  1. Believe it or not, it has been 4 1/2 months since our 2014 meeting. That means it is time to gear up for this year’s conference. Look for updates and the cfp to be posted by April 15th. In the interim, please promote ASAT 2015 by encouraging faculty (current and retired), professionals and graduate student submissions of paper, poster, panel and project proposals.

    1. Wanted to offer an update regarding this year’s cfp: I will send out the electronic version as soon as finals are over (3 days-:) ). In the meantime, I am working with campus Web Development to update the conference website so that it can be linked to ASAT’s site.
      Looking forward to another great meeting-

  2. Those who presented at the 2014 conference should have received this year’s cfp via the email address provided last year. It is also posted on h-net and will be included on the conference website, which will again be linked to this site.

  3. We are thrilled that Dr. T. Lindsey Baker (Tarleton State University) has signed on as one of the featured speakers at this year’s meeting. He has written books over Texas gangster culture, ghost towns, and Polish immigration to the U.S.
    Also a reminder that the deadline for abstracts/proposals is fast approaching-September 5th: start promoting and producing!

  4. We are extending the submission deadline for this year’s conference to September 15th. However, the registration deadline is still October 5th.

  5. Hello, everyone. I just sent this year’s registration form to David for posting and will have the conference schedule available by Monday November 2nd. At that point, absolutely no changes may be made in session scheduling. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on our campus in a couple of weeks!

    1. The Registration Form was quickly added to the website ( just copy, paste to your word processor, print, and dash off a check. We’ll see y’all in Huntsville!

  6. I am sure I speak for everyone in ASAT when I say that our hearts go out to our colleagues and their families who live in areas of Texas and Louisiana devastated by Hurricane Harvey. You are in our thoughts.
    Barbara Miles,
    ASAT President
