October 13, 2020

The Jefferson Scholars Foundation invites you to join us for the 2020 Forum for Interdisciplinary Dialogue. Designed and organized by Scot McFarlane, the current Birdsall National Fellow, this interdisciplinary conference will bring together scholars, authors, public historians, and community and environmental activists across a wide range of fields to explore the ways in which both rivers and their residents remember history through three interrelated themes–Slavery and Freedom, Indigenous Resistance, and Environmentalism.
