Note from the organizers: We are very excited about the upcoming program our program committee has developed, and wanted to make sure a working link to the conference schedule reached your inbox. So please, take a moment to look at the terrific panels and other events on tap this year at the 2021 ASLH annual conference. Additionally, we know the course of the COVID-19 pandemic can change rapidly. New Orleans policies are detailed here. The Society is committed to updating the 2021 ASLH annual conference webpage as such information comes to us. We invite you to check back often for additional updates.
