UNIVERSEUM NETWORK MEETING
University Heritage: Present and Future
University of Uppsala, Sweden, 17-20 June 2010
SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
The European Academic Heritage Network UNIVERSEUM would like to announce its 11th annual meeting. UNIVERSEUM invites submissions of papers devoted to academic heritage in its broadest sense, tangible and intangible, namely the preservation, study, access and promotion of university collections, museums, archives, libraries, and buildings of historical and scientific significance.
Graduate students are especially encouraged to attend.
The main theme of the conference is ‘University Heritage: Present and Future’, however papers on other topics are welcomed too.
‘University Heritage: Present and Future’
Academic heritage institutions’ traditional roles are collecting, preservation, research and teaching. Increasingly, they are expected to develop public programs and exhibitions as well as to assume a stronger role in marketing their university’s identity. These roles can pose considerable challenges. How can we position ourselves within the growing constraints of generating external funding, creating new audiences and keeping our institutions’ identity?
Presentations are limited to 20 minutes, including 5 minutes for discussion.
Please send proposals of no more than 200 words (use the abstract template)
to the email address below before 15 March 2010.
Include a short biography highlighting main research interests (no more than 50 words).
Proposals will be reviewed by Universeum 2010 Programme Committee.
