I could fit you in our panel "those persistent boundaries" which is  
today at 1:50. that is, if Richard and/or Mia approve.

We have only two presentations, but, frankly, since both Radhika and  
I knew that, we've taken advantage of the extra time to make our  
presentations a bit longer. If you fit the topic (see the description  
on the program alphabetized under "t", you could still give a 15  
minute presentation.

For me to know this is okay by 1:30, please, Richard and/or Mia,  
shoot me an email or sms: 773 494-1837--Efrat, you too. Then, if it's  
set, Efrat, you probably want to announce it on this list as well as  
on facebook, etc.

best, jillana enteen
