YRC, 2001

Call For Papers

MEETS JUNE 21-23, 2001,

Until March 2, 2001, we are accepting proposals for general and concurrent sessions. In keeping with the sense of the YRC, please try to show an interplay of theory and practice--not privileging the one to the other. You may submit a proposal for either a whole 90-minute panel (two or more persons) or for a place in such a session. This year the YRC considers
