The Underground Railroad, Its Legacies, and Our Communities
The Planning Committee of the Eighth Underground Railroad (UGR)
History Conference is soliciting brief proposals for presentations,
panels, and workshops that address the above theme. Proposals should
be made for a 60-minute workshop session, for a poster session or
exhibition, or for a cultural/artistic activity.
We ask that all proposals allow for significant audience interaction.
And, while we urge that proposals focus on the conference theme, we
also invite proposals on other important topics concerning
Underground Railroad history. See the full call for proposals
document at: www.ugrworkshop.com.
The Eighth Annual UGR History Conference will be held at College
Park, Union College, Schenectady, NY, on February 27-28, 2009. It is
sponsored by the Underground Railroad History Project of the Capital
