PRESIDENT’S LETTER
Dear SCOLAS Members:
Thank you to all who came to Santo Domingo and participated in the 42nd Annual Southwest Conference of Latin American Studies Conference. For those who were unable to attend, I’d like to report that it went wonderfully.
We had the Opening Reception at the renowned Casa de Teatro, with its founder, Freddy Ginebra, and the former Dominican Ambassador to the United States, Bernardo Vega, helping to kick off the conference. For those who stayed on after the reception, DR jazz newcomer, Sabrina Estepan made the wait worthwhile. At the V Centenario Hotel, across the Malecon from the sparkling blue sea, we enjoyed three days of panels covering a wide range of disciplines. SCOLAS hosted nearly 150 presenters from three continents. These panelists developed conference themes as well as presented their own research findings on a variety of topics. As well, at the luncheon in Thursday, we enjoyed a lively talk on the arts in the Dominican Republic by Freddy Ginebra and profited from a thought-provoking keynote address from the outgoing Ambassador to the United States, Flavio Dario Espinal, as part of the Friday night dinner. At the dinner as well, John Hart, author of The Silver of the Sierra Madre: John Robinson, Boss Shepherd, and the People of the Canyons, published in 2008 by the University of Arizona Press, received the Harvey L. Johnson Book Award. Further, the membership brought Pauline Warren and Mike Ward to the Board as new members.
It is a bit hard to believe, but we have begun planning next year’s conference, which will be in Santa Fe, NM, March 23- 27, 2010 at the La Fonda Hotel on the Plaza. We intend to kick off this conference with another memorable Opening Reception on Wednesday night (the 23rd), for those of you marking your calendars. We have negotiated a fantastic rate at the hotel, which you may remember from the 2001 Conference -- $119/single, $139/double including breakfast in the La Plazuela Restaurant, not including taxes. As we discussed at the business meeting, one way that we can keep the conference registration fees low is all SCOLAS participants stay at the conference hotel, so we encourage you to take advantage of this super rate. As well, rumor has it that American Airlines soon will be flying direct into Santa Fe from Dallas, which may help those who don’t want to rent cars or take the train or shuttle in from the Albuquerque Airport. (Please watch http://www.baylor.edu/SCOLAS/ for transportation information.)
While we celebrate Santa Fe’s 400th anniversary, our conference theme is: Rediscovering the Americas in a “Post-American (?) World.” As most of us are experiencing personally as well as professionally, the global economic crisis has tremendous potential to rearrange “truths,” not to mention retirement plans. Books that prognosticate on a “Post-American World” are spending months on the New York Times best-sellers list. These changes have the potential to affect all sorts of relationships, including those among the states of the Americas. Given existing economic, cultural, social and political ties among these countries, we hope at the Santa Fe conference to consider what historical alterations in power, economic, social and state relations have meant, as well as what current transformations may mean, for the people, cultures, governments and economies of the Americas. This affects us across many dimensions, and we welcome paper proposals that are equally varied across the disciplines. For the formal Call for Paper and application deadlines, please check the SCOLAS website (http://www.baylor.edu/SCOLAS/) or look for our mailed Call for Papers in early September.
Again, thanks to all who helped to make the 42nd Annual Conference “One World Many Worlds, Composing the Americas” such a great event! Please mark your calendars now and plan on joining us in Santa Fe for the 43rd Annual Conference.
Sincerely,

Janet Adamski


Queridos Miembros de SCOLAS:

Muchas gracias a todos aquellos que pudieron ir a participar en la Cuadragésima Segunda Congreso Anual de la Conferencia Suroeste de Estudios de América Latina (SCOLAS). Todos ustedes que no pudieron asistir, es mi gusto informarles que nos fue maravillosamente bien.

La recepción de apertura tomo lugar en la reconocida Casa de Teatro con la presencia de su fundador, Freddy Ginebra, y Bernardo Vega, ex-embajador dominicano a los EE.UU., quienes nos ayudaron a celebrar el comienzo del congreso. Para los que se quedaron después de la recepción, Sabrina Estepan, una recién llegada al escenario de Jazz Dominicano, hizo nuestra espera valer la pena. En el Hotel V Centenario, al otro lado del Malecón con su agua cristaliza, disfrutamos de tres días de mesas que cubrieron un largo espectro de disciplinas. SCOLAS tuvo el honor de ser anfitrión de cerca de 150 académicos de tres continentes. Esos participantes desarrollaron temas de conferencia y al igual presentaron sus propios encuentros de investigación de varios puntos de interés. Durante el almuerzo del jueves disfrutamos una plática animada sobre las artes dominicanas dada por Freddy Ginebra y sacamos provecho del discurso de cierre provocante del presente embajador de la República Dominicana a los Estados Unidos, Flavio Darío Espinal, como parte de nuestra cena el viernes. En la cena, John Hart, autor del libro The Silver of the Sierra Madre: John Robinson, Boss Shepard, and the People of the Canyons publicado por la prensa de la Universidad de Arizona en 2008, recibió el premio de Harvey L. Johnson para el mejor libro del año. Tambíen dimos bienviendos al Pauline Warren y Michael Ward como miembros nuevos de la junta ejecutivo de SCOLAS.

