The Dublin Seminar for New England Folklife and Historic Deerfield, Inc., wish to thank the New England Culinary Institute and CISA (Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture) for their promotional support. Special thanks to Lamson & Goodnow for their contribution to the Seminar.
The Dublin Seminar for New England Folklife is a continuing series of conferences, exhibitions, and publications whose purpose is to explore everyday life, work, and culture in New England’s past. Founded on the premise that traditional lore and material folk culture are rapidly disappearing in New England, the series focuses attention on emerging areas of folk studies, regional and local history, cultural geography, historical archaeology, and vernacular and antiquarian studies. Conferences are held in June or July of each year with concurrent exhibitions at participating museums and art galleries. Dublin Seminar conferences are sponsored by Historic Deerfield.
Topics are announced at the conference of the preceding year. Selected and edited transcripts of papers presented at Dublin Seminar conferences are published each year as the Annual Proceedings.Catalogues of exhibitions accompanying Dublin Seminar conferences are published separately.
The most recent Dublin Seminar conference, “The Irish in New England,” was held at Deerfield June 22 to 24, 2012.
Publications for Sale:
Seminar Proceedings, exhibition catalogues, and occasional publications generated by conferences held from 1976 through 2007 are available.
