Wharton in Washington 2016 Registration and Hotel Reservations Now Open

With great delight, we are pleased to announce that the conference registration is now open. The registration fee includes a lunch and an evening reception that will follow the keynote address.

Registration fees are as follows:

$210: Professional Scholar

$185: Graduate Students/Postdocs

$160: Undergraduate Students

$20: Day rate for non-presenting participants (does not include lunch or reception)

Please note that all conference participants are expected to be members of the Edith Wharton Society at time of registration. You can become a member at https://edithwhartonsociety.wordpress.com/membership/

We ask that you register for the conference by April 15, 2016. After that date, registration costs will increase by $50.

You can register for the conference using PayPal at  https://whartoninwashington2016.wordpress.com/registration/.

Also at this time, you can make hotel reservations at the Fairfax Embassy Row by using this dedicated link: Edith Wharton Society

You can also call the hotel at (855) 559-8899 or (202) 293-2100. If you call, be sure to mention the conference code, GEW31A, so that you can get our specially negotiated rate of $209 per night. This rate is good for three nights before and after the conference, should you want to stay in Washington a little longer. The sooner you make reservations, the better, in case we need to secure additional rooms.

All conference events will be held at the Fairfax except for the lunch and keynote reception, which will be held next door at the historic Anderson House. The Fairfax is right near Dupont Circle, with easy access to restaurants, shops, and a Metro station. Nearby are the Phillips Academy, Woodrow Wilson’s house, and the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens, designed by Wharton’s niece Beatrix Farrand.

Please check the conference web site and/or like the conference Facebook page in order to keep up with information as it becomes available.

We’re very excited about the conference, and we look forward to seeing you in June!
