The Fall 2019 edition of Sectors is scheduled for release in early December, so time-sensitive news items (such as calls for papers, job applications, etc.) should have deadlines in late December or January.

We also encourage junior scholars (i.e., graduate students, recent grads, postdocs, and new faculty) to submit short articles (500-600 words) for Notes from the Field, a series that offers junior scholars an opportunity to share their research with the section community. Notes from the Field articles should provide a description of recent fieldwork. Faculty mentors are welcome to encourage their students to submit. The deadline for all Notes from the Field submissions is October 31, 2019.
