Interactions between Dutch, Anglo-Irish-Scots, Palatine German and Native American residents of the Mohawk Valley created a distinctive regional culture by 1775. Sir WIlliam Johnson, Philip Schuyler and Nicolas Herkimer influenced the development of the area by establishing ethnic variations of a European plantation system of landlords and tenant farmers producing for export markets. Scholarly papers will explore architecture, economics, domestic life and military experiences in the historic region west of Albany NY. All presentations are free, thanks to generosity of New York Council for the Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, but seating is limited and preregistration required. Presentations will be held November 19-20, 2005, at Fulton-Montgomery Community College, Johnstown NY. Additional symposium events carry a small fee. More information & registration forms available online.
