SFI ACtioN Roundtable

This meeting is being organized as a small discussion. To facilitate a rigorous inquiry into the ideas highlighted in the abstract, we have asked participating scholars to prepare 20-minute statements on aspects of theory they believe are relevant to the conversation. We have asked practitioner discussants to provide 5 to 10-minute statements, aimed at bringing real world examples into the conversation. Faculty statements will be given in order listed below, but discussants will be free to make their statements whenever they feel it would be most impactful.

The day’s discussion will explore four primary pastures, listed below in order. As with other ACtioN meetings, we will spend half our time hearing statements from scholars and practitioner discussants, the other half will be spent in open discussion. Breakfast will be available during registration at 8:30 am, the meeting will begin at 9:00 am and will adjourn at 5:00 pm. We will take a lunch break around noon, and coffee breaks as needed.
