Countdown to the 108th Annual Convention: Honoring Place

November 11, 2022

In accordance with this year’s theme of “Honoring PLACE: People, Liberation, Advocacy, Community, and Environment,” together we will explore the history and centrality of place. We have an outstanding program of panels, papers, and special sessions at this convention. We hope that you will take the time to explore these diverse and significant programs and fully embrace this opportunity to garner new insights and consider all aspects of PLACE. Attendees are encouraged to peruse the online program for sessions that make up the Emphasizing Series, sessions that explore each individual piece of PLACE. For those who are unable to attend in person, please plan to join us as a virtual attendee which includes nine live-streamed sessions.
