The Lackawanna Historical Society will host the 2017 PHA Annual Meeting from October 12 – 14, 2017. Conference sites will include the Catlin House, Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel, Heritage Room of the University of Scranton Library, and Steamtown National Historic Site. While proposals on all aspects of Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic history are encouraged, the program committee invites submissions on the theme, “Public Histories of the Mid- Atlantic,” which explores the many ways in which the public engages with the past.  Local Arrangements Chair Mary Ann Moran-Savakinus and Program Committee Chair Silad Chamberlin look forward to welcoming you to the conference.
