Our keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Bo Ruberg from Film and Media
Studies at the University of California, Irvine. It will take place on
Thursday, October 21 at 5pm Pacific. Please note that this keynote has a
separate registration on Zoom, which you can register for here:

There will also be a faculty roundtable discussion between Dr. Ayesha Omer
