Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are meant to bring people with similar interests together in AERA in a setting that is less overwhelming and less anonymous than AERA at large. If your interests align with ours, consider making LSP one of your "homes" in AERA.

Stay in touch with us through Facebook or Twitter!
