All submissions will be eligible for inclusion in the workshops. These workshops

excellent opportunity to dialogue and engage with highly respected scholars as well
as gather feedback and critiques in a supportive and positive environment. 
The Conference will also host panels of selected submissions of complete papers.
These selected panels are for fully developed questions and follow a more
traditional conference panel structure. 
If you are interested in participating in this event, please submit a proposal
