CANCELED: NULab Spring Conference 2020

March 27, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

With our apologies, we have canceled the NULab spring conference, scheduled for March 27. We’re very disappointed about this, and sorry for the inconvenience it might cause, but, given the status of COVID-19 responses, it is becoming clear that cancellation of non-essential large public gatherings is rapidly emerging as best practice.

We’re now in discussions with the NULab community concerning the possibility of a smaller virtual “unconference” event and are also looking into publishing some of the conference materials on the NULab website. We’ll make sure to send around updates on those possibilities as soon as we have more information. 

Please join us on Friday, March 27th at 90 Snell Library, Northeastern University, for the fourth annual NULab Spring Conference, “Technologies of Democracy,” with talks by Northeastern faculty and graduate students, and a keynote address by Professor Patricia J. Williams.

Space is limited and registration is required; please RSVP here. This is a free event and breakfast & lunch will be provided.

This conference will feature a keynote address by Patricia J. Williams, University Distinguished Professor of Law and Humanities at Northeastern University, a pioneer of both the law and literature and critical race theory movements in American legal theory. We will also have three sessions of presentations by Northeastern faculty and graduate students whose research relates to the technologies of democracy:

Nicole Aljoe: English; Director of Africana Studies Program

Nicholas Beauchamp: Political Science
