The latest Jack Rabbit Speaks, the official email newsletter for Burning Man, has the following announcement:
“GET BRAINY WITH BURNING MAN: A MIXER FOR ACADEMICS FRI 9/3 2:30-5:00 PM
Have you published an article about Burning Man? Written a book on BRC? Do you teach at a university or are you enrolled in an advanced degree/phD program? Do you have a subscription to academic libraries?
In short…are you a Burning Nerd? We want to meet you! Join us for a small cocktail meet and greet in BRC. Friday, 2:30-5 PM (location TBA). Meet members of the Burning Man organizing staff and mingle with other academics studying Burning Man from intellectual angles!
Please RSVP to academics [at] burningman [dot] com for your official invitation with location details and other info as it develops.
Can’t make it, but want to make sure you and your work are on our radar? We’d love to hear from you: academics [at] burningman [dot] com.”
I will be there, and I look forward to catching up with old colleagues and meeting new ones!
