SFSU Rights Conference Postponed

We have, via H-Law, this announcement concerning the postponement of a conference previously noted here, because of the illness of its organizer, Christopher Waldrep:
San Francisco State University, which for years has hosted the SFSU Rights Conference originated and planned by H-Law's own Chris Waldrep, has had to take the difficult decision to postpone the 2012 Conference previously announced.  The Conference's planning committee has reluctantly decided that a postponement is in the best interests of the Conference and those who take part in it, and is also a sign of respect for the pivotal role that Chris Waldrep has played in each of these conferences since the program began.  The committee expresses the earnest hope that Chris will be well enough in 2013 to attend that year's conference, which will address the theme of "Emancipation" (previously selected for the 2012 conference), whether or not he is able to assist in its planning and organization.  Like all other friends and admirers of Chris Waldrep, the members of the planning committee extend their best wishes to him and his family for a speedy and full recovery.
