MALCS 2021 Summer Institute, Monday, July 26 – Friday, July 30, 2021
Dear MALCS colleagues, friends, and community,
I hope that this letter finds you well and that you are staying safe and healthy. I am writing to announce the MALCS 2021 Summer Institute.
Recognizing the pandemic’s ongoing effects and impact in our communities, we have decided to host the 2021 Summer Institute in an online format. Programming will begin on Monday, July 26, 2021 and end on Friday, July 30, 2021.
The Executive Committee and Coordinating Committee are working hard to develop a vibrant week of Caucus sponsored pláticas/sessions, as well as an opening session, Tortuga Award Presentation, and a membership meeting where election results will be announced. One of the many highlights of the week is a book session centering recently published works of our MALCS members!
During the upcoming months, please be on the lookout for updates on programming and registration information. Also, if you haven’t done so already, remember to renew your membership at https://malcs.org/membership/ so you don’t miss out!
While we know how much everyone looks forward to coming together to rejuvenate, and share scholarship, art, community, and friendship, we also want to ensure that we do our part to keep our communities safe. Although a virtual platform could never replace our coming together in person, we look forward to meeting virtually, and to show the support and love that defines us as an organization.
Yvette J. Saavedra
