The deadline to submit a proposal is tomorrow!

The deadline to submit your proposal for #MAPACA2021 is tomorrow, Thursday, July 15. We want to see YOU at this year’s conference! Our 2021 conference will be completely online, so you won’t have to worry about the hassle of travel. Everyone in the world is invited!

Please let your friends and colleagues know that MAPACA accepts proposals from scholars, both undergraduate and graduate students, and from community members.

Because we know that many people’s conference budgets have been cut, we have also reduced our registration fees this year to our lowest possible rates.

Thinking of submitting your proposal from 2020?

You are certainly welcome to submit the same proposal that you submitted for last year’s canceled conference. It was a great idea then and it’s a great idea now! However, you must submit it again for this year’s conference. We will not automatically roll over last year’s proposals.
