The Practice of Magic!

Please join us April 2, 2022, in Winter Park, Florida for a day of papers, panels, and presentations (can we expect prestidigitation?).

We’re so excited to see everyone and continue our tradition of fine conversation, scholarship, and hospitality.  Because we want to see each and every one of our friends year after year, you can attend completely remotely or in person! Our venue leaves the choice of mask-wearing to the discretion of the individual. Remote attenders are more than welcome to be presenters, too!
