Workshop temporarily suspended for the Spring Quarter

In light of the University of Chicago’s announced changes for the Spring Quarter with regards to the evolving health concerns around COVID-19, we have decided to suspend the Workshop for the time being. If the situation evolves, we might be able to hold some sessions in late May.
We regret the situation we have been put in and we look forward to resuming our lively discussions soon.
