The EERA conference has been held each spring and brings together the leading scholars from the eastern United States. The refereed conference typically hosts over 300 scholars, meaning that the conference is small enough to network and connect with colleagues, but is large enough to offer a wide range of ideas, research methods, and topics.
The conference will be held at the Omni Richmond Hotel. Overlooking the James River, this upscale hotel is 9 minutes' walk from the Virginia State Capitol and 2.8 miles from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Elegant rooms offer river or city views, plus HDTVs, minibars and work desks. Suites add separate parlors with pull-out sofas; some have wet bars, minifridges and/or dining tables. Upgraded quarters have access a lounge providing complimentary breakfast, Wi-Fi and snacks.
There's an atrium restaurant offering Tuscan cuisine, as well as a lounge, an Italian market and a Starbucks café. Additional amenities include an indoor pool, a sundeck and a gym, plus a business center and event space.
