S-USIH Is on Its Way to Dallas!

Your dedicated Dallas Conference Committee

Hello, everyone! Here are a few notes regarding our upcoming conference, running from Thursday, October 26th to Sunday, October 29th.

  • The last day to make reservations at the hotel at the conference rate is tomorrow (Tuesday), October 4th.  If conference rate rooms are booked up, a phone call to the hotel will result in release of more rooms. however, after October 5th, there is no guarantee of availability.
  • Whitney Stewart is looking for graduate student volunteers from colleges & universities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to help with registration, etc. They should email her at whit [dot] n [dot] stew [at] gmail [dot] com.
  • For those of you starting to plan your ground transportation, whether you are flying in to Dallas-Fort Worth airport (DFW) or Dallas Love Field airport (DAL), the best option for arriving at the hotel is via an airport shuttle service, a taxi, Uber / Lyft, or a rental car.For those renting a car or driving their own cars to the conference, the parking rate is $14 per day for self-parking, $17 per day for valet parking, and $20 per day for valet overnight parking.  However, hotel garage parking (self-parking) is complimentary on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Finally, Christopher Cameron and I are putting together a mentor-mentee program for the conference matching up graduate students with senior faculty who are attending the conference. In the past, we’ve had great success with this program, contacting people to match them together by interest and allowing them to set up a time and place to meet for coffee or lunch. If you are interested in participating as either a mentor or a mentee, please email me soon at andrew [dot] seal [at] gmail [dot] com.

I look forward to seeing you all in Dallas!

  1. On the Friday night of the conference THE BASTARDS OF SOUL play at The Foundry/Chickenscratch in downtown Dallas. Semi-outdoor venue, plenty of room, no cover, local brews, food, great soul/r&b revue featuring some of Dallas’s best local musicians. http://cs-tf.com/events/

  2. Update: Self-parking on Thursday and Friday is *complimentary* for conference attendees staying at the hotel. Self-parking is free for everyone on Saturday and Sunday.
