Are you working on a knotty-yet-fascinating piece of historical deduction? A messy-but-exciting piece of experimental archeaology? Do you want to show off all the amazing ways your process has surprised you?

On October 25th, 2014, the Barony of Carolingia will host an Arts and Sciences Colloquium and Poster Session at the First Parish Unitarian-Universalist Church, located at 75 The Great Road in Bedford, MA.  The day is intended to provide a forum for arts and sciences researchers to gather together and share what they are learning, using all the useful tools for knowledge transfer that are available in a modern, conference-style setting.

This is an day to talk about your process, your surprising discoveries, your successes and even more importantly your fruitful and instructive failures. There is no competition and no judging – the day is designed around pure knowledge transfer.

The day will have lecture-style presentations with question and answer periods, a poster session, a reference consulting table (with book petting zoo!), and lounge space for kibitzing and further exploration of topics that catch your interest.

If you are interested in presenting, either as a lecturer or a poster contributor, or serving as a reference consultant, or if you have any questions at all! – please contact us at molly.eskridge@gmail.com.

Because this is structured as a modern conference-style event, the day will be in modern dress. There will be no court and no feast, but coffee will be available all day and a lunch is available for a separate fee. There is ample space for attendees to bring their own lunch, and there are several nearby purveyors of food of various types.