Es difícil de creer pero hemos comenzado a planear la siguiente conferencia que tomará lugar en Santa Fe, Nuevo México del 23 al 27 de Marzo del 2010 en el hotel La Fonda en la Plaza. Es nuestra intención de abrir esta conferencia con otra Recepción de Apertura inolvidable la noche del Miércoles 23, para que marquen la fecha en su calendario. Hemos negociado un buen precio con el hotel, del cual podrán recordar de la Conferencia del 2001 fue $119/sencillo y $139/doble que incluye el desayuno en el restaurante La Plazuela, los impuestos no vienen incluidos. Como discutimos en la junta de negocios, una de las maneras en las cuales podemos mantener la cuota de registro del congreso a bajo precio para todos los participantes de SCOLAS es que todos tomemos ventajas de los bajos precios ofrecidos por el hotel de congreso. Ha habido rumores que American Airlines pronto tendrán vuelos directos a Santa Fe desde Dallas, Texas, algo que pueda ayudar a aquellos que no quieran alquilar automóviles o tomar el tren o el servicio de ida y vuelta del aeropuerto de Alburquerque. (Por favor manténganse al tanto sobre la información de transporte visitando el sitio http://www.baylor.edu/SCOLAS/).

Al celebrar el cuarto centenario de Santa Fe, nuestro tema de congreso será: Redescubriendo las Américas en un mundo “Post-Americano.” Muchos de nosotros estamos pasando por una experiencia personal al igual que profesional de los efectos de la crisis económica global y nos damos cuenta de que esta crisis tiene un potencial tremendo de redisponer “verdades”, y sin duda alguna planes de jubilación. Varios libros que pronostican un “mundo post-americano” pasan meses en la lista de los mejores vendido del New York Times. Estos cambios tienen el potencial de afectar todo tipo de relación, incluyendo aquellas entre los estados de las Américas. Dado los lazos entre lo económico, cultural, social, y político entre estos países, es nuestra esperanza que durante la conferencia en Santa Fe podamos considerar las alteraciones históricas en las relaciones de poder, económicas, sociales y estatales han significado y también averiguar el como estas transformaciones afectaran a las gentes, culturas, gobiernos, y economías de las Américas. Estos cambios nos afectan en varias dimensiones y por eso invitamos propuestas de varias disciplinas. Para el Solicitud de Ponencias y Mesas formal y la fecha de entrega de la aplicación, por favor visite el sitio de red de SCOLAS o espere nuestro llamado por correo a principios de septiembre.

¡De nuevo, les agradecemos a todos los que ayudaron hacer la Cuadragésima Segunda Congreso Anual “Las Américas: Compuestas de Un Mundo, Muchos Mundos” un gran éxito! Por favor marquen sus agendas ahora y hagan planes para acompañarnos en Santa Fe para la Cuadragésima Tercera Congreso Anual.

Sinceramente,

Janet Adamski

Why join SCOLAS?

 

The United States Southwest has been and will remain the scene of the greatest contact between Hispanic and Anglo cultures. The region’s long Hispanic heritage has helped create a prominent role for scholars of languages, history, and cultures, and for that reason SCOLAS enjoys one of the largest bases for any regional Latin American conference in the United States.



 

SCOLAS is an interdisciplinary organization that encourages diverse panels, methods, and interests. We welcome participation by any scholars dealing with Latin American-related issues, including studies of immigration, transnationalism, and U.S. Hispanic culture.

 

SCOLAS enjoys strong participation from both the United States and Mexico, giving it a bilingual atmosphere especially attractive for Latin American scholars.



 

SCOLAS hosts annual conferences in Mexico and the southwestern United States. Previous conference sites include San Antonio, New Orleans, Morelia, Santa Fe, Mérida, and Monterrey. These conferences offer stimulating panels, opportunities to meet other scholars, field trips to places of historical and cultural importance, and prizes for books, articles, and graduate students.


Participation in SCOLAS is a lifetime investment in your career. It helps you to make friendships and professional contacts among your peers at other institutions, and enhances visibility for yourself and your university.
