The Spring 2020 meeting of the Texas Regional SSAWW Study Group is coming up soon: Saturday February 29 at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, hosted by Sarah Salter. The common reading will be Leonor Villegas de Magnón’s The Rebel, an autobiography originally written in Spanish in the 1920s but unpublished until Arte Publico’s editions in 1994/2004. Available here: https://artepublicopress.com/product/the-rebel/
Please RSVP to Sarah by February 1 at: firstname.lastname@example.org and please indicate whether you will attend the dinner.
More details regarding the schedule, location, lodging, etc. are available at our website: http://txssaww.wordpress.com/
This year, our meeting coincides with a wonderful local event: During the February meeting, TAMU-CC and Del Mar Community College will be hosting the South Texas People’s Poetry Fest (Feb. 27-29). This festival, now in its fifth year, collects writers of poetry from faculty, student, and professional communities across the region.
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 help us spread the word by circulating this announcement to your colleagues and graduate students.
