WHEATS is almost upon us. Since the format of the workshop is a little unconventional, please keep the following in mind:
We will be discussing the work of eight graduate students over the course of eight 50-minute sessions. At the beginning of each session, a senior scholar discussant will spend 10-15 minutes introducing, framing, and commenting on the paper. The next 15 minutes will be devoted to questions from the audience without direct response from the author. Finally, the author will have approximately 20 minutes to reply and discuss all comments with the rest of the room. This is a nontraditional format that recent WHEATS meetings have tried out with positive results, and we would like to continue the experiment.
See you soon.
