Texas Regional SSAWW Study Group: Save the Date

The Spring 2020 meeting of the Texas Regional SSAWW Study Group will take place on Saturday February 29, 2020 at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, hosted by Sarah Salter. The common reading will be Leonor Villegas de Magnón’s The Rebel, an autobiographyoriginally written in Spanish in the 1920s but unpublished until Arte Publico’s editions in 1994/2004. Participants are invited to read the text in either of its editions; the English-language edition is available here: https://artepublicopress.com/product/the-rebel/

RSVP by February 1, 2020 by emailing Sarah Salter (sarah.salter@tamucc.edu), and please indicate whether you will stay for dinner.

More details regarding location, lodging, parking, etc. will be available at our website as the event gets closer: http://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.).
