Date: November 5-8, 2014

Location: SJSU Student Union

So Many Roads will bring together scholars, participants, and enthusiasts for a ground-breaking five-day international conference and symposium exploring the meaning and impact of the Grateful Dead phenomenon.

The conference represents the culmination of five decades of academic work on the Grateful Dead phenomenon, and demonstrates how scholarly understanding of the Grateful Dead leads to broader understanding of a host of associated literary, historical, artistic, and social contexts and issues.

So Many Roads will allow academics from a wide array of fields to show how they collaborate collegially and effectively, explaining the relevance of our work and demonstrating that the academy as not an ivory tower, but a resource for lifelong learning and cultural enrichment.
