OIEAHC–SEA Conference

Chicago, June 18–21, 2015

We hope you join us for the 2015 OIEAHC-SEA conference this June 18–21 on Chicago’s beautiful Gold Coast. Registration will open early April via this website.

The conference opens at noon on Thursday, June 18, with a working lunch for graduate students, an afternoon of workshops and panels, and an early evening reception at the Newberry Library.

On Friday and Saturday, panels begin at 8:00 in the morning and continue throughout the day, with long breaks for lunch each day at 11:30 so that conference attendees can enjoy the many local restaurants and nearby lakefront vistas. Optional activities are available both evenings.

The conference concludes with a half-day of panels on Sunday.

Meeting space

The conference will take place primarily at Loyola University Chicago’s School of Law at 25 East Pearson Street, in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast. The CTA Red Line stops nearby.

Additional events will take place at the Newberry Library (60 West Walton Street) and the Northwestern University School of Law (375 East Chicago Avenue). Both are within an easy walk of the LUC location.
