Call for papers: homophobia, transphobia (legal and academic contributions)
The Italian association "Avvocatura per i Diritti LGBT - Rete Lenford" is calling for papers. The deadline for submissions of abstracts is 30 December 2012. The call is aiming at submissions of a legal and academic nature relating to homophobic and transphobic hate crimes (more details can be found in the attached document).
Contributions can be made in English, French, Italian, or Spanish.
The final publication is expected to have an impact at academic and political level, in particular in view of the Italian context where various bills on hate crime were turned down n the last years, while new general elections are taking place in early 2013. However, the impact is also expected to be broader since the publication will be in English.
