Announcement of the Winner of 2021 AsianJLS Graduate Student Paper Competition



The Asian Journal of Law and Society is pleased to announce the winner of its inaugural Graduate Student Paper Competition in 2021. The winning paper is titled “Law and Digitality: Tracing Modern Epistemologies and Power” and written by Salwa Tabassum Hoque, a Ph.D. candidate in Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University (NYU). This paper examines legal pluralism across state courts and non-state courts in Bangladesh. It argues that the digitization process of law and legal records is not neutral; rather, it is closely tied to preexisting social biases such as being generated in elite settings and centered solely on the modern rule of law, which exclude and/or distort socio-legal realities and standpoints of women in rural Bangladesh. The paper will be published in a future issue of the Asian Journal of Law and Society after revisions, the author will also receive a book award of up to $300 Cambridge University Press e-books.
