In this presentation, we will briefly profile select developments related to these major themes and speculate on their potential evolution and impact on research and scholarship in the coming decade(s).
Prof. Mc Kiernan has compiled a survey for potential attendees to gauge which of the above topics are of most interest to them. All responses will be treated confidentially and will be used only to focus the topics covered in Prof. Mc Kiernan's presentation.
