2011 Conference - San Francisco, March 3-5, 2011.



The 2011 San Francisco conference of the Humanities Research and Education Association will center around transformations.

 Th0se transformations happen in four groupings or "streams." The conference seeks a very broad range of contributions, but will be structured in such a way that participants can follow one particular "stream" or may move among "streams" if they so desire.
