In September 2010, San Francisco State University will host a conference exploring the question and place of rights in American history, politics, and society. The conference will meet on the campus of San Francisco State University on September 16 and 17, 2010.
Americans have fought over questions of individual and collective rights since the nationís founding. Our goal is to bring together a wide variety of people from a range of academic, activist, legal, and community spaces to examine the place of rights within the broader context of American society.
Registration for the conference is free, but we encourage you to register so we can prepare a name tag for you.
We invite everyone attending the conference to our two luncheons. Unfortunately, our budget does not allow a free lunch. To attend just one lunch, the cost is $30. The cost for both lunches is $50. We only have 34 seats available for lunch, so if you are interested in joining us for lunch, you should register as soon as possible.
The conference hotel is The Chancellor, located at 433 Powell Street on Union Square. From the airport, you can take BART to the Powell St. Station and then walk a short distance up Powell St. to the hotel. MUNI connections will take you to SFSU for the conference.
Conference participants receive a discounted rate of $125 for reservations made before June 30, 2010. After that date, the price increases to $145. No discounts apply after August 16.
Call 1-800-428-4748 and request the SFSU Department of History group rate.
