TAGS Conference Posterhe Association for Gravestone Studies is excited to share initial details about the 2022 conference.

AGS Hybrid Conference and Annual Meeting
June 9th - June 19th, 2022
Beverly, Massachusetts

In the hopes of engaging members near and far, the 2022 conference will follow a hybrid model, allowing for attendees to participate virtually only or virtually & in person. The conference will commence on Thursday, June 9th with evening paper sessions and continue on the evening of Friday, June 10th with additional paper sessions.

We will also gather virtually on Saturday, June 11th for papers, workshops, and roundtables, including the preservation workshop classroom session. There will then be a break until Wednesday, June 15th when we invite members to join us in person at Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts for the remainder of the conference.

conference program 2022June 15th through June 19th will look similar to normal AGS in-person conferences where we will partake in field trips, sessions, host the Annual Meeting, and gather for the Awards Ceremony, but with the added bonus that our virtual-only attendees will be able to also participate in many of the activities that will take place in-person. Each room at Endicott College is equipped with the technology needed to live broadcast the sessions and workshops taking place in person, and we are planning to have some live video feeds from our field trips as well. The conference will wrap up on June 19th.
