Abstract

Q: How do I attend or present in sessions?

Presentations will be live on Zoom. Note that the schedule is presented in the host location time zone, US Eastern.

On the day prior to the conference, we will distribute Zoom links to each of our color-coded conference “rooms.” PLEASE be mindful about keeping those links private, and not distributing or posting them to others. This will help protect our community from external attacks. As a presenter, please arrive 15 minutes early to your session to check sound, video, slides, etc. A wrangler will be in the room to assist with Zoom, but will not provide any moderation/timekeeping of the panels.

Q. How do I learn about sessions to attend?

The PDF program is here. To view abstracts of papers, use the STARS repository. These are the final versions of the program and should be consulted rather than any older versions.

Q. How will presentations work?

To allow time for 4 presentations and Q&A in a 90 minute session, presentations should be no more than 18 minutes long. We note that keeping to the time limit is part of our feminist praxis, and demonstrates respect for your co-panelists. For sessions with fewer than 4 papers, sticking to this length is still a good idea to keep the session approximately on schedule for those wishing to panel hop. Roundtable discussions should organize their time in a way mutually agreed upon by participants.

Sessions will not be assigned moderators and should choose one member to serve in that role, though there will be a UCF person present in each session for Zoom purposes.

Q. How will the exhibition and artist’s talks work?

To enable both in-person and virtual attendees to hear from the artists and experience their work, every artist is scheduled on the program. Artist talks are scheduled following the same pattern as other presentations, and should be 18 minutes long: this can consist of any combination of performance, screening, reading, or process reflection as appropriate to the work. Sessions will not be assigned moderators and should choose one member to serve in that role, though there will be a UCF person present in each session for Zoom purposes.

Q: Can I attend sessions that are listed as in-person?

Yes, all in-person sessions will simultaneously be broadcast on Zoom. You can join these the same way you would join a fully virtual session, by joining the appropriate color room. We will have wranglers in the room to assist in relaying questions asked in chat to the presenters, but we ask that you be patient with the hybrid form, as it is difficult for presenters to be attentive to both modalities.

Q: I am scheduled as part of an in-person session, but have had to change my plans at the last minute. Can I still present?

Yes, we encourage you to still join your session on Zoom and present: the wrangler will ensure Zoom is running from the podium, so you should be able to screen share as usual. We encourage you to reach out to your fellow panelists as soon as you know your plans have changed so that you can coordinate as a group.

Q: Can I catch up on sessions later if I have conflicts or time zone challenges?

Yes. All sessions will be recorded by default and recordings will be made available open-access in this STARS archive shortly after they conclude. However, presenters may choose to opt out of recording; if some members of the session are willing but others are not, a partial recording may be available.

Q. How do I find social events and make connections?

We highly encourage you to join the CP 22 Discord, where you can connect with both in-person and virtual attendees, and take advantage of the voice channels for live socializing and networking. There are spaces for general discussion and sharing, as well as specific interest channels where you can find connections for virtual social events. You'll find the invite link in your email.
