Reimagining the conference as a virtual event has the added bonus of having more involvement from members! We are seeking members who would like to suggest and (1) lead morning events during the 9:30am to 10:45am EDT session, (2) evening events, starting at 8:30pm EDT, or (3) casual get-togethers in our virtual lounges in the morning, evening, or in limited cases, during the day. We know not everyone will be awake at this hour, but we want to make use of the virtual time we have together. These are casual, low-risk activities that will be added to the official schedule once approved. They do not need to be formal presentations but still must adhere to the Conference Code of Conduct. Events geared towards a particular group will still be open to all.
Some ideas are:
-Conversation around a topic: particular texts, current events, games, films, etc. (unlike roundtables, these are more casual)
-Career preparation and networking
-Regional based networking
-Group viewing of a short film/episode
If you have an idea of something you'd like to lead, please email Robin Hershkowitz at email@example.com by May 15 with a short description and your preferred day of the conference. All scheduled sessions are at the discretion of PCA.
