The Southern American Studies Association is the largest, and one of the most respected regional chapters of the American Studies Association (U.S.A.). SASA, with a mailing list of over 700 and an active membership of 500, presents new developments and findings in American Studies scholarship, identified and defines areas of debate about the nature of American culture and its study, and conducts cultural and historical programs on the South and its communities. American Studies specifies an interdisciplinary investigation of American culture in order to better understand the institutional patterns, beliefs, and values of America’s pluralistic society.
Hi, everyone. Scott Peeples and I’ve worked up a fuller, more detailed schedule for the Charleston conference, and we’ll be able to post it in a day or two at SASA’s website, southernamericanstudiesassociation.org.
Meanwhile, this note about our e-mail listserv: a few minutes ago I posted a note along these same lines, there, and was able to attach a pdf of this more detailed schedule, so here’s a thought:
if you’re not already on that listserv, you know
you want to be!, so please send a quick e-mail
to that effect to my predecessor as SASA prez,
Eric Gary Anderson, at eandersd at gmu.edu.
Safe travels, everyone —D.M.
Hi there, fellow SASA folks, and won’t it be great to get to Charleston! On that note, two notes:
If you haven’t yet registered you know who you
are, so do go ahead, Please + Thank You.
If you’re a grad student who is on the Charleston
program, you’ve been patiently awaiting word
on those first-ever MINI-TRAVEL-GRANTS for grad
students on the program, so here we go:
Through the generosity of our membership, we’ve received enough contributions to fund up to seven mini-travel-grants of $150 each; each one we award will be in the form of a check you’d pick up when you show up at the registration table, and meanwhile here’s the way to apply:
Send an e-mail to our Secretary-Treasurer,
Prof. Lynne Adrian, at “ladrian [at] tenhoor.as.ua.edu,”
with “MINI-TRAVEL-GRANT” in your subject line And
with this crucial info in your message: title of your
paper And title of session on which it’ll appear.
In this first year of even having these mini-grants,
we’re filling requests from grad students who
are on the program in the order in which our
hard-working Secretary-Treasurer receives them,
via that e-mail address above.
Simply as a reminder, info about the sessions is in the Basic Schedule that’s on view at SASA’s new-in-2012 website, southernamericanstudiesassociation.org, and via a post or two at our Facebook page. Keep an eye out, next week, for more detailed version, even including names of panel chairs!
Looking forward, everybody,
p.s. if, repeat if you’re not yet on SASA’s e-mail listserve but would like to be, and who could blame you!, please e-mail either me Or my immediate predecessor as SASA prez, Eric Gary Anderson, at “eandersd [at] gmu.edu”
check out SASA’s Facebook page AND the “NEWS” link at our brand-new-in-2012 website, southernamericanstudiesassociation.org—which has a “Take me to Charleston” button that leads to yet more info on our upcoming bienniale!
Frexample, there’s a reminder that while the special conference rate the historic Francis Marion Hotel’s giving us—only $139 plus tax per night—is available only until 5 p.m. EST this Friday, January 4, they’ll continue booking rooms at the “prevailing rate” as long as rooms’re available.
Won’t be long!, so for now, Ciao, y’all —D.M.
Happy new year, everyone, And happy sesquicentenary to the Emancipation Proclamation. If you’ve taken a look at our Facebook page this morning, you’ll recognize this note. . .
You might well have already seen “The Emancipation
of Abe Lincoln,” historian Eric Foner’s Op-Ed piece
in this morning’s NYT, and you might well have already
read THE FIERY TRIAL. Keep in mind, please, that
a month from tonight its author, historian ERIC FONER,
will deliver the keynote address for our biennial conference,
whose theme we’ve borrowed from President Lincoln:
“We All Declare for Liberty.” Midday that same Friday
he will have participated in SASA’s third interdisciplinary
Colloquy—on, yep, THE FIERY TRIAL. The evening
before, as in the last day of this brand-new month, we’ll
have quite the Opening Reception, followed by quite the
plenary talk by historian TIYA MILES!
At our Fb site there’s also an especially timely note about the special conference rate of $139 per night that’s available—until 5 p.m. EST this Friday, January 4—at Charleston’s historic Francis Marion Hotel, plus a reminder about REGISTERING FOR THE CONFERENCE, via our new-in-2012 website, southernamericanstudiesassociation.org, where there’s a “Take me to Charleston!” button.
Looking forward, big-time—D.M.
Hi, everyone. As of a few moments ago, a pdf containing our basic schedule for SASA’s next biennial conference—January 31-February 2 in Charleston—is available at SASA’s Facebook page; if I knew how to attach a pdf here I would, and as soon as possible we’ll post it at our website, southernamericanstudiesassociation.org—where there’s already quite the cool “Take me to Charleston!” button that leads to plenty of info about this conference, where our plenary talks will be by Eric Foner and Tiya Miles. Meanwhile, happy ho-ho-hollydays to us all. —Dennis Moore
