The forty-eighth meeting of the Society will take place at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY, on April 6 and 7, 2019. Robert Hasegawa (McGill University) will deliver the keynote address, and Megan Kaes Long (Oberlin College and Conservatory) will lead the graduate student workshop. The call for papers can be found here.
David Mosher (Visiting Assistant Professor, College of Saint Rose) will handle local arrangements. The college is reached easily by car, as the capital city is located at the junction of I-87 and I-90; via Albany International Airport, which includes flights on major airlines including Southwest; or on multiple Amtrak trains per day from New York City and beyond.
A block of rooms at TRU by Hilton/Homewood Suites by Hilton is available for attendees. The two hotels are adjoined and located at the same address (1651 Western Avenue, Albany, New York, 12203). You may use the following links below to get the conference rates.
Attendees may freely park in campus lots during the conference from April 5–7. Parking lots that will be the most convenient for everyone are lots P5, P6, and P7 (open from 7am–11pm) adjacent to the Massry Center for the Arts. These lots are found by taking the entrance at 1000 Madison Ave. (between Main St. and Partridge St.). This entrance proceeds to a T-intersection. Turning either direction at this intersection will bring you to one of these lots.
