Thank you so much to everyone who submitted papers, panel discussions, roundtables, short courses, preconferences, social justice films, and other contributions via NCA Convention Central over the past weeks—your creative energies will drive our convention in November. And thank you as well to all the colleagues who are acting as reviewers; your careful consideration of our submissions furthers NCA's commitment to intellectual rigor, pedagogical excellence, and civic engagement.

Please remember that NCA is proud to host our first-ever Social Justice Exchange (SJE), a three-hour event wherein scholars and activists come together to share best practices. We hope to advance the common good by enabling scholars and teachers to hear from grassroots practitioners and community leaders; at the same time, we hope our invited guests' civic engagements will benefit from our scholarship. If you would like to participate in the SJE, or to recommend local practitioners to invite, please contact Bryan Crable, Villanova University, SJE planner.
