1) Host an admitted student
2) Time to Register for the Conference! Also, We need Spanish translators!
Check out harvardlambda.org/ to see the panels and breakout sessions, and most importantly, to register for the conference. We have a tight budget this year, and limited space for all of the meals.
Also, we are desperately seeking some Spanish speakers who would be willing to help with some translation throughout the conference. Basically the task is to be part of a team of people switching off to follow around a pair of people – one of the lawyers arguing the marriage case in Argentina and the other a trans, indigenous rights activist from Argentina. Should be really interesting!
