    the season's greetings

    with Tom Reitz

    Break open the eggnog and rum. Pour yourself a mug of mulled wine. Or toast some marshmallows for on top of your hot chocolate! ALHFAM member Tom Reitz will share images from his collection of photographic postcards, showing Christmas celebrations in people’s homes, churches and schools decorated for the holidays in the early 1900s.  

    (And as requested at our virtual get together in September, Tom will ensure that there will be plenty of fun images, but he says that you’re on your own for cookies and fruitcake!)

    Call for Proposals: Southeastern Region Conference

    Not a Keyhole, but a Doorway:” A Dialogue on Inclusivity and Interpreting to Every Person

    Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia, Staunton, Virginia

    Feb. 26, 27, 28, 2021


    Deadline for proposal submission is December 19, 2020

    The Southeast Region of the Association for Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums (SEALHFAM) seeks proposals for workshops, sessions, panels, and presentations for the 2021 Conference at the Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia.

    Diversity is a fact; inclusion is an act. Recent national data indicates that museums are the most trusted of institutions, but are we doing enough to remain worthy of that trust and to maintain that trust? While our field has made great strides toward inclusivity, more can be done. You are invited to share how you or your site has opened doors through which all visitors can find themselves in their respective pasts.

    While interaction is the hallmark of the living history museum experience, proposals for workshops, sessions, panels, and traditional presentations often reflect living history museums’ emphasis on the tactile and the tangible. The recent spike of COVID19 cases in Virginia and throughout the Southeast Region has necessitated the need for a totally virtual conference. So, anything goes, from academic presentations, to panel discussions, to screens- on workshops, and everything in between. Please feel free to discuss your virtual ideas with us!

    To submit a proposal, please complete the form below. Attachments are welcome. Submissions will be accepted by mail or email. All presenters are expected to register for the full meeting or for the day on which they present. We can’t wait to include you!

    2021 Annual Meeting & Conference

    Looking Forward . . . The Next 50 Years

    June 11-14, 2021
    Sauder Village, Archbold, Ohio

    If we could gaze into our communal crystal ball, what would we see? What will the future bring living history, farm and agricultural museums, and how can we begin to prepare for that now? What issues and opportunities has the COVID-19 pandemic underscored and the protests for equity brought to the forefront? What kind of foundation are we building? What best practice methodologies are arising from within our own living history field that are robust, durable, and enduring? What strategies for success are we bringing—or can we borrow—from outside our field to ensure our relevance and sustainability?

    The theme of the 2021 ALHFAM conference is about the future of living history. We can’t predict it. But we can be open to it. We can prepare for it. We can be flexible, adaptable, and resilient to change as it will inevitably occur. Because 50 years from now, we want to be not just surviving but thriving. We want to be critical to how people see themselves, their communities, and their world. And we can start today!



    You may select to present virtually only, in-person and virtually, or in-person only.
