Chesapeake Studies Conference 2023 @ Salisbury University

Chesapeake Studies: Bringing Communities Together

September 15-16, 2023
Salisbury University, Salisbury, Maryland

The Chesapeake Studies conference is an interdisciplinary, scholarly exploration of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and the Delmarva region. Sponsored by Salisbury University and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, the conference brings together scholars, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, students, and interested non-academics from diverse disciplinary perspectives, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and the arts. This continuing series of conferences intends to promote communication between professionals and scholars working in disciplines and offices that do not often interact and to enrich the scholarly study of the region.

PLEASE NOTE: Our intention is that this will be largely a face-to-face conference. We believe that face-to-face is important, because of our goals to bring together people from disparate fields and professions and to promote Chesapeake Studies as, essentially, a new interdisciplinary field. Nonetheless, in order to allow participation from people interested in the Chesapeake but unable to attend in person, the keynote panels and possibly other sessions will be available via streaming online (registration required).
