Encountering Others in the Atlantic World


New Sweden History Conference (NSHC), “Encountering ‘Others’ in the Atlantic World:  Perspectives from the Material World”

The conference will meet jointly with the annual meeting of the Council for Northeast Historical Archaeology (CNEHA), and NSHC registrants will be able to attend CNEHA sessions.  A special feature of this year’s NSHC is that it will have a transatlantic component—a similarly-themed conference at Lund University, in Lund, Sweden, that will meet on the same dates. Lund University sessions will be available to the audience at the University of Delaware in real time via videoconferencing.

In addition to the over 104 scheduled presentations at the University of Delaware on Saturday and Sunday, the conference will also include special tours of area sites, such as the ASHM and Historic Bartram’s Garden, Gloria Dei Old Swede’s Church and the sites of forts along the Delaware River. The weekend also includes a Friday reception and Saturday night banquet, as well as a roundtable luncheon and breakfast meeting.

This year’s conference is a part of the year-long celebrations of the 375th anniversary of the New Sweden Colony, which marked the first permanent European settlement in the Delaware Valley and existed in present-day southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware from 1638-1655. It is also a unique opportunity for the public to learn about current archaeological projects going on in our region.

Event price : $50 for affiliate members, $65 for non-members
