Call for Submissions American, British and Canadian Studies
This is a very important note to inform you that the dates for the 2013 SDS Conference have been moved back by exactly one week to Wednesday, June 26 - Saturday, June 29, 2013. The location of the conference will remain the same, the Doubletree Hotel at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, USA.
This change was made necessary because the rapid increase in the size of attendance at the annual SDS Conference. Since this location had been originally arranged, the size of the conference has increased by nearly 50%! In order to ensure plenty of sleeping rooms and appropriate meeting space - SDS needed to renegotiate with the host hotel.

2nd Annual Graduate Student Conference
California State University, Long Beach
Tentative Date: Thursday, 11 April 2013
Abstracts Due: Tuesday, 1 January 2013
Vi è una terra nel sud Italia, ricca di miti, credenze e tradizioni, che sembra soffrire ancora oggi, spesso suo malgrado, di molteplici pregiudizi e di una apparentemente inesorabile tendenza all'oblio. Laddove il mar Tirreno e quello Ionio si incontrano e si fondono, nelle cui correnti tuttora si nasconderebbero creature divine, laddove le montagne imponenti e al contempo benevole contemplano i tremori delle proprie pendici in un dialogo non sempre silenzioso con i propri fratelli vulcani, in questo territorio crudo e familiare c'è chi si impegna affinché il tesoro della cultura, motore portante ed imprescindibile di una mutazione, nonostante tutto, in continua evoluzione, si tramandi.
