SAH MDR Conference 2017 in Victoria BC

SAH MARION DEAN ROSS / PACIFIC NORTHWEST CHAPTER ANNUAL CONFERENCE, VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA JUNE 16-18, 2017 This year's conference theme is "Commemorations." According to the National Park Service, a commemorative property is important not for association with the event or person it memorializes, but for the significance it has acquired after its creation through age, tradition, or symbolic value. Please join us in Victoria, B.C., June 16-18, 2017, to celebrate commemorations, especially the Canada 150 celebrations (1867-2017), the 100th anniversary of the US National Park System (2016), the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (2016), and the Parks Canada's Centennial (2011). We will also be recognizing Victoria's Centennial (1962) by reflecting on the on-going significance of Victoria's 1965 Centennial Square. A Call for Papers has been issued for the conference. Topics germane to the theme will be encouraged, but those covering any aspect of the built environment of the Pacific Northwest or beyond will be welcome. Abstracts will be blind peer-reviewed by the SAHMDR Review Committee. Details on how to submit a paper are in the Call for Papers. Submissions are due on or before March 15, 2017. Go to our website at www.sahmdr.org for further details.
