as a tool for protecting children
  • Teaching improvisation to child protection professionals
  • The advantages of improvising child protection law
  • The dark side of improvisation in child protection law
  • The improvisatory judge
  • The benefits and dangers of improvisational lawyering/advocacy
  • The increased demand for legal improvisation in the area of child protection/family law

Please submit expressions of interest for potential essays by September 30, 2015. Complete papers will be accepted until December 31, 2015.
