41st annual Shaker Seminar
Shaker Seminar is a multi-day program of enlightening lectures related to Shaker history, material culture, and arts and music. Held at a different Shaker site each summer, the seminar provides the opportunity to explore a variety of topics. Past presentations include talks on utopian and intentional communities, African American Shakers, the Shaker West, Shaker government structure, correspondence among Shaker communities, the impact of the railroads on Shaker life, adoption of children, impressions of Shakers in popular culture, archaeological finds and their consequences, and many others.
Shaker Seminar encourages attendees to sell or trade books, artifacts, T-shirts, and other Shaker-related items — a great way to trade rare or obscure materials.
Lodging and meals will be at Pleasant Hill in the lovely historic buildings. At South Union we will be staying at the Holiday Inn/University Plaza in nearby Bowling Green, and most meals and presentations will take place at the Shaker Tavern or within the historic village.
