The Southern Historical Association will hold its seventy-sixth annual meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, on November 4-7, 2010, Thursday through Sunday, at the Westin Charlotte hotel. The number of special events related to our Charlotte setting include an opening-night reception at the Levine Museum of the New South, a session on NASCAR and its relation to Charlotte and the South on the occasion of the newly opened NASCAR Hall of Fame, located across the street from the Westin, and a film showing of an acclaimed 2008 documentary, Moving Midway, about the relocation of a North Carolina plantation house. The Local Arrangements Committee, chaired by Jurgen Buchenau of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, has arranged for a number of bus and walking tours spotlighting various historical features of the Queen City. On Friday night, President William J. Cooper Jr. will present his presidential address, titled "A Critical Signpost on the Road to Secession."

The printed program will be mailed later this month, but the SHA website (www.uga.edu/sha) has the full program listed, in addition to other information about the Charlotte meeting. Hotel reservations at the Westin can be made through a link on the SHA website as well.

Graduate students attending this year's meeting in Charlotte should plan to attend the tenth annual luncheon given in their behalf and sponsored by the John and LaWanda Cox Fund at noon on Friday, November 5. The program this year will be a panel of journal editors, chaired by John B. Boles, who will offer advice about submitting work for publication and answer questions from students regarding protocol, strategies, and the process of journal publishing. The luncheon is free to students registered for the meeting, but spouses, children, and other companions cannot be accommodated. Rather than being reserved in advance, tickets will be distributed to the first hundred students requesting them when they register on-site.

All graduate students and junior faculty members (within three years of completion of their doctorates) who are presenting papers at this year's meeting are encouraged to submit their papers for consideration for the William E Holmes Award for the best paper given at the annual meeting. They should submit three copies of the paper, in the form in which it is to be delivered at the meeting, to the SHA office by September 1, 2010, in order to be considered. This year's award committee consists of John M. Coski, Museum of the Confederacy, chair; Diane M. Sommerville, Binghamton University, State University of New York; and Elizabeth Hayes Turner, University of North Texas.

The 2011 Program Committee, chaired by Craig Thompson Friend, North Carolina State University, has issued a call for papers for the seventy-seventh annual meeting, which will be held in Baltimore on October 27-30, 2011. …
