Beyond the Presidency: Historical Context and Modern Reality
Presidential Sites and Library Conference VI
June 2-5, 2014
Clinton Presidential Center, Little Rock, Arkansas
Featuring a Keynote Address by President Bill Clinton
42nd President of the United States and Founder, Clinton Foundation
Presidential sites are the memory keepers of each presidency. They remind us of the best each of these Presidents had to offer in leadership, character, and service. But should they offer only a snapshot in history? In this time continuum, how do sites manage the centrifugal forces of historical context and ever evolving modern reality to shape how they present the history of the time and offer lessons in leadership, character, and service?
The Presidential Sites and Library Conference is a national conference held every four years and is hosted at a site with connections to the American presidency and includes attendees representing institutions from all regions of the country and from across the spectrum of the historical profession.
Registration includes three evening events, two lunches, all breakout and general sessions, and onsite visit to Central High School.
Sponsored by AASLH, The White House Historical Association, the Clinton Foundation, the Miller Center for Public Affairs, and the National Park Service.
