Join us in the City of Brotherly Love for VAF’s 40th Annual Conference. This conference explores the successive and overlapping built peripheries of the city, from the early 18th century to the present. Through a study of the zones around the city core, we take conference goers on a journey along the arteries and into the formerly peripheral urban zones that are now incorporated into and transformed by surrounding urban fabric. The conference documents the blurred divisions between city and countryside, commercial and residential, rich and poor neighborhoods over a landscape shaped by the rivers, railways and trolley lines, and interstates.
The Annual Harriett Tubman Underground Railroad Conference will be held on May 31 and June 1, 2019 in Dorchester County. This year’s theme is “It Ran on Faith.” The conference invites historians, students, educators, researchers, genealogists, artists and others to share and compare, interpret and celebrate this story based on family, freedom, community and faith.
Hosted by The Montgomery County Chapters of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution
