Due to the winter surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant, the SSSL Program Committee has voted to reschedule the 2022 conference to June 26-29, 2022. The Hyatt Centric has been a strong partner in helping the Program Committee achieve its goals of hosting an ethical, accessible, and sustainable conference experience, and as part of our rescheduling agreement, we have confirmed that June 26-29 are the final dates for this year’s SSSL Conference.


The 2022 biennial conference of the Society for the Study of Southern Literature will be held for the first time ever in Atlanta, Georgia, Sunday, June 26 – Wednesday, June 29, 2022, in hybrid modality.

We are committed to hosting an ethical, accessible, and sustainable conference and welcome your feedback on ways that we can continue improving and expanding our Conference Vision.

Please feel free to email the conference planners directly with questions or feedback: sssl2022atl@gmail.com.
