The Friends of New Jersey Heritage along with our co-hosts are pleased to present the 2023 New Jersey History and Historic Preservation Conference: FUN AND FURY to be held in June.
We are happy to
announce that our Poster Session will be returning to the conference this year!
The Poster Session is an opportunity for undergraduates, graduate students and
young professionals to present research projects on a variety of topics
including historic preservation and climate change, preservation’s role in
tourism, out of state preservation tools and techniques applied to New Jersey,
and many others. Thanks to a generous donation by the New Jersey Council for
the Humanities, there will be a first-place prize of $250 and a second-place
prize of $100. All individuals whose posters are selected for display will
receive complimentary registration to the conference.
Please submit session proposals online by the deadline of Thursday, February 2, 2023. Your submission will be reviewed for completeness, and you will be notified of the acceptance of your proposal by no later than March 2023. All proposals must include:
- Project Title
- Abstract that explains and promotes the project (limit 150 words)
- One-page CV or resume for each participant
- Simple visual mock-up of the display submitted as a PDF (Final Posters should be no larger than 36"x48" on poster board and should stand on their own easel)
- Contact information for each participant (Name, address, email, phone number, and affiliation)
Posters will be chosen based on the persuasiveness of the abstract, clarity of the visual presentation, and the project’s relation to major issues in the field.
