A chance to share information from academic research to family histories, this international conference marks the beginning of a more comprehensive approach towards documenting the history and culture of Creoles. The call is for papers on any aspect of Creole culture, including (but not limited to) history, language, art, literature, music, folklore and cuisine.
In addition, an opportunity for all researchers to present their information in an exhibit setting has been arranged. The primary goal of the exhibit hall will be to facilitate networking and the sharing of data sources and research among scholars, organizations and family historians involved with Creole studies and related topics. The Exhibit Hall and its contents will be free and open to the public from October 24-25. Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Exhibits sought (but are not limited to) include:
Books, journals, pamphlets, catalogs, multimedia products or services associated with all aspects of the conference theme
Informational displays depicting the Creole people and culture, including (but not limite to) history, art, literature, music, genealogy, language, architecture, folklore, foodways, and documentation and preservation
Photographic presentations on all aspects of the conference theme
Creole family histories, copies of family papers and documents, pedigree charts, maps, etc.
Technology innovations in research and documentation, material preservation, archiving and genealogy efforts
