Ways of Speaking - Going Virtual

As a Research Network, we are seeking your continued participation to keep a dialogue alive—speculative, hopeful, and urgent. We want to offer a sense of normalcy, hope, and a way to connect in these testing times. Our working principle is that research and professional work must continue. In this light, we have decided to continue as a virtual-only event. We are trying to offer members the best experience with the tools we have in the CGScholar Design Principles & Practices Community page combined with other available digital communication tools. Please keep in mind this is a highly experimental moment. We hope you will watch, comment, and participate.
