Hi, Carrol. That information is actually front-and-center on the website 
as it stands. If it's not showing up for you or something, please let me 
know, because we definitely want that information out there! (Maybe when 
our web guru goes through and makes the front page snazzier, the info 
will stand out better. This is not my strength.)

In any case, it's Friday, April 11 - Sunday, April 13 at UMass Amherst.

It's being hosted by our incredible (sorry, shameless plug here) Social 
Thought & Political Economy program -- a 40+-year-old radical 
undergraduate major here at UMass, with extraordinary student leadership 
and opportunities to take lots of small seminars focused on critiquing 
social, political, and economic power structures. Please let the college-bound activists in 
your circles know about us!

Thanks, Carrol and everyone.
