Commemoration, Preservation, and Education:
“The Things That We Do”

Louisiana State University Rural Life Museum
Baton Rouge, Louisiana ~ June 12 through 16, 2016

Since the beginning Louisiana has been different from the rest of the United States and to this day Louisianans perceive themselves as unique. And why not? We are the only state whose law is based upon the Napoleonic Code, which has parishes instead of counties, police juries, levee boards, and where the French language is freely spoken. We were first settled by the French and Spanish, then came the Germans, Acadians, English, Scots and the Islenos. Later the Americans, Hungarians, Irish, and Italians came to settle here. Thousands of African slaves were brought into Louisiana as early as 1710. All of these cultures melted together to create a unique people. Louisiana is truly a place of cultural diversity. On behalf of Louisiana State University and its Rural Life Museum, we are delighted to invite you to Baton Rouge for the 2016 Association of Living History, Farms, and Agricultural Museum’s Annual Conference. “Commemoration, Preservation, Education” is a catch-phrase that captures the essence of the mission of ALHFAM as well our individual museums. These are the things we do as museum professionals every day. This Conference will bring together directors, curators, interpreters, researchers and educators from around the world who are engaged in the commemoration, education, and preservation of our past.

At our 2016 Annual Meeting and Conference, ALHFAM invites members to discuss these three concepts as they pertain to our individual sites and the museum community as a whole. Proposals for papers, presentations, posters and workshops will now be accepted until
January 15, 2016.

Please send your proposals to the LSU Rural Life Museum, P.O. Box 80498, Baton Rouge, LA. 70898 or email to dfloyd@lsu.edu.
