NAASR 2020 Annual Meeting Preliminary Program

Here at NAASR, we are proceeding (for now) under the perhaps naive assumption that we will still be able to meet in Boston later this year for our annual meeting. To that end, we are happy to announce and to share our preliminary program. This year we are breaking with the format we used for the last several years and are instead hosting three roundtables explicitly focusing on applied method and theory. We continue to monitor the situation and will follow the AAR and SBL’s lead. We hope to see everyone in November. Until then, stay safe.
