Welcome to Philly!

Full page version of this post.
SSAWW 2009 "Getting Around Philadelphia" Brochure
On behalf of the SSAWW Local Arrangements Committee, Welcome to Philly! We have prepared a booklet that will be available at the Conference; in the meantime, we wanted to give you a “heads up” on activities you may want to plan before arriving at the Conference.
If this is your first visit to the City, you’ll probably want to take in “The Biggies”: Independence Hall National Historic Park, the Liberty Bell, and the Visitor’s Center. Please be aware that tickets are required for entrance to Independence Hall and may be pre-ordered at or 1-877-444-6777. Tickets are free, but get yours early so you can schedule a tour time.

$100 travel grants for graduate students

The Society is pleased to be able to support graduate students at our 2009 conference with $100 travel grants. This grant will be available to those grad students who registered by our early registration deadline of September 25 and who are presenting at the conference (i.e., on the program). You will receive your checks when you pick up your registration information at the conference. You are the future of our scholarly endeavors, and we look forward to welcoming you in Philadelphia.

We ask that those fortunate enough to have full support from their home institutions decline the reimbursement so that we can offer support to as many people as possible; if you have such funding, please notify Melissa Homestead (
