Proposals are due by November 23, 2015
The NJ History and Historic Preservation Conference attracts a broad audience of professionals, historic site and museum managers, historic preservation commission members, and more. The conference planning committee seeks to balance its program by offering educational sessions during each time slot of the day that target the following primary audiences:
● Architects seeking AIA education credits
● Planners seeking AICP education credits
● Landscape Architects seeking ASLA education credits
● Cultural Resource Management professionals
● History and museum non-profit staff, board and volunteers
● Historic Preservation Commissions, CLG representatives, and municipal and planning officials
● History and historic preservation advocates
● Students and emerging professionals
Proposals that address topics of interest to more than one of the target audiences will be given preference by the selection committee.
The Poster Session is an opportunity to present work. Posters must engage subjects or projects related to historic preservation, history, archaeology, architecture, planning, museum studies, and/or public history. Submissions related to New Jersey subject matter are especially encouraged.
Posters will be chosen from among the submissions for display at the conference. A prize of $250 will be awarded for the best poster. All individuals whose posters are selected for display will receive a complimentary registration to both the 2016 and 2017 NJ History & Historic Preservation Conference.
The conference provides a unique opportunity for students and emerging professional to explore careers in historic preservation, network with professionals, and share their research with a professional audience.
