Response to “Critical Intersections/Dangerous Issues” has been 
remarkably strong and varied. As the preliminary program demonstrates, 
a wide range of scholars has seized this opportunity to reach across 
boundaries and take inspired intellectual risks. The potential for 
generating new knowledge at the intersections mapped by our 2006 
program is truly exciting.

The 105th Annual Meeting will supply provocative content in an untested 
package. A total of 724 paper sessions, poster sessions and special 
events will convene in a venue most of us—including me—have never seen.

I anticipate a productive match between our theme and the conference 
site; the convention center layout will allow us to break free of 
familiar routines. There will be a lounge area for all members and an 
additional lounge just for students. Old friends and new colleagues can 
meet at the coffee stations or browse information tables for flyers and 

Search the preliminary program and abstracts to see the full offering 
of sessions and special events ….
