This Conference is to be held at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados, from 2 to 5 August 2012.
The Inclusive Museum Conference is held annually in different locations around the world. The inaugural Conference was held at the National Museum of Ethnology, Leiden, the Netherlands in 2008, the Second International Conference on the Inclusive Museum was held at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in 2009, the 2010 Conference was held at Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul, Turkey, and the 2011 Conference was held at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in museum studies and leading practitioners, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.
Our community members and first time attendees come from all corners of the globe.
The Conference is a site of critical reflection, both by leaders in the field and emerging scholars and practioners.
Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream also has its own talking circle, a forum for focused discussion of issues.
For those unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual participation is also available.
Presenters may choose to submit written papers to The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum, a fully refereed academic Journal. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the Journal.
All registered Conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the Journal. This subscription is valid until one year after the Conference end date.
