Please know that both the central HASTAC leadership and the local organizing team are closely monitoring world events and the recommendations of the WHO and CDC.

Here at UT Dallas, on March 12 we were told that our Spring recess would be extended by one week and that we would move to remote instruction for the remainder of the semester when we return to classes on March 30.

Like many of our colleagues across the world, we are currently focused on how to make this the best possible experience for our students. As soon as we get everyone settled into their new teaching formats, the local HASTAC group will be meeting to formalize our strategy for conference planning in this time of uncertainty.

We thank you for your patience. In the meantime, we are still hoping to have an excellent gathering in Dallas, full of scholars and artists focused on hindsight, foresight, and insight with intention and care. The submissions website remains open until March 21 and we will initiate the review process shortly thereafter.
