Last year, because of the pandemic, we held the conference virtually. Holding the conference virtually allowed people from all over, with varying circumstances, to be able to attend. We hope to channel the same welcoming energy by holding the 34th conference both virtually and in person. For those of you who plan on attending the conference in person, we will be hosting the conference at the Hospitality Hall on the University of Nevada Las Vegas campus. This newly built building offers spectacular views of the Las Vegas strip while providing a modern space for us to share popular culture. You can see a picture below. We look forward to seeing all of you either virtually or in person soon.
