Shaker Seminar is a forum for sharing enlightening research related to the Shakers and their history, material culture, arts and music, as well as broader topics of utopian and intentional communities. Past presentations include African American Shakers, the Shaker West, Shaker correspondence with other communities, the impact of the railroads on Shaker life, impressions of Shakers in popular culture, and Shaker archaeological finds.
Presentations often employ original research, and primary or underused resources, and are often facilitated by Power Point.
This year’s seminar will be held at Pleasant Hill Shaker Village in Kentucky, http://shakervillageky.org/
