Under the Wire: AASLH Conference September 14-16 Focuses on Meanings in Commemoration

The American Association for State and Local History is holding its 2011 conference in Richmond, VA.  “Commemoration: The Promise of Remembrance and New Beginnings,” starts September 14 and closes on September 16.  From the program guide: “Remembrance is a dynamic challenge that poses potential conflicts when we must decide whose lens to use to see the past.”  The AASLH meeting provides a platform for discussing the changing meaning of historic events, sites and people.  You can register on-site starting September 13th.  Those unable to make this event in real life can attend an alternative online version of the event.
