CFP: Archives 2.0
The National Media Museum is hosting a 2 day conference on the challenges and opportunities around the acquisition and management of archives by cultural institutions from 25 – 26 November 2014.
Such archives may be still, moving or mixed-format; analogue or digital or both; they may be from a company, private, practitioner, virtual, community-based or regional; complete or partial; contained or continually developing.
The conference will examine emergent digital technologies and their impact on archival practice and acquisition.
Papers are sought on the strategic issues, opportunities and challenges presented by organisations that actively acquire and curate bodies of work.
We are looking for perspectives from:
- Practitioners and photographers
- Curators and cultural institutions
- Galleries and commercial enterprises
- Technology providers and facilitators
For further details and to submit a paper, see the National Media Museum website.
Contributions that evidence new approaches and/or creative and innovative ways of thinking which challenge conventional understanding are particularly welcome.
