The Association for the Study of Connecticut History (ASCH), publisher of the journal Connecticut History, is sponsoring a one-day conference on “The City in Connecticut History.” The conference, to be held on the Fairfield University campus, will feature both concurrent and plenary sessions with speakers from diverse backgrounds discussing a wide variety of topics on The City in Connecticut, with studies from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. All aspects of the city, from the development of urban areas to the activities of its inhabitants, including investigations of life, work, family, art and culture, ethnic experiences, are welcomed and encouraged.
Many thanks to Connecticut Humanities for partial grant-funding of this conference.
