Unfortunately, reserving a room block at a local hotel was not possible this year. Individuals will need to make reservations based on availability.
A limited number of rooms may be available at the Scarritt Bennett center itself. Participants are encouraged to book these early as the center hosts other conferences as well and will not hold rooms in advance without payment. Reserving a block was not financially feasible. These rooms are around $100 per night. Address:
There are about a dozen hotels within walking distance of the conference. We recommend the following:
Nashville International Airport (BNA) is located 15 - 20 minutes drive from the Scarritt Bennett Center. There is no public transit option to speak of and participants are advised to book a taxi, Uber or Lyft. The price one way should be around $30.
There will be an exhibit of books and journals of interest to the Society's members. Authors should have their publisher representative contact the conference host, Andrew Davis (andrew.davis [@] belmont.edu).
