  • Critical Perspectives on Tax Policy Workshop

    This workshop will be open to the public at no charge to attend.  A reception with keynote speaker Dorothy Brown, will be held on Friday 9/14/12 in Room 115 at apprxominately 5:30 p.m.

     

    Call for Papers:

     

    Critical tax scholars ask why the tax structure is the way it is and what impact tax policies, politics and rhetoric have on historically disempowered groups.  Particularly in an election year, attention to the interdisciplinary ways in which social meaning is created through tax policy and inclusion of "outsider" perspectives on the study of public finance are crucial.  This is a call for individual paper presentations or incubator ideas that look at taxation from a critical perspective. Critical perspectives on tax policy for this workshop will be limited to a focus on at least one of the following topics: race, ethnicity or immigration status, socio-economic status, gender or gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, family status, or disability.  Those examining tax policy in a critical way from a legal, social science, humanities, or comparative/international perspective are all encouraged to participate.  This second annual workshop will connect scholars working on problems of inequality and public finance across the academy, welcome new members into the critical perspectives community, provide collaborative support for our research, and transmit our ideas to a wider audience.  Professor Dorothy Brown of Emory Law School will be the conference's keynote speaker.

     

    Abstracts no longer than 500 words including name, affiliation, and contact information should be submitted no later than June 30, 2011 via e-mail to Camille Walsh at camwalsh@uw.edu.  Participants will be notified whether their proposal was accepted no later than July 15, 2011.
