The theme of this year's conference is, "Looking for Truth in America's Historic Places." As “living historians,” we choose our topics and investigate our sources to weed out fact from fiction. One way to do this is by sticking primarily to our primary sources. However, artificial intelligence today is making it harder to distinguish between what is real or false in this day and age. Succeeding generations will be using it more and more. Therefore, since artificial intelligence is here to stay, can it be used with living history to reach the new generation? How can it be used in the future to interpret history accurately?
The Arkansas Living History Association and the Southeast section of the Association of the Living History, Farm, and Agricultural Museums seeks proposals for workshops, sessions, panels, and presentations for the 2024 Conference in Washington, Arkansas. This conference will look at the different ways Living History educates our visitors about the past in the present. To submit a proposal, please fill out the form on the back. Attach additional sheets if necessary. Submissions will be accepted by mail, email, or fax. All presenters are expected to register for the full meeting or the day on which they present.
Deadline for submitting proposals is November 30, 2023
