This year’s Conference will focus on the Underground Railroad during the Civil War, exploring resistance to enslavement through escape and flight during this tumultuous period of the nation’s history. As the battle over whether the nation should accept or abolish slavery waged on, people continued to fight against the institution of slavery. The Underground Railroad continued to play an important role, as shown by the continual enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act during the war. It was not until the 13th Amendment eliminated “slavery and involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime” that the need for the Underground Railroad ultimately ended.

Dear Directors and Curators,
The National Museum of Agriculture and Food Industry in Szreniawa, Poland, cordially invites you to take part in an International Conference on “Living Animals in Museums Activity”, which is going to be held at the Museum on 4th and 5th October 2013.
The conference is co-organized with the International Association of Museums of Agriculture (AIMA), as well as Technology and Life Sciences Institute in Poznań, University of Life Sciences in Poznań and Polish Association of Working Horse Users and Friends. The aim of the Conference is to create a forum of experience exchange in the field of keeping and breeding of animals in museums and parks, as well as conditions of their keeping and use in education, taking under consideration law regulations on animal welfare and visitors’ safety.
We would like to focus particularly on the six themes below, on which you can prepare your papers (full- or half-time):
- The role of museums in transmission and popularization of tangible and intangible heritage, both of culture and nature, related to the keeping and breeding of animals.
- Museums in the service of working animals as green energy. The use of working animals (along with traditional techniques and implements) in the reality of nowadays.
- Behavioral predispositions of animals vs visitor security and the very animal security.
- Conditions of presentation and keeping for particular groups of farm animals. Law regulations on animal welfare vs traditional methods of animal keeping and care.
- Forms of education with the use of living animals for visitor age groups (e.g. demonstration of milking a cow for schoolchildren, sheep shearing, traditional feeding and care of animals, teams of working oxen and horses at work etc.)
- Practical, as well as economic and commercial aspects of animal keeping – production and commercial distribution of animal products, sanitary requirements etc.
We look forward to welcoming you at our Museum at what we hope to be a successful and fruitful gathering.
