Conference plan

After our discussions this week about the conference program, I created a google doc to begin to draft it. IT IS BECOMING A REAL THING. And it will get more real.

So, sometime before Tuesday, May 7, you should take a look at it and:

  • List your name the way you want it to appear.
  • List the title of your paper the way you want it to appear.
  • Review the sequence and spacing of events in the day. Does this order of things look about right, and do you think we should reorganize the panels or adjust the time in any way?
  • Revise the titles for the panels as necessary, especially yours. What should we call it?

And send me an email to let me know if you have another preference about which faculty member should moderate your panel. All of these faculty members have agreed to moderate– they were honored to be asked!– and they have some flexibility in their schedule, so we could move them around if you have thoughts about this.

Also, ponder this question, and post your thoughts below: How should we loosen up together and set the tone for the day at the start?

I have some ideas, and I think you do, too.

I also wonder if maybe we should have a *subcommittee* to make this plan concrete, because democracy is messy, and I think some of you will enjoy a little surprise at the start of the day. In the comments below, also indicate whether you would like to delegate this last question to a subcommittee, and whether you’d like to be on it.
