Please carefully review the following important information about your visit.
Conference norms and expectations: Professional decorum is expected. Please be considerate of the fact that you are in the scholars’ work environment. If this event will be your first academic conference, please review our guide for fans on the phish.net. Note that registration is required; your name tag is your proof of registration.
No authorized recording or flash photography: Scholars use conferences to present works-in-progress and receive feedback from colleagues. OSU will record and archive presentations, but talks will only be published with the consent of individual presenters.
Artwork sales: Please remember to bring cash and/or checks for all merchandise available for purchase! Due to federal regulations we can only accept cash and checks for purchases outside of registration fees. There are ATM machines in the building for your convenience. Stephen Olker’s Baker’s Dozen mural, Magnaball “Drive In,” and Gorge Amphitheater prints will be sold at the Phish Studies conference via silent auction. Our conference poster is by Jamie Lee Meyer and will be sold for $30. T-shirts featuring the conference logo, designed by Ryan Kerrigan, will be sold for $20. Proceeds will be donated to support registration scholarships for students and underemployed scholars attending the event. We are grateful for the artists’ generosity and honored to feature their artwork at Oregon State University. In case you’re curious why we asked for t-shirt sizes in the online registration form, we collected this information to estimate the size distribution for our order.
Smoke-free campus: Please note that OSU is a smoke-free campus. There is no smoking or vaping of any kind on campus property. If you are travelling from out-of-state, you might be excited about legal recreational cannabis in Oregon. However, because OSU receives federal funding, there can be no cannabis on campus. Anyone who violates these policies will be removed and registration fees will not be refunded.
