We are very disappointed to report that the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to cancel the in-person 2020 LSA Annual Meeting. This decision did not come lightly, but the LSA Board decided that cancellation is the only reasonable way to ensure that the event does not contribute to the spread of the virus. Sanctions on large gatherings in Denver would also have made the event impossible. The health and well-being of our attendees, members, staff, and citizens of Denver and beyond is of utmost importance to our association.
The good news is that the Program Committee Co-Chairs and the Executive Office are in the process of planning a virtual meeting. We are working to ensure that the meeting resembles the vibrant intellectual program that the Committee has worked hard to assemble for us, and we want you to be a part of it!

2020 Annual Meeting Theme: Rule and Resistance
"Rule may be singular as well as plural. In a moment when we see the rise of authoritarian forms of governance, how are rules asserted as a form of resistance? Resistance is often envisioned as the deliberate breaking of rules, such as through civil disobedience or other forms of rebellion. But resistance can sometimes take the form of exact adherence to rules, such as the industrial strategy of work-to-rule, where workers do no more than the minimum required under their contract. In other situations, instituting rules can itself be an act of resistance against forms of lawless tyranny, or resistance might manifest through attempts to change particular rules and promote different rules. Resistance, too, is not without its rules: resistance movements have often developed their own internal rules to guide and co-ordinate the pursuit of their objectives."
