The Scandinavianists at The University of Mississippi welcome the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study to its 96th annual meeting, which will be held in Oxford, Mississippi, May 4-6, 2006.
Topics to be addressed are open, but the organizers encourage participants to confer with colleagues about forming panels of shared interest to submit as a group of three or four. Given the location of the conference, papers on cultural and other connections between Norden and Mississippi/the American South are especially welcome.
Listings of any panels in search of participants along with contact information for the panel organizer will be posted to the updates section of the conference web site at www.croft.olemiss.edu/
If you have an intriguing idea and would like to find others with like interests, consult the web site or submit a suggestion for a panel that can be posted there.
