The Dublin Seminar for New England Folklife (founded 1976) is pleased to announce the subject of its forty-first conference, New England at Sea: Maritime Memory and Material Culture, to be held in Deerfield June 24-26, 2016.

The Seminar is now accepting proposals for papers, presentations, and workshops on the maritime history of New England and adjacent areas of New York and Canada from the seventeenth through the early twentieth century. The topic explores how the region remembered its maritime past.

Professional development points will be available for public school teachers. Selected papers will appear as the 2016 Annual Proceedings of the Dublin Seminar to be published about eighteen months after the conference.
