Call for Papers: Out of the Box – Practical Approaches to Archival Exhibition

Day 1- The Conservation Aspect  – 31st July 2015 – University of Edinburgh

Day 2- The Archive Aspect – 07th August 2015 – Museum on the Mound/National Records of Scotland

ARA Scotland are holding a conference on all aspects of the exhibition of archives. Archives have a life beyond the reading room – both physically as items in display cases and virtually as online resources. The ways in which Archivists can showcase their treasures to the world are limitless and this conference aims to provide a platform for discussion around the issues raised by Archival exhibitions.

We are inviting submissions from archivists, conservators and curators of individual papers, panels and hands-on practical sessions relating to theoretical approaches to the exhibition of archives; case studies of successful exhibitions; and practical issues relating to the display of material.

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and should be sent to Karyn Williamson at by 20th May 2015. For more information please contact Karyn at the email address above or on 01312452159.
