Each year, the conference has been a delightful combination of styles of presentation. Scholars will learn a lot, and non-scholars won¹t feel like they¹re at an academic conference. Plus, we always have perfect weather. We begin Friday 6 PM with a cocktail party especially for conference participants, and finish Sunday after lunch.
