The Fifth Planter Studies Conference examines the development of New England Planter communities in the Maritime region of Canada following their arrival beginning in 1760. The conference runs from June 17th to 20th and features papers on childhood and family, music, religion, slavery, the Royal Navy, dykeland farming, imperial politics and warfare, and New England Planter relations with other ethnic groups in the colony of Nova Scotia. The Atlantic Living Heritage Association is organizing re-enactors to create a late-18th-century civilian encampment. Guided tours of local heritage sites will also be offered. Conference fees are waived for students with a valid university ID. For more information, please see our website: http://libguides.acadiau.ca/Planter.
