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 have planned an engaging virtual conference. Our meeting will take place from Wednesday May 27-Sunday May 31. The conference will kick off on Wednesday with three exciting mini-plenaries along with the awards celebration. On Wednesday– Sunday, we will host over 300 events, including the many paper sessions, salons, roundtables, new books in the field and author meets readers panels. The program is truly shaping up to be an intellectually engaging event.We are excited and hope you are too!

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."
