Occupyirtheory ISA2012 Lineup, & Poster! [UPDATED]

#occupyirtheory at #ISA2012

Just a reminder! Don’t forget to join us for the #occupyirtheory session at ISA 2012 in San Diego, Tuesday April 3 (Room 204 Hilton Bayfront Hotel). The event will feature a brief roundtable-style discussion followed by a ‘General Assembly’-style open forum to talk about what the IR and IPE communities want from Occupy Wall Street, and what Occupy can expect from us. Confirmed speakers at the roundtable event at this time include: Pablo K, Robbie Shilliam, Luke Ashworth, and Nicholas Kiersey. Wanda Vrasti will facilitate the GA and introduce the procedural format for those as yet unfamiliar with how it all works. Really looking forward to seeing you there!

Also, a very special thanks to Pablo K for putting together this absolutely brilliant poster for the event!

[Update: this event, and this blog, actually got a mention in the New York Times! See here].
