The 29th annual Communal Studies Association Conference will be held at the site of the historic Oneida community, a Perfectionist community that practiced their beliefs between 1848-1880 under the leadership of John Humphrey Noyes.
The conference will be attended by academics, museum and historic site staff, members of intentional communities, and others with interest in communal societies. The conference will include panel discussions on a variety of topics related to historic and present day communal groups, as well as tours of the Oneida Community historic site, plenary sessions with featured speakers, bookstore, group meals, a communal auction, and plenty of opportunity for informal socializing.
This is a relatively small, informal conference that provides wonderful opportunities for learning about communal societies and meeting others with common interests.
The deadline for abstracts/proposals was 15 March 2002, although late submissions may be considered.
Enquiries: Don Janzen, Executive Secretary of the Communal Studies Association at the email address below.
