There are now several presentations in the series, with another tomorrow night, then several more two weeks from now. Though all have at least touched on the topic, tomorrow (Friday) night's in particular will focus on the damage done by pretendians in Academia.

Eight sessions, which concluded today. There were a number of excellent presentations. The panelists were largely from the US and Canada, though today was an international panel which covered Mexican, Australian, and Sámi Indigenous issues. All were recorded, and plans are to post most of the other videos at this url. In addition to the recorded panels, publications and further work will be coming out of this important conference.
