You ask a good question. I’m not sure that it costs anything to just attend and listen in–there were people who did that when I did the same seminar in 2009. But I’m sure there will be details posted once they’ve selected the participants and got the program all set, probably sometime in the early spring of 2009.

Since it’s a conference with precirculated papers, I’m not sure that anyone but conference participants has access to the papers, but I may well be very wrong about that.

Dunno when I’ll be in Pasadena again, but I’ll try it.

Well remembered, Susan. They have a shuttle that will take you over to the Huntington on a moment’s notice, and take you back to the hotel at the end of the day!

I think CPP is thinking of Mi Piace, in Old Town. Walking distance from the Westin, where the HEH put me up the last time I did something for them.

One was a great two-room Italian place, and I also remember this awesome tavern-type place with an old-style barroom and also a regular dining room.

It was extremely comfortable, with a rooftop pool and exercise room.

I’m usually more of a No-Tel Motel kind of gal, so I appreciate the luxury when I can git it.

It’s been repurposed into a pretty ritzy condominium type venue, I think. I took a house tour there once, and wow, you wouldn’t want to come back!

The first image is of a Western Abenaki woman produced in the 18th C. The second is a painting is a post-mortem portrait of Margurite Bourgeoys (1620-1700), a nun of the Congregation de Notre Dame in Montreal, by Pierre LeBer (1700), and the last is a portrait of the Moravian Protten Family by Johann Valentin Haidt (1751). (More information here.) It’s interesting because although the child’s skin is whitened beyond belief, she’s painted with her hand in the “preaching position”–something we never see with girl children, let alone girl children of African descent.

The Prottens were Christian Protten (1715-1769), an Afro-Dane Moravian missionary, his wife, a former slave from St. Thomas and also a missionary, Rebecca (1718-1780) with baby Anna Maria. If I recall correctly, neither this baby nor a previous child of hers (by a previous marriage) survived. (More information here.) I don’t have my copy of the book, but I learned about Rebecca Protten through Jon Sensbach’s fine biographical study, Rebecca’s Revival: Creating Black Christianity in the Atlantic World (2005). (I may have misremembered some of the details about her husbands and children.)

I didn’t realize this until looking up Bourgeoys’s dates that she was Canada’s first woman saint! (Beatified by JPII in 1982).
