New Moravian Studies Collaborative Formed

First meeting of the group at Moravian Archives on November 5, 2018
On November 5 representatives from Forsyth colleges and universities and from local Moravian records-keepers at the Moravian Archives, Old Salem and MESDA met to form a new Moravian Studies Collaborative. We formed three working groups out of our first meeting: 1) Cherokee Studies/Trail of Tears Witness Community work for next spring; 2) organizing a conference of Moravian studies on “Becoming American” with grant applications going out starting in February; and 3) expanding what we as a local Moravian Studies Collaborative could do beyond emailing/sharing information and occasional gatherings. We will be sharing community events from the group through our e-mail newsletter and our website here as we receive them.
