On April 16, 2015, the annual Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Conference conveyed at the Loews Hotel in Atlanta, GA. This year's theme was "Mobilities" to reflect Atlanta's status as a city on the move, a city of exchanges, and a city with one of the busiest airports in the world. With over 320 presenters, 85 panels, 2 plenary sessions, and 2 keynote speakers, this conference celebrated the 30th Anniversary of INCS in grand style. http://incs2015.lmc.gatech.edu/
