Penn People at HSS/SHOT

For those who are attending the HSS/SHOT co-located meeting in Minneapolis (Nov. 3-6), below is a list of current and former Penn people on the program (apologies if I left anyone off!) I'm not quite sure why Friday is so overloaded with people while Saturday depends on a couple of our friends from the history department to keep from being almost completely empty of Penn presentations, but there you have it. (At least that will make it easier for most of us to enjoy the party on Friday night!) Here's the list:

NOTE: To print this list, cut and paste the text into a word-processing document...it should fit nicely on a single page, I think.

CORRECTION: Dominique's session was originally listed in the HSS newsletter for Friday morning, but it has been MOVED to Saturday morning, according to the HSS website (and Dominique herself!) I've corrected the listing below to reflect this.

SECOND CORRECTION: Jeff Tang has now been added to a Sunday morning session. For some reason, he wasn't listed in the program appearing in the SHOT newsletter, which I used to compile this list. I've added him below.
