We are still SO invigorated by all of the talks and academic energy that you brought to the conference this year! We will be adding a few posts over the next week or so with some photos, some announcements, and other kinds of post-conference processing. But for right now, I wanted to put out this opportunity:
Our excellent keynote speaker--Julie Grossman--has offered to share a discount code that will enable you to buy her book at 30% off! If you enjoyed her talk on Ida Lupino, we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. See below for the relevant information.
Book description and discount info: HERE
To order the book online, go to rutgersuniversitypress.org and use discount code "02AAAA16"
We are officially only TWO WEEKS away from NYCEA 2017. A couple of quick reminders:
-Every presenter must also be a NYCEA member. We have had several folks register for the conference but not sign up as a member. Those two items pay for different things (the registration fee paying for the luncheon, the keynote speaker, assorted costs, coffee, etc, and the membership fee paying for the graduate paper prize and the hosting fees for our website). Please sign up for membership as well if you did not do so initially!
-Several folks have still not registered! PLEASE do so as soon as possible so we can have an accurate head count for catering (and finalize the program so that we can get the latter out to you sooner rather than later).
Now, on to some news you can use. Scott, one of our conference organizers, hit the campus at the University of Rochester today and recorded some videos to help you find the locations we will be using for NYCEA. Below, you will first find a ~9 minute video with narration, talking you through how to find the various rooms. After that are a series of un-narrated videos showing individual locations. The conference program will have a QR code link to this blog post, so that you can pull it up on your phone or tablet to help you navigate during the conference.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone! Just two weeks away!
A full, narrated tour of the locations that will be utilized for NYCEA 2017.
This is the lot you should park in on Saturday (all of Friday's events are at the Staybridge Hotel). Parking is free on Saturday, and you can park in any lot, but this one is the closest to the conference venues.
This video shows you how to get from the parking lot to the registration area. The registration area is also where the coffee station will be AND where two of our panel spaces will be.
A video showing how to get from the registration area to G-108A, which will be the location for some of our panels.
A video showing how to get from the registration area to Instructional Suite B, which will be the location for some of our panels.
These two videos show you how to get from Instructional Suite B to the Rettner Atrium, where we will be having our conference luncheon. The first video travels from the Instructional Suite to the main quad, and the second video takes you from the quad to the Atrium. In the narrated version, I incorrectly identified a portrait as one of REGINALD Rettner. In fact, his name is RONALD Rettner. Apologies. :)
Finally, this video shows you how to get from the main quad to the Robbins Library. Robbins will not only be hosting panel sessions, but will also be the site for our keynote speaker.
