“Sharing Untold Stories” Crossroads conference to be held Jan 24

Register today for Sharing Untold Stories, Crossroads of the American Revolution’s January 24 professional development conferences for volunteers and site at historic sites and heritage organizations. The session will be held at Morven Museum & Garden, 55 Stockton Street in Princeton, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Co-sponsored by the New Jersey Historical Commission and Morven Museum & Garden, this session will equip participants with tools to uncover a broader spectrum of experiences from their sites’ past, and ways to share those histories with the public.

Participants will learn from experts in the field who’ve researched and developed inclusive interpretive programming that has attracted new visitors and given past visitors a reason to return to historic sites. They include:

  • Aleia M. Brown, Ph.D. – Assistant Director, African American History, Culture and Digital Humanities (AADHum) Initiative, University of Maryland
  • Elizabeth G. Allan – Deputy Director & Curator, Morven Museum & Garden
  • R. Isabela Morales, Ph.D. – Editor and Project Manager, Princeton & Slavery Project
  • Jane M. Eliasof – Executive Director, Montclair History Center

Registration fee includes the program and participant activities, arrival refreshments, lunch and an opportunity to tour Morven and its current exhibition, “Dreaming of Utopia: Roosevelt, New Jersey.”

Participants will also leave with helpful reference resources.

Seating is limited, so be sure to register today! Visit the event’s Eventbrite page to purchase tickets.
