The 2015 Conference on New York State History will be held on the Niagara University campus on June 18-20, offering something for everyone with an interest in New York State history.

Conference sessions are scheduled at the Castellani Art Museum and St. Vincent’s Hall. In addition to presentations featuring the latest scholarship by state and nationally based historians, speakers will be highlighting the Niagara campus’s close relationship with its surrounding community and its commitment to regional history and heritage tourism.

The three-day program will feature presentations by more than 100 speakers addressing a wide range of topics such as the most up-to-date professional research on Haudenosaunee culture, Hudson River School artists, and new partnerships among libraries, schools, and historical organizations.

“New York State’s history community is extremely diverse – from scholars and teachers, to museum and archives professionals, and history buffs of every description,” said New York State Historian Robert Weible, who chaired the committee that organized the conference. “And the New York State Museum, a program of the State Education Department, is committed to educating New Yorkers about the state’s rich history. We’re proud to be a supporter of the 36th Conference on New York State History.”
