On October 5 and 6 2018,  the Communal Studies Association had their national conference in Bishop Hill, IL.  Hosted by the BHHA, this conference brought together scholars from all over the nation together to discuss and share the history of communal societies, past and present. At the same time, conference participants were able to learn more about the Bishop Hill Colony.  Photographs of the 2018 CSA Conference can be seen at our photo gallery at https://bishophillheritage.org/csa-conference-in-bishop-hill-october-5-and-6-2018/
