Henry Glassie at the National Preservation Conference and a Sneak Peek

Posted on: October 29th, 2013 by Preservation Leadership Forum Staff

Tomorrow during the Opening Plenary attendees will have the honor of listening to Henry Glassie speak. As a Professor Emeritus of Folklore at Indiana University, Glassie invites us to reconsider the vernacular, using the Hoosier landscape as his touchstone.

If you haven't had a chance yet check out this speech he gave at the The 2011 Charles Homer Haskins Prize Lecture which was presented at the American Council of Learned Societies Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on May 6, 2011.

The Opening Plenary will be live streaming at www.preservationnation.org/conference. It takes place at the Hilbert Circle Theatre from 5-7pm on Wednesday, October 30.

He will be available to sign books at the opening reception at the Athenaeum following the plenary.

While the conference officially kicks off with the plenary tomorrow we wanted to also give you taste of how #PresConf attendees have been prepping for this week.
