Call for Proposals – 10th Annual Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Conference

Proposals for workshops are being accepted from now until February 4, 2019 for this year’s conference which will be held May 31 through June 1, 2019 in Cambridge, MD.  This year’s theme, “It Ran on Faith,” definitely describes Harriet’s approach to her life, as well as those who worked in secret, helping others to freedom.

This conference invites historians, students, educators, researchers, genealogists, artists and others to share and compare, interpret and celebrate this story based on family, freedom, community and faith.  We are seeking proposals related to the realities and complexities of slavery, escapes and those who made escapes possible with an undercurrent of faith.

Workshop sessions by individuals or groups should be one hour in length.  All programming benefits from audience interaction.

Proposals should include the title and type of the presentation.  Presenter information needed includes name, organization, email, phone number and mailing address.  A short bio and photo should be included in presenter’s submission.

The presentation must be explained by describing the topic/theme in 300 words or less.  The intended audience and technology requirements must also be included.
