2008 Virginia Forum

The third annual Virginia Forum will be held on April 11-12 at Mary Washington University in Fredericksburg, Virginia. 

The Virginia Forum brings together historians, teachers, writers,
archivists, museum curators, historic site interpreters, librarians,
and others engaged in the study and interpretation of Virginia history
to share their knowledge, research, and experiences. The first Virginia
Forum took place in April 2006 at Shenandoah University in Winchester,
and the second in April 2007 at the Library of Virginia. The Forum is
an annual event and will be hosted by different universities and
historical organizations around the state in future years.

Registration is now open and the schedule is also available.  Congratulations to Jeff McClurken for pulling it all together.
