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 ….

deadline to make hotel reservations is October 27.
We look forward to seeing you in San Jose!

2006 Executive Program Chair
