RE: [SACC-L] Savannah!
Is anyone subscribed to Anthro-L and willing to forward this to them? I had to unsubscribe because my e-mail is so spam-filled that Anthro-L’s message volume choked my account. The College is trying out a spam filter at the moment, hopefully I can re-subscribe soon.

Subject: [SACC-L] Savannah!
Just wanted to let everyone know that planning is coming along for the Savannah meetings. Rebecca Stein has sent the call for papers and I hope you have received it. The theme of the conference is "Diaspora: People in Motion."
We'll be staying at the Days Inn Savannah. This is a historic hotel just two blocks from the Savannah River and within walking distance of just about everything you'd like to do. http://www.daysinnsavannah.com/ I am on the road right now, but will send the information regarding reservations in the next day or so.
I will be in Savannah next week to make final arrangements with the Penn Center where we will spend time learning about Gullah culture and have a low-country boil. I am hoping that we will be able to have a Gullah expert as our keynote speaker. I'll know more about that next week. And, since this group loves to eat, we'll have one meal at Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House where we will have real Southern Cooking.
Be sure to read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" (in your spare time) or see the movie before we visit Savannah. Also, you might want to listen to those old Johnny Mercer tunes, since his family home is in the Historic District.
You'll definitely want to bring walking shoes with you. Savannah has been rated #1 for walking and in late March/early April the azaleas should be in bloom and the color spectacular.
