Hi all:

Thanks to everyone for making ISAN 2022 a success! As I mentioned during the last session of this year’s symposium, more than 400 people registered for the 2022 symposium. We’re now preparing for ISAN 2023 and need your help.

If you have a few minutes, please CLICK HERE to complete a short survey about this year’s symposium and next year’s symposium. All responses will remain confidential. We use the survey responses to prepare for next year’s symposium (January 3-5, 2023). 

As you’ll notice on the survey, we hope to have both an online AND an in-person component to ISAN 2023. However, in order to pursue the possibility of an in-person symposium, we need to assess how many people might attend. Hotels typically require us to commit to a minimum number of guests/rooms and food purchases, and we need to determine if the in-person gathering will be financially viable for the organization. 

Finally, we will have the International Association of Autoethnography and Narrative (IAANI) business meeting on Monday, February 28, 2022 at 4pm (Eastern Standard Time). At this meeting, we will discuss the feedback from the survey and other aspects of ISAN 2023. CLICK HERE for the Zoom link to join the meeting (Meeting ID: 955 2752 2981; Passcode: IAANI).

Anyone is welcome to attend the business meeting, so feel free to share this information. If you are not able to attend the meeting, please make sure to complete the survey. We will also record the business meeting and post the recording here. (Below is the recording of last year’s business meeting.)

Best wishes for safety and health!
