Dear stream and panel organizers!
The deadline for submissions of paper proposals for the SASS conference in Puerto Rico is approaching this Sunday, December 1. We will issue an extension on Monday, with a final deadline of December 15. We hope this gives you enough time to recruit even more contributors to your fascinating streams, and to alert anyone else who might be interested!
Please make sure that all contributors submit their abstracts individually, and register for the conference. All three steps of registration (submission of papers for streams, for pre-constituted panels and roundtables, or for the general pool of individual papers; registration; hotel booking) can be found on the conference page: https://scandinavianstudy.org/annual-meeting/sass-2020-puerto-rico/
After the call closes, we will contact the stream chairs to review the proposals and help us schedule the program.
You might also want to alert your contributors to two post-conference excursions to St. Barthélemy and the US Virgin Islands, offered to conference participants in collaboration with the Swedish St:Barthélemysällskapet/St Barth Evasion, and CHANT (Crucian Heritage And Nature Tourism). The excursions will take place from May 3-6 (Sunday to Wednesday, return flights from San Juan), and can be booked individually with the agencies. Save the date – and check the conference pages for updates and more information.
Please let us know if you have any other questions, worries, or wishes at this stage.
Thank you for contributing to SASS 2020!
On behalf of the organizing committee: Lill-Ann Körber
