The program is here.
The Planning and Site Committees are excited to announce the conference’s Keynote Speaker, Professor and Department Chair Susan Schulten, author and history professor at the University of Denver, who will speak on “Maps and the Stories They Tell”:
Whether as handmaidens of diplomacy, instruments of social reform, or even advertisements, maps have been central to American history. Across five centuries, maps have captured what people knew, what they thought they knew, what they hoped for, and what they feared. As such, they have the power to both illuminate and complicate our understanding of the past. Join us as Susan Schulten explores the myriad ways that maps have both reflected and shaped American history, narrating our past from the voyages of discovery to the digital age.
The Gala Dinner will be held at the spectacular (and historical) Chautauqua Park.
