With co-creation and collaboration in mind, we now invite proposals for ‘History and Archives in Practice, 2024’ on this theme.
We welcome submissions from historians, archivists, and heritage organisations alike. We are particularly keen to highlight and support smaller organisations, underrepresented collections, and marginalised voices as well as new and emerging research.
Please submit an abstract (300 words) by Friday 15 December 2023 using this form.
'History and Archives in Practice’ encourages a wide range of formats that best showcase a collection and the experience/lessons of collaborative working between archivists and historians on shared projects. Suggested formats include:
- 20-minute papers
- Interactive workshops
- Full panels on a chosen topic (3-4 speakers with chair, 15-20 minutes per speaker)
- Introductions to specific collections and their potential for historical research
- Demonstration and handling sessions, introducing attendees to selected items from your collections, and their potential in research
- Other proposals and formats for communicating activity, experience and research are also welcome as we look to move on from traditional conference models
