Call for Papers: WATERWAYS AND BYWAYS, 1600-1890, to be held in June 2009.

The Dublin Seminar for New England Folklife is accepting proposals for papers and presentations on the subject of early transportation networks operating within New England and contiguous portions of New York and Canada before 1890. Based on the premise that New England's everyday economy, much like its culture, depended on regional interconnectivity, this conference attempts to examine the physical, professional, and cultural networks that facilitated and encouraged this movement. Specifically, the conference seeks proposals on river and canal life, on tavern circuits, and on the rise of overland stagecoach routes.
