Symposium preparations are in full swing over here! The symposium is free and open to the public, and we have secured a limited block of rooms at a reduced rate at the Courtyard Marriott Charlottesville for any people a bit farther afield who wanted to join in. This weekend will be a busy one in Charlottesville, so we have reserved a block of rooms for which you would pay the favorable rate of $155 a night. The hotel is at 120 W. Main Street (walking distance from the University), and the phone number for inquiries is 434-977-1700. Interested participants will need to make a reservation by February 19; to do so, call the hotel and mention the code “moving people.” Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
