Call for Papers: conference 2018

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, n.kalinsky@bham.ac.uk
