Amidst an exciting array of panels, roundtable discussions, and experimental-format sessions at the upcoming biennial conference, there will also be three “Practicum Workshops”. The goal of these workshops is to introduce the attendees to a set of knowledge or a skill that they can incorporate into their research or teaching.
Participants will need to sign up for these before the conference, and there will be a limit of about 20 participants in each workshop. Enrolling in a workshop or running one will be an exception to the conference rules on participation. In other words, participants may still have one major + one minor form of participation in the program, and still sign up for workshops.
Thanks go out to the six scholars who have agreed to organize these workshops. We hope you all find the topics appealing.
The sign ups for these workshops will open after the program is assembled, so stay tuned for more news.
