Covid and Travel Conditions:

With a clear eye on changing travel and meeting conditions,

we'll proceed with plans for an in-person meeting this summer.

  • At this point there are three options for remote participation.

1) A voluntary paper exchange prior to the conference.

o Indicate interest on the Registration Form

2) Livestream of keynote addresses

3) Archive of recordings posted after the event

  • It is undetermined at this time whether there is sufficient interest and capability to allow real-time remote presentation of papers.

o To be determined by interest, IT capability, and travel

conditions.

o There will be an option on the Registration Form to

indicate your interest in this possibility.

Conference Activities:

  • The event will be built to suit those who are able to attend.

  • The original proposal envisioned three kinds of activity:

1) Section workshops for authors to present and receive

feedback on drafts of chapters.

2) A series of plenary, keynote addresses

3) Workshops/Roundtables to discuss:

^ Overarching themes

^ Methodological issues

^ Comparisons between historical sections

^ Challenges of interdisciplinary collaboration

^ Possible conclusions

Food and Meals:

  • The NEH doesn’t allow its funds to be spent on meals, drinks, or receptions, but I am still working to find alternative support for conviviality. I’m always open to suggestions.

  • Tentatively, we'll cater in lunch and go out for dinner.

Entertainment and Tourism:

  • Sioux Falls is on the far eastern side of South Dakota, about 375 miles away from Mount Rushmore. (Think of the movie Fargo, not Deadwood or Dances with Wolves).

  • The metro population is about 250,000, so there are restaurants or bars for a variety of tastes and diets.
