ERIC FONER in today’s NYT—AND at our upcoming biennial confrence

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.
