The organizers understand that the political climate is shifting rapidly and often.There is talk among many academics of boycotting conferences to protest the travel bans inflicted by the current administration. If you choose to boycott this conference, we stand in solidarity with you. We do, though, hope you will join us.
If you find yourself affected by these travel restrictions, we encourage you to still submit your work. We will find a way to accommodate a remote presentation. We cannot support any act that tries to silence scholarship.
If you have questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact us.
