The Association

The sixty-seventh meeting of the Southern Historical Association will be held on Friday through Monday, November 16-19, 2001, in New Orleans, Louisiana, with the Fairmont Hotel serving as the headquarters hotel. The Program and Local Arrangements Committees for the New Orleans meeting have arranged for some special events celebrating the city's great jazz tradition.

The opening session on Friday evening will be entitled Louis Armstrong and His Music: A Centennial Celebration. Bruce B. Raeburn will preside and James Ketch will speak on Armstrong's music and his contributions to jazz. Mr. Ketch, a trumpeter, will also perform at the session along with other jazz musicians. Following that session, we will be led by the Treme Brass Band in a parade from the Fairmont Hotel down Bourbon Street in a time-honored New Orleans tradition of "second-linin'." The parade will lead us to a jazz reception at the Presbytere in Jackson Square.

The presidential address on Sunday night will be followed by a brief reception at the Fairmont. SHA members will then have the option of attending a dinner and party at Donna's Bar and Grill, one of the French Quarter's great jazz clubs. The entire club will be turned over to the SHA for a night of jazz performed by Bob French and the Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, with an all-you-can-eat dinner of barbecue, red beans and rice, and coleslaw. Tickets for this event are $15 and can be reserved through a form in the program, or at the registration desk at the meeting, if places are still available. Seating will be limited, so members are urged to respond early. For more details on all of these events, see either the program or the SHA website. Because of these special events, both the opening session and the presidential address will take place earlier in the evening than is usually the case. Please note times in the program.

The forty-six regular sessions will include Anthologizing Southern Literature: Reacting to The New Norton Anthology; Race, Gender, and Identity in the Lower Mississippi Valley in the Eighteenth Century; Students, Slaves, and the Sentimental: New Directions for Confederate Nationalism; The Crescent City at a Crossroads: Sex, Race, and Business in New Orleans, 1870-1920; Women and Whiteness: Defining Southern Womanhood in Words and Images, 1900-1940; Southern Pentecostalism in Black and White: The Traditions of Invention; The Gaze and the State: Locating Medical Authority in Modern Britain and Germany; Crime or Poverty?
