The goal of the symposium is to broaden public awareness of the rich plantation history of Northeast Florida, dating back to the British Colonial period. The symposium is also a venue to encourage further research about this often over-looked period of Florida history.
Held in the University of Central Florida Daytona Beach Branch Campus Auditorium, the Saturday sessions will begin at 8:00 a.m. with registration. The morning papers will focus on the economic systems, the social dynamics, and the historical context of the plantations that date back to the 1760s. The afternoon session will focus on recent research and new directions to Northeast Florida Plantations research. A buffet banquet will be held at Indigo Lakes starting at 6:00 with a social hour. A roundtable discussion concerning the future of plantation research will be a part of the banquet program. Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, bus tours will visit selected plantation sites.
