Now that summer is upon us, the SIETARUSA 2019 Conference Committee and Volunteers have been taking time out of sunny weekends and warm evenings to review the 90+ conference proposals submitted for the SIETARUSA 2019 National Conference: From Adversity to Diversity: The Role of the Interculturalist. taking place October 30-November 2 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. 

We are excited to see so many timely and important proposals emphasizing the importance of the role of interculturalists in bridging differences in our increasingly polarized society.  They show how we can articulate and embrace our similarities and differences to better engage, communicate, and cooperate with one another.   Thanks to those of you who have submitted proposals!  You will be informed in early July of your acceptance to the conference.
