Call for Papers: National Programmes Conference, British Museum

The British Museum’s National Programmes team have announced a Call for Papers for the upcoming National Programmes
Conference on 4th November 2019.

This year the event will include a day of scheduled workshops, discussion and debate on the theme of equality and diversity in museum practice across the UK, highlighting issues of representation, authority and power with a particular focus on disability, class, gender, race and sexuality. The event aims to provide a platform for colleagues to share their work, experiences, and research, and to explore ideas relating to museum practice and how UK museums can address their own histories and those of their communities.

Contributions are being sought from across the cultural heritage sector to provide critical and reflective papers, case studies, and workshops. Topics are intended to be as widely representative of museum work as possible, and may include varied approaches to collecting, collections research, object display and interpretation, public engagement, and workforce diversity.

The deadline for abstracts is 5th June 2019. Further information about the event and how to submit can be found on the British Museum website National Programmes Conference page.
