In addition, we would like to invite you all to join us for our annual spring planning meeting on Friday, April 4 from 12-1:15 p.m. in Harper Memorial West, #284. Lunch from Snail Thai Cuisine will be provided. At this meeting, we will discuss the running of the workshop next year, and we would greatly appreciate your comments and advice. Specifically, we invite you to come with the names of outside scholars and UChicago graduate students and faculty we should consider inviting to present at the workshop. (Graduate students, you are welcome to volunteer yourselves if you are interested in presenting.) We will also discuss the basic logistical details of the workshop (start time, location, student coordinators, etc.).
If you will not be able to attend the meeting, please feel free to share your thoughts with us via e-mail: Rebecca Crisafulli (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Agatha Kim (email@example.com)
