Organized by: Myra Seaman
We are raising funds for three intimately related purposes:
1. $1,000 for the James Paxson Memorial Travel Grant, to be awarded for travel to the 2015 Kalamazoo Medieval Congress. Two grants of $500 each will be awarded to presenters who lack institutional support for travel.
2. $1,000 for the Radical Conviviality Fund, the money used to ensure that all BABEL social gatherings are open to all regardless of financial means.
3. Most importantly, $8,000 to aid precariat presenters to travel to BABEL Biennale at Univ. of Toronto in Oct. 2015. This fund will be used to cover travel and hotel for those who do not have the institutional suppport to cover their own travel.
Consider the tangible, immediate and material ways you can help graduate students, NTT faculty, artists and others who do not have access to adequate professional development resources -- as well as to conference enjoyment. Please contribute generously. We want as many people as possible to have access to BABEL.
AND: Many BABEL members have donated prizes. If you contribute, you are eligible. Details will be posted!
