The American Numismatic Association released a schedule of talks for the convention's Numismatic Theatre. I won't repeat the complete list here, but I've picked a few that may be of particular interest to numismatic researchers, authors and E-Sylum readers in general. This is always one of my favorite parts of an ANA convention.
Numismatic Theatre, a popular feature of the American Numismatic Association’s convention education programs, has been finalized for the 2011 ANA Chicago World’s Fair of Money, Aug. 16-20. Numismatic Theatre consists of 30-40 minute presentations given by ANA members on a wide range of topics. Presentations will be held Aug. 16-17 and Aug. 19-20 in Room 3 of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.
