9/27-9/29 Midwest Law & Society Retreat
In recent years, the Upper Midwest has become a leading source of law and society scholarship. To promote that development, the Institute for Legal Studies organized an interdisciplinary retreat in Madison to bring together faculty and graduate student scholars from the region's diverse social science and law programs -- including Wisconsin, Northwestern, Chicago, Iowa, Minnesota, and the American Bar Foundation -- for a weekend of intellectual exchange and community building. The retreat offered participants an opportunity to share research, discuss professional issues, receive feedback on works in progress, and develop future projects with regional colleagues. The program included a lively mix of small group discussions, presentations, debates, and social gatherings, designed to encourage spirited dialog and collegial engagement. To ensure that the conference remained informal and personal, attendance was limited to 65 people for the inaugural session. The retreat will become a biennial event.

10/11-10/12/02 The Role of Theology in the Liberal State and the Globalized World. Interdisciplinary conference hosted by Len Kaplan and Charles Cohen, Professor of History and Director of the Religious Studies Program. Cosponsored by the Project for Law and Humanities, with support from the Anonymous Fund, the UW Law School, the Moss/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies, the Religious Studies Program, Edgewood College and the University Book Store.
ILS sponsored a two day conference at the Law School that brought together 22 distinguished panelists (including 2 MacArthur "genius" grant winners) representing the fields of law, history, philosophy, political science, religious studies, Middle Eastern studies, and South Asian studies to discuss The Place of Theology in the Liberal State and the Globalized World. The event was a tremendous success, drawing substantial crowds from the University and the greater Madison community. The conference was hosted by Len Kaplan and Charles Cohen (Professor of History and Director of the Religious Studies Program).
The conference was a pioneering attempt not simply to raise the issue of theology's influence on state sovereignty, justice, and jurisprudence from a legal perspective, but to address it both by promoting interdisciplinary dialogue and by engaging scholars of four major world religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism. The organizers expect that the book of conference papers, to be published by UW Press, will set an intellectual agenda for taking theology's latent and manifest impacts on the state seriously.

November

11/2/02 Wisconsin Symposium on Legal History: Law, Family and State Organization in the Early Modern Atlantic World. Hosted by Richard Ross.
ILS hosted the inaugural offering of the Wisconsin Symposium on Legal History, which will be a biennial event. This year's conference, organized by Richard Ross, brought together law professors, historians, political scientists, and sociologists to explore interrelationships between the organization and governance of the family and of the state from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries. The theme was treated comparatively, looking at the United States, England and France. About 30 people attended, and discussion was rich.
Participants in the conference focused on a number of issues. Here are a few. Julia Adams (U. of Michigan Sociology) and Rachel Weil (Cornell History) asked how the metaphor of the state as an extended family (or the family as a little commonwealth) offered a way for controversialists to call for reforms in existing states and families—these could never live up to the ideal to which they were compared. Mark Brandon (Vanderbilt Law) considered in what ways the family might serve as what Tocqueville called an "intermediary institution" in the U.S. constitutional order, one that mediated between state and individual and resisted tendencies towards overconcentration of power in the government. Finally, Julie Hardwick (Texas History) and Carole Shammas (U. of Southern California History) looked at how the state reinforced, limited, and shaped parental control of the extended household (including children, illegitimate children, and laboring dependents).
