Save the Date: Fall 2024 Virtual Conference

November 13-15, 2024

Call for Proposals

 The Program Committee for the Fall 2024 Virtual Meeting is formally opening the call for proposals. Inspired by ongoing commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance, the theme is “Renaissance & Renewal.” The Program Committee invites session proposals that celebrate and explore creativity, advocacy, versatility, and innovation in archival work. Potential session topics might include:

  • Emerging technologies (AI, VR) or using technology to look at collections in new ways (data sets, digital humanities projects)
  • Career reinvention, pivots, skills development, or reconfigured responsibilities
  • Initiatives to highlight overlooked or underrepresented voices
  • New perspectives on community engagement, partnerships, audiences, and stakeholders

The Program Committee is committed to incorporating diverse perspectives within the program and across the entire conference. Session proposals should reflect varied personal and professional experiences, including individual, institutional, and geographic diversity. The Program Committee is also interested in supporting a range of session types, including panel presentation or discussions, lightning talks, mini-workshops, case studies, and birds of a feather. 

Any questions, please contact the Program Committee co-chairs, Megan Craynon ([email protected]) and Hillary Kativa ([email protected]). 

Please submit proposals via the submission formProposals are due Monday, June 24, 2024.
