LEFT FORUM 2013 – NEW DATE!

Pace University

June 7 – 9th 2013

New York City

Left Forum has a new date: After almost a decade of spring conferences and growth, Left Forum is moving from spring to early summer, June 7th – 9th. The location remains the same, PaceUniversity, next to City Hall Park, New York City.

Why the date changed: Coming each year during Spring Break weekend, this year’s break fell on Easter. The challenges of organizing the conference on Easter Sunday plus the opportunity to accommodate the growth of this unique global convergence helped inspire the move.

Highlights of the move: The new date will enable panels and events to be organized through the spring semester cycle making it easier on panelists and attendees alike. This will make for a richer intellectual and activist conference experience.

What to expect: Please check back at leftforum.org, for updates on the conference theme, plenary speaker announcements, panel and workshop descriptions, panel proposals, early registration and more.

 

The board, staff and volunteers of Left Forum

Please forward far and wide!
