Hey, check out the poster for our conference:
Since Richard Fung will be opening our conference with a special preiew screening of his latest video documentary Dal Puri Diaspora, we chose a screen image from his classic Sea in the Blood (2000) for the background–of course, with his permission.
Are you getting excited about this conference? We sure are!
