2009 Underground Railroad History Conference

The Planning Committee of the Eighth Underground Railroad History Conference is soliciting brief proposals for presentations, panels, and workshops that address the theme "The Underground Railroad, Its Legacies, and Our Communities". Proposals should be made for a 60-minute workshop session, for a poster session or exhibition, or for a cultural/artistic activity. The UGR asks that all proposals allow for significant audience interaction. And, while the conference committee urges that proposals focus on the conference theme, the group also invites proposals on other important topics concerning Underground Railroad history.

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 Region, Inc.
