Dear SHERA members,

For those attending the CAA conference next month, we hope that you will join us for these SHERA-sponsored events:

  1. SHERA business meeting and lunch. We will hold a short meeting (~20 min.) on Friday, Feb. 14, at 12:30 in the Astoria Room, 3rd Floor of the Hilton. Those who wish to continue the conversation more informally will head to lunch at the nearby restaurant Nui B (888 S. Michigan Ave—a 2 min. walk from Hilton). So that we can get a rough estimate on numbers for the reservation, please RSVP here. Note that lunch attendees will be responsible for their own check. 
  2. SHERA-sponsored panel. "Freezes and Thaws in the Socialist Bloc," organized by Yelena Kalinsky and Adrian Barr, will take place Saturday, 2/15, at 4pm, 3rd Floor, Astoria Room.
  3. Anna Paluch, the winner of the Graduate Student/Independent Scholar Travel Grant, will present her paper "From Turtle Island to Vistula’s Shores: Indigenous and Slavic Futurisms in Dialogue" on the panel "The Present of the Future: Indigenous Futurisms in the Visual Arts" on Saturday, 2/15, at 2pm in Lobby Level, Continental B.


If you are involved in or know of a panel at CAA that would be interesting for our membership, please send details to by January 31. We will compile and distribute a list.

All best, and hope to see you soon!

The SHERA Board
