- Traditional panel presentations by four panelists (including a discussant).
- Workshops devoted to intensive discussions of papers presented. Papers (restricted to three) will be posted online (accessible with a password to registered conference participants). Commentators will discuss the paper, and the authors will respond briefly, after which discussion will be widened to include the audience.
- Roundtable discussions on a topic of broad interest, with a number of participants and a moderator.
- Panels focused on discussing a recent significant publication or film from a range of disciplinary perspectives.
