2nd Global Conference
Experiencing Prison

Thursday 19th May – Saturday 21st May 2011
Warsaw, Poland

Call for Papers
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary
conference marks the continuation of a project
dedicated to the study of the experience of
imprisonment.

Imprisonment has become the dominant form of punishment in most societies across the world. It may occur prior to trial, or as a result of sentencing by a properly constituted court. Imprisonment without trial or due process occurs in various forms in most societies across the world, mostly sanctioned by the state itself, sometimes used as a political strategy by military, ideological, political or religious groups within a state, or by groups desirous of becoming a state.

We welcome contributions about the experience of incarceration across the entire range of
perspectives, including legal, criminological, historical, fictional, phenomenological,
biographical and autobiographical.  Contributions are welcomed from former prisoners,
detainees, incarcerated asylum seekers, former prisoners of war, political prisoners or those detained because of nationalist, religious or other convictions.  All genres and media will be considered, in order to examine the widest possible range of representations, past and contemporary, which communicate the experience and nature of imprisonment. Contributions will be welcome from those who are involved with the delivery of incarceration, as well as those who seek to ameliorate incarceration by providing therapeutic drama, literacy, education, counselling, religious support and other services.

Papers will also be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 26th November 2010. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 1st April 2011.

300 word abstracts should be submitted simultaneously to both Organising Chairs;
abstracts may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF formats with the following information and in this order:

a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract
E-mails should be entitled: Prison Abstract
Submission.

Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline).

SANDEE PROPOSALS

Call for Research Pre-Proposals – Economics of Environmental Changes
Deadline: December 15th 2010
The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) is a regional
network that brings together and strengthens South Asian researchers and institutions interested in the interconnections
between development and the environment. SANDEE invites you to submit research pre-proposals
on the economics of climate change, urban environmental management and other relevant environmental
issues in South Asia. Multi-disciplinary and multi-country research projects with appropriate methodological
innovations are highly encouraged. Pre-proposals, if accepted, will lead to an invitation to submit a full research
proposal.
1. Economics of Climate Change
South Asian economies need to develop a variety of strategies to adapt to climate change and reduce their
own green house gas emissions. Thus, SANDEE is soliciting proposals in two areas: a) Policy reforms and
market instruments for low carbon growth. What market and policy instruments can be used to reduce green
house gas emissions? What are the co-benefits of local pollution and green house gas reduction strategies?
What are the costs of shifting to new energy technologies? What are the bottlenecks to using global instruments
such as REDD and carbon markets? b) The benefits, costs and distributional impacts of specific adaptation
strategies. What is the economic viability of 'adaptation instruments' such as insurance, improved natural
barriers or institutional responses? What are some benefits and costs of adaptation?
2. Economics of Environmental Management
Dirty water, solid waste, toxic chemicals, and indoor and outdoor air pollution have serious implications for human
health and productivity. Most South Asian countries have laws to regulate pollution but these are not well
implemented. How do we design appropriate policies and strategies to improve municipal solid waste management?
How effective are current waste management and recycling regulations? What policy instruments (taxes, subsidies,
bans, user-fees, campaigns etc.) are successful in reducing congestion, strengthening safe disposal of toxic waste,
and improving air and water quality? What are the distributional outcomes associated with environmental policy
instruments? How do we account for environmental costs in designing economic policies?
In addition to the above two priority areas, SANDEE will accept proposals related to natural resource use
and management. Research proposals can be in the form of case studies, analytical work based on secondary
or primary data or theoretical examinations. Primary investigators should have prior training in economics at
the Masters or PhD level and pre-proposals that do not have a strong economics component will not be
considered. Institutional affiliation is required for receiving support. Pre-proposals will be evaluated on their
academic merit and policy significance.
SANDEE will collect proposals throughout the next 12 months. However, in order to be considered for the
summer 2011 round of research competition, please send concept notes by December 15th 2010. Grants
size is on average 20,000 USD for a one to two year period. Larger budgets are considered if a multidisciplinary
research team of natural and social scientists are involved with a clear definition of roles and tasks. Detailed
guidelines are provides on SANDEE's website. Concept notes must be uploaded on SANDEE's website at
www.sandeeonline.com. Please contact us at info@sandeeonline.org, if you have additional queries.
