Newman Portal Symposium Takes Place November 2-4
The Newman Portal Symposium returns this week with a series of online presentations scheduled for November 2-4. This is our seventh event, having initially launched in fall 2020 in response to the pandemic. Our feature presentation, at 11AM Eastern on Friday, November 3, will include the premier of a video on United States coins in the American Numismatic Association Museum in Colorado Springs, CO, followed by Q&A with ANA Curator Doug Mudd.
In other sessions, Professor Dror Goldberg of the Open University of Israel will talk about his new book, Easy Money: American Puritans and the Invention of Modern Currency (University of Chicago Press, 2023), while Mark Borckardt will be speaking on the history of the Early American Coppers club. Our own Lianna Spurrier, NNP Symposium Producer, will discuss Japanese bar money, covering the Edo Period to the Meiji Restoration. A full schedule is available on the Symposium website.
