October 10–11, 2017
In 2017, we’re focusing on Local Matters—and local can be broadly defined.
Our annual conference will examine the many strands that create the fabric of communities, such as festivals, buildings, schools, or the arts.
We’ll also discuss the uses of local history and the application of sophisticated methodology to personal, family, and community history.
Workshops will focus on strategies for local organizations, oral history, historic preservation, and community histories.
