I Am Keeping an Eye on Two Conferences Today

I love that Twitter allows us to follow--in a limited way (there's nothing like actually being there!)--what is going on at conferences that we are unable to attend.  I will bel keeping an eye on two such conferences today.

First, at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, scholars in the humanities from church-related schools are meeting at the 25th Annual Conference of the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts (Valparaiso University).  I have been following the action at #lfp2015

Second, in Philadelphia, the McNeil Center for Early American Studies (University of Pennsylvania) graduate student conference is taking place.  The title of the conference is Bustle and Stir: Movement and Exchange in Early America.  You can follow the action at #bustleandstir

If you are interested in both conferences, I will try to do some retweeting @johnfea1 Follow along!

ADDENDUM:  I just learned about another conference going on today: Public Universities, the Humanities, and Education in North Carolina.  Very interesting tweets have been coming out of this conference @unchumanities and #unchumanities
