This workshop will offer a mix of expert panels and registrant-organized small group sessions and is advised by a transdisciplinary board of nationally recognized academics, professionals, and practitioners. We will offer some registration, travel, and lodging support to promote inclusion of underrepresented minority, junior, and/or regional and community college scholars. We will also create an open Slack workspace for the purpose of creating transparent and open opportunities for creating sessions and forging community.

Here is the public abstract of the NSF award.

Please watch this space for updates, including:

  • Registration information
  • Hotel blocks
  • A Slack workspace
  • Schedule and opportunities to contribute sessions
