America 250 at Penn: The Local Archive and the Semiquincentennial: A Forum
With the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence just three years away, many archives and museums are turning their attention to planning for the United States’ semiquincentennial. Philadelphia institutions are, unsurprisingly, at the forefront of this activity. This one-day forum is an opportunity for area repositories and historic institutions to learn about each other’s plans and establish connections as the planning continues. The event will include presentations from the American Philosophical Society’s Revolutionary City project and the DelCo250 consortium. In addition, there will be ample opportunity for informal networking and discussion and a lightening round in which participants can pitch ideas for collaboration.
This event will be held at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies.
