Dublin Seminar 2024 – Into the Woods: New England Forests in Fact and Imagination

Taking place in person and on Zoom

The Dublin Seminar for New England Folklife (founded in 1976) is pleased to announce Into the Woods: New England Forests in Fact and Imagination, to be held June 28-29, 2024. The annual Dublin Seminar is a meeting place where scholars of all kinds—academics, students, museum and library professionals, artisans and craftspeople, educators, preservationists, and committed avocational researchers—join in deep conversation around a focused theme in New England history, pooling their knowledge and exchanging ideas, sources, and methods in a thought-provoking forum. This year’s program will address the rich and varied histories of the relationship between the peoples of New England and adjacent areas and their forests. The seminar will explore the economic, cultural, and social significance of trees and forests in New England history; anyone interested in parks and conservation, visual and literary representations of wooded landscapes, indigenous relationships with forests, wood-dependent industries, and folklore involving New England’s woods and forests will find plenty of interest in this two-day program.
