Saturday Night Banquet Dinner:
The MAA’s 2019 annual meeting will be held at the University of Mississippi in Oxford on Saturday March 30. All of the Saturday events will take place on the first floor of Lamar Hall on the Ole Miss campus. We will have papers on Saturday morning and afternoon. Papers will be 20 minutes, and the room will be equipped with a computer and projector for Powerpoint presentations. If you would like to present, please email a title and abstract to Tony Boudreaux (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 15, 2019.
On Saturday evening, we will have a catfish dinner provided by Taylor Grocery and a keynote address by Ed Jackson. The dinner from Taylor Grocery on Saturday night will consist of catfish, slaw, hush puppies, salad, and tea. If you plan to eat and hear Ed’s keynote, and you should, the cost will be $20.00 per person. Please pay for the keynote dinner by using the PayPal link above no later than March 18, 2019.
If you would prefer to pay for your registration and/or banquet meal by check, please mail your check to the MAA Secretary, Derek Anderson, at the Cobb Institute of Archaeology, P.O. Box AR, Mississippi State, MS 39762.
On Sunday morning March 31, Jay Johnson and Nikki Mattson will give a guided tour of the Batesville Mounds, located about 30 minutes west of Oxford in Batesville, Mississippi. The Batesville Mounds are located near Interstate 55, so they should be a good departure point for many people heading home.
We have made arrangements for a small block of rooms (see details below) with the Courtyard by Marriott ($159 per night), which is near campus and within walking distance to Lamar Hall, and the Holiday Inn Express ($129 per night), which is a very short drive from campus. We were told by both hotels that they expect to sell out their rooms that weekend. Wherever you plan to stay, please book early because it looks like it will be a busy weekend in Oxford.
The Holiday Inn Express in Oxford (662-236-2500) has a meeting rate of $129/night for double beds (use code AAM).
Courtyard by Marriott (662-638-6014) has a meeting rate of $159/night for a single king bed.
Please contact Tony Boudreaux (email@example.com), Jay Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Maureen Meyers (email@example.com) if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Oxford in March.
