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.
Gentle reminder to our friends far and wide: deadline for submitting proposals to be part of SASA’s next big biennial conference—next February 19-22 in midtown Atlanta—is around the corner, as in Friday, September 12! Our website, http://www.southernamericanstudiesassociation.org, has info about our focus, ‘RECONSTRUCTION—1865—1965—2015,’ plus plenty of ideas for topics. Here, in the spirit of lagniappe, is another: Sister Rosetta Tharp would’ve turned 100 next March(!), R.I.P., so get those thinking caps on and get those proposals on their way! Looking forward, Dennis Moore, recovering SASA prez, on behalf of our current president, Professor Krystyn Moon
Good morning. Krystyn Moon, who manages SASA’s website (and who’ll be our next prez!), has posted the Call For Participants for SASA’s next biennial conference—next February 19-22 at the Atlanta Westin Hotel—at http://www.southernamericanstudiesassociation.org. As you’ll see, deadline for proposing a paper or a panel is September 14.
Rebecca Hill of Kennesaw State University, who’s organizing the conference, heartily encourages presentations, workshops, roundtables, and performance pieces that address the theme of Reconstruction, broadly conceived—and, as ever, SASA welcomes proposals on other topics that reflect the richness of American Studies.
As ever, we also welcome participation by graduate students and remind everyone that details about our Critoph Prize are at our website, along with links to our recent biennial conferences. There’s also our Facebook site, so Like us—and mark your calendars now to be part of another exciting conference next February in warm Atlanta! Looking forward, Dennis Moore
