This post officially inaugurates our freshly updated and mutated Gebser Society website, and announces the much anticipated Call for Papers for this year's conference.
This year we are very excited to bring Gebser to New York City!
The conference dates are 17-18 October 2014. The theme this year is Crisis and Mutation. The deadline for abstracts is 31 July 2014. Note them well.
Full conference information will be available in the Conference Program, which is scheduled for release directly after the Call for Papers draws to a close (31 July 2014). In the meantime, updates will be made available here as they arise.
I wish to personally thank Jeremy Johnson for his instrumental assistance in securing the conference venue—the fabulous and historic Judson Memorial Church—and setting up the new website. Jeremy presented at last year's conference in Los Angeles, and when he's not being generally invaluable to the Gebser Society, he does great work at Evolver Learning Lab and Reality Sandwich.
On a technical note, we wish to assure you that all the material from the old website has been saved. Relevant material will be uploaded over the coming weeks. If you have any specific requests or enquiries, please contact Jeremy directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Much is on the horizon, and we will be writing separately about some of the new features and opportunities that will be afforded us, including our vision for a more creative, interactive, and truly international Jean Gebser Society.
