Welcome to the home page of H-LAW, a Humanities Social Sciences Online discussion network sponsored by the American Society for Legal History. H-LAW solicits discussion of issues relating to teaching and research in the history of all legal traditions: common-law, civil-law, and all other legal systems.
I am hoping to organize a panel or find a panel being organized for the ASLH annual meeting for 2017. Which means a deadline of March 15th.
I would like to offer a paper looking at how 19th-Century advocates of public schools identified the elimination of crime through religious education as a one of their selling points for tax funding for schools, and how that argument evolved over time. I can see this paper fitting in with papers on topics on the history of church-state doctrine, on criminal law and criminal offenders, education and the state, etc.
