Business Meeting and Reception
We will be holding our meeting and reception on Friday, November 18 from 7:45 – 9:30 pm (location TBA). The meeting will include presentations of the Boyer, Stirling and Condon Prizes and will include plenty of opportunities to meet and talk with friends and colleagues. Please join us!

Student-Faculty Workshops
As in previous years, the SPA will be sponsoring a series of workshops in which small groups of students convene with faculty member around professional, theoretical, and methodological themes. These workshops offer an opportunity for students to engage in in-depth discussions within a mentoring context related to the proposed workshop theme, and work through specific research and writing problems with a leading scholar in the field.

Each workshop can accommodate three students, on a first come, first serve basis, provided the student’s questions are closely related to the workshop theme and that they are current members of the SPA. These sessions will take place in a cafe in or near the conference hotel.
