Registration

Dear Colleagues,

It is now cliché to say that these are uncertain times for the American political and cultural landscape.  We are simply too far from July to have any sense of the consequences of the recent executive order-travel ban, the Court’s suspension of it, or any subsequent developments, for our IIEMCA meeting in Ohio. We thank everyone in advance for your patience. We will continue to stay apprised of relevant developments and update our information as warranted. 

For now, we express our solidarity with those who stand in harm’s way and affirm that scholarship, like humanity, has no borders. Contact us with questions or concerns at iiemca@otterbein.edu . We are committed to ensuring the fullest possible participation for all this July.
