Archives to Welcome April 2020 Reynolda Conference
In mid-May 2019 Aimee Mepham, Assistant Director, Humanities Institute, Wake Forest University, issued this press release: “The Reynolda Conference convenes a small group of Wake Forest faculty and guest scholars to study an engaging, humanities-focused topic of their choice, over three to five days, including public programs. The conference is funded by an engaged humanities grant received by the university from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. We are very pleased to announce that the second and final Mellon-funded Reynolda Conference Grant has been awarded to Grant McAllister (German) and Ulrike Wiethaus (Department for the Study of Religions) for their proposal, “Becoming American: Moravians and their Neighbors, 1772-1822,” to be held in Spring 2020.” Moravian Archivist Eric Elliott will continue his working with these Wake professors and the new Moravian Studies Collaborative to plan the public and academic portions of this event, which will be held April 15-18, 2020. Stay tuned for more information as it develops.
