2020 Conference Postponed

New conference dates: June 3-5, 2021 at UVA. Please read the updated announcement below for more details.

Dear Space Betweeners,

Given the rapid progression of COVID-19 nationally and internationally and the travel and work complications that have arisen for many, the Space Between conference committee has decided that we are going to postpone our annual conference scheduled for June 2020 to June 2021. We have not come to this decision lightly, knowing that many of you had already planned on the trip to UVa. But given the travel restrictions, loss of institutional funds for travel, and UVa’s own policies regarding COVID-19, we think this is the best decision.

New conference dates: Carmenita has gracefully offered to host the Space Between conference on race next June in place of this year’s conference. The conference will be held from June 3-5, 2021. If you had a paper accepted to this year’s conference you will automatically be accepted next year. For those of you who did not submit abstracts for 2020 but would like to submit abstracts for 2021, a CFP will once again go out in the fall.

Conference Registration and Refunds: If you have already paid 2020 conference fees, these will automatically roll over to the 2021 conference. If you paid conference fees but cannot attend in 2021, refunds are possible. If you would like a refund, please email our Treasurer, Marie Gasper-Hulvat: MGASPER6@kent.edu

We are very grateful for your support of the Space Between and we hope to see you all in June 2021. Until then, please stay safe and healthy and let Melissa Dinsman (mdinsman@york.cuny.edu) or Erika Doss (edoss@nd.edu) know if you have any questions.

Wishing you all the best,

Melissa Dinsman, Co-President of The Space Between Society
