WCSA Conference Update and YSAF and Travel Grant Extensions

As is the case with many academic organizations, WCSA is monitoring the COVID-19 situation.

This year’s conference committee is continuing to organize the conference and acceptances will be going out shortly. For those whose conference proposals have been accepted, you need not register for the conference at this time, but please be assured of your acceptance and placement into a session. We are discussing both the possibility of rescheduling of the conference to a later date or converting the conference to a virtual experience if need be. In the coming weeks, we will make a decision about which of these options appears best, in the case our May conference must be adjusted. We will provide updated information at https://workingclassstudiesassocation.org/wcsa-conference/ when available.

In the meantime, the application deadline for both the YSAF and Travel Grants has been extended to April 1.

Application forms with updated deadlines are available here:
