KATH Annual Meeting 2012
Saturday, Jan 15 at duPont Manual High School, Louisville
Friday Night Reception at Filson Historical Society
Looking forward to seeing you at the KATH conference in Louisville on September 14 and 15! Check out the wonderful agenda at http://www.kath-online.org/annual-meeting – featuring Dr. George C. Herring who will kick off the conference theme centering on the War of 1812. With hearty thanks to the generous spirit of those historians who helped organize this year’s conference as well as our sponsors who made this all possible: the Kentucky Humanities Council, and the history department chairs at Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and the University of Kentucky.
Bring your colleagues, students and your favorite history buff. This conference will have plenty of good ideas to think about, lots of interaction and new friends to meet. We will gather at the Filson Historical Society on Friday evening to meet the conference speakers and tour the FHS exhibits. The next morning participants be greeted by the award-winning History Club students of DuPont Manual High School, have an opportunity to buy some wonderful history books from the University Press of Kentucky, and get Dr. Herring (and other favorite authors) to autograph a book or two. The Phi Alpha Theta history honor society of Campbellsville University are also planning to organize an exhibit for us. After a rousing debate on the impact and meaning of the War of 1812, we will eat lunch and listen to a living history performance by Harry Smith, a Kentucky Humanities Council Chautauqua character playing a militiaman from Kentucky during the War of 1812. After that, we vote for the new KATH Board for 2013-14 (see the call for Board members at http://kath-online.org/2012/06/30/call-for-board-members)and celebrate the KATH student writing award-winners (http://kath-online.org/writing-awards). To end the day in a reflective moment about the past and future of history education in Kentucky, take a tour of the historic Halleck Hall with our wonderful host, duPont Manual social studies teacher extraordinaire, Allison Hunt.
