Information and Pre-Registration
Registration for Atlantic World Arts requires three steps:
- If you have not already done so, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your participation, as well as your name, paper title, academic institution and position (if applicable), and any special equipment needs;
- Pay your conference registration fee online at https://www.nexternal.com/uncg/atlantic-world-arts-collision-fusion-re-vision-p2866.aspx by August 21;
- If you need hotel accommodations, reserve a room by searching online for “Downtown Greensboro Hotels”; hotels closest to UNCG and the city center include the Marriott Downtown (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/gsodt-greensboro-marriott-downtown/), the O. Henry (http://ohenryhotel.com/), the Proximity (http://www.proximityhotel.com/), the Biltmore Greensboro (https://thebiltmoregreensboro.com/), and Haynes Bed and Breakfast (http://www.haynesbedandbreakfast.com/). Reserve soon, because the National Folk Festival is likely to fill much available room space.

--Regular Registration: $120 ($135 after August 21)
--Graduate Students: $85 ($100 after August 21)

UNCG Faculty, Students, and Staff Free Registration. If you are a member of the UNCG community, simply indicate your plan to attend by emailing email@example.com under the subject heading FREE UNCG REGISTRANT, and provide your name as you’d like it on your nametag, along with your contact information.
Conference registration includes keynotes by Fiona Ritchie, Doug Orr, Candace Keller, and Jeff Titon; all plenary and breakout panel sessions; an opening night concert by Canadian Breton-Scottish duo Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIsaac; an exhibit of transatlantic works by modern masters drawn from UNCG’s Weatherspoon Art Museum; refreshments and beverages; and transportation to and from downtown Greensboro’s National Folk Festival, with its seven performance stages, multicultural attractions, and attractive range food trucks and restaurants. Because the National Folk Festival presents such outstanding opportunities for downtown eating near the performance stages, there will be no traditional conference “banquet.”
