AHLP STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE!
The Alliance for Historic Landscape Preservation announces the availability of Student Scholarships for its annual conference in Natchitoches, Louisiana, USA, April 2 – 4, 2020.
NATCHITOCHES IN THE RED RIVER VALLEY: A CONFLUENCE OF CULTURES
The Alliance for Historic Landscape Preservation (AHLP) is pleased to announce that its 42nd annual meeting will be held in Natchitoches, Louisiana, on the theme of Natchitoches in the Red River Valley: A Confluence of Cultures. The AHLP invites students to participate by presenting papers or sharing summaries of their work regarding cultural landscape conservation and preservation. We especially encourage students to submit proposals that focus on the landscapes of the Red River Valley its environs, but we also welcome proposals that address broader conference themes such as the role and significance of transnational immigration; cultural exchange and adaptation (especially from French, Caddo Indian, Spanish, African and American cultures); landscapes of segregation, enslavement and the establishment of free communities; topics regarding political and religious landscapes, and examples of best practices in the conservation of historic and cultural landscapes.
Up to two scholarships are available to assist students in attending and presenting research at the annual meeting.
One student will be invited to present his or her studies in cultural landscape conservation as part of the conference paper sessions.
One student will be invited to present his or her studies as a poster during the poster sessions of the conference program.
Each scholarship includes a waiver of the conference registration fee, and an award of $1000 to offset travel and lodging expenses. Currently-enrolled upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline related to cultural landscape conservation may apply.
