This year, we will meet in-person at the University of California-Berkeley in historic Berkeley, California.
Registration, panels, and plenaries will occur in the iconic International House: an historic “experiment” built in Spanish “Moorish” style in 1930. The building has a rich history: it advanced agendas for gender, racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity.
