Working Session: ASAO Histories
Thursday, February 1, 9:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Denechaud
This second working session will continue to focus on documenting the histories of various aspects of ASAO since its beginnings nearly half a century ago. Participants are writing papers from a personal or an institutional perspective, pulling together and organizing data, serving as resources for others, or a combination of these tasks. Draft papers to be discussed at the 2018 meeting are listed below (* = in absentia). New topics are welcome! For instance, we hope one or more people will contribute essays about the evolution of the ASAO Newsletter. We will also discuss audiences and venues for sharing these histories.
Other session participants serving as resource people include Zakea Boeger, Rick Feinberg, Bob
Franco, Mike Lieber, and (in absentia this time) Ivan Brady, Kathy Creely, Dan Jorgensen, Susanne
Kuehling, Mac Marshall, Kirsten McGavin, Naomi McPherson, Judith Schachter, and Bob and Myrna Tonkinson. If you’d like to participate, please contact the session organizers.
