University Musuems Group – 2018 conference
Museum of Zoology, Cambridge
Tuesday 3 July 2018
The theme of the University Museums Group’s 2018 conference is ‘Foreign exchange: University museums and international engagement’.
The organising group welcomes proposals for ‘lightning talks’, for 8 minute presentations, which will be presented in two panel sessions of case studies. Each should outline a particular international project, drawing attention to wider issues arising from its development, realisation and/or legacy. Proposals which draw attention to opportunities, but also frankly acknowledge challenges are welcome.
The conference organisers anticipate selecting 5-6 proposals for presentation during the afternoon at the conference in Cambridge. Please be aware that they will seek a representative range of speakers, in terms of disciplines, and smaller and larger museums: we regret that it is unlikely that every good proposal can be included.
Deadline for submissions: Friday 1 June
Please forward abstracts to: Nicola Kalinsky, firstname.lastname@example.org
