Featured Panels

The program committee has assembled a list of featured panels and roundtables that crystallize some of the topics and concerns that emerged with particular vibrancy as ASAP/9 came together. Some of these panels speak with great clarity on pressing aspects of the global political moment; others assess the history of the present and speculate on its potential legacies; others invite us to engage the present from new methodological and theoretical perspectives. The program committee hopes that these panels will generate lively conversations at this year’s conference.
