Mysteries of Northern New England, 14-16 June 2007

Late this spring the Washburn Humanities Center, in association with the University of Maine at Farmington, will host a conference on Mysteries of Northern New England—“people, places, events, stories, and legends that have attracted curiosity and speculation, but which may have defied explanation or a solution.”

The conference will be held 14-16 June 2007 at the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore, Maine. The organizers say they’re “seeking the participation of both professional and lay scholars and students from across the spectrum of academic disciplines.” That starts with a call for original papers, or complete two- or three-paper sessions, on appropriate topics. Submit a 150-word abstract of one’s paper and a one-page curriculum vitae by 1 April 2007 to:

Billie Gammon
42 Hathaway Hill Road
Livermore, ME 04253
For questions, contact Rob Lively, Dean of Arts & Sciences at the Farmington campus.
