The lecture will be held in Hamilton 569 at 5:30.
  • New Research Forum (8 November)
On Friday morning, the conference hosts a New Research Forum to highlight new research and work in progress. Modeled on “flash sessions,” the presenters explain their projects in five minutes as a prelude to in-depth small group discussions.

Support for Graduate Students

In order to encourage and support rising scholars, graduate student members of the Society are eligible to receive support from the Thomas Keefe memorial fund to cover the costs of registration. In addition, thanks to generous support from Society members, a number of bursaries, in the form of three nights’ paid-for accommodation in the conference hotel, are available.
