Anyone can see our schedule and showcase

As usual, the AFS Annual Meeting offers four jam-packed days, full of lectures, events, sessions, and other exciting programming in Tulsa. See the menu above to browse the current program.

But the program is never static! Some changes to the schedule will inevitably arise, even during the conference.

The program on this Hub will reflect all updates as we process them, but you should also check the addendum for an at-a-glance round-up of last-minute changes that may affect your plans.

Virtual Access for Some Meeting Events

Registered attendees who can’t attend in person may watch some events live, attend 4-5 hybrid panels during concurrent sessions, and access recordings of these live-streamed and hybrid sessions after the meeting.

Re-Centering the Periphery

The theme of the meeting, Re-Centering the Periphery, calls us to focus on the intersections of what is marginalized and centralized both in our field and in the larger public debates about national identities in 2022.
