35th Conference on New York State History
The 35th Conference on New York State History will take place on June 12-14, 2014 and will be hosted by Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
What is the Conference?
The Conference on New York State History is an annual meeting of academic and public historians, librarians and archivists, educators, publishers, and other interested individuals who come together to discuss topics and issues related to the people of New York State in historical perspective and to share information and ideas regarding historical research, programming, and the networking of resources and services.
Presentation formats may include:
• Presentation sessions (Chair and 3 presenters; 75 minutes)
• Panel/Roundtable discussion sessions (Chair/Moderator and 3–4 panelists; 75 minutes)
• Workshops and practical sessions (workshops 3–5 hours; practical sessions 75 minutes)
• Individual presentations (25 minutes)
Preference will be given to full session proposals. We encourage presenters to take a dynamic approach, including
the use of visual and audio aids, audience participation, and discussions, rather than solely reading a paper.
Lodging is available on Thursday and Friday nights in Marist College dorms for $25/night. The rooms are singles, with shared bathrooms, and have A/C. Please be advised that the dorms do not include linens, so you are responsible for bringing your own towels, sheets, blankets, etc.
We have also arranged for a special $114/night rate at the Holiday Inn Express in Poughkeepsie. The code for the discounted rate is HIS. Please call (845) 473-1151 to make your reservation.
