MOC Connecting

MOC Connecting: Sharing Expertise on Micro and Macro Hot Topics


MOC Connecting is a virtual event that encourages interaction and discussion between scholars with similar interests.

During this fun and interactive session, participants will rotate to two different tables to discuss topics of interest (see the list of topics below). We have an amazing group of scholars at each table that will facilitate discussion on each topic. We would love to connect with you!
We will hold the event online (session #507) from 3PM to 4:30PM PST, on Saturday, 6 August.
Join us to connect with other people from our field!
