Proposals that address topics of interest to more than one of the target audiences will be given preference by the selection committee.

The 2016 NJ History and Historic Preservation Conference invites proposals from students (graduate and undergraduate) and emerging professionals for a Poster Session to be held at the annual conference.

The Poster Session is an opportunity to present work. Posters must engage subjects or projects related to historic preservation, history, archaeology, architecture, planning, museum studies, and/or public history. Submissions related to New Jersey subject matter are especially encouraged.
