Funny you should ask!  Some of the Commission’s leaders were just on a Zoom call about a potential conference featuring the Commission’s work. Here are our initial thoughts:

  • Place: Fordham University, Lincoln Center Campus in NYC
  • Date: A Friday in May 2022
  • Purpose: Learn about and try out an array of “deliverables” (e.g., trainings, exercises, repository) that Commission members produced in its first year; exchange ideas; identify additional target areas
  • Audience: Current anthropology students and recent graduates, practitioners from the tri-state area, and teaching faculty/instructors
  • Sessions: Workshops, panels, discussion groups, …
  • Cost: Very affordable
