SSAWW Texas Regional Study Group (RSVP by 2.1.2019)

SSAWW Texas Regional Study Group

The Spring 2019 meeting of the Texas Regional SSAWW Study Group is fast approaching! We will be gathering on February 23, 2019 at the University of North Texas in Denton, hosted by John Edward Martin and Angie Calcaterra. The common reading will be Effie M. Moore’s Alone by the Sea: The Story of Jane Wilkinson Long, Mother of Texas (San Antonio: Naylor Company, 1951) [ebook and print-on-demand versions available]. This book is part of an exciting digitization project hosted by UNT Libraries, which we will have the opportunity to learn more about.
RSVP by February 1 to John Edward Martin at john.martin@unt.edu — and please indicate if you will need a parking pass, any dietary restrictions, and whether or not you plan to stay for dinner.
More information about the Spring meeting is available on our website: https://txssaww.wordpress.com/
The Study Group is an informal gathering of professors, graduate students, and independent scholars who share an interest in American women’s writing. We share a lunch (provided by the host
campus), spend the afternoon discussing the common reading, and have dinner at a local restaurant (paid individually).
We welcome new participants to join the conversation, which is always rich and stimulating, and often touches on larger professional concerns (teaching, publishing, mentoring, etc.). Please circulate this announcement to your colleagues and grad students.
