Call for Session Moderators/Chairs

Want to chair a session at the 2022 PSA? We are looking for volunteers to chair symposia and contributed paper sessions. This is a great way to participate on the main program and a valuable contribution to the quality of the conference. Moderating a session involves keeping speakers and Q&A to their allotted time, and ensuring a respectful discussion. 

We will first assign those who are not already on the main program (only contributed papers and symposia count for this, not Cognate Society sessions or the Poster Forum) as a speaker, so as many scholars as are interested can join the conference. After that, anyone who is already on the main program may be assigned to chair. 

Please distribute this to colleagues and students you think might be interested. Moderators must have completed all the coursework in their Ph.D. program (be ABD). MA students are not eligible to chair. 

Please indicate your willingness and availability here (, and thanks for your help in making the Pittsburgh 2022 PSA great.
