Carlos David Londoño organized a special session called Conversations in the Lobby. This event was planned in fond memory of Steven Rubenstein’s unfailing presence in hotel lobbies at AAA and SALSA meetings, where he was a nexus for networking within our anthropological tribe, and generous in sharing copious avuncular advice with colleagues, peers, and students. In the spirit of continuing his legacy of professional insight and connectivity, speakers were invited to provide counsel on matters of professional relations, and allow ample time for discussion.
