The Inclusive Museum Conference 2012

Share

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.

Participants are invited to submit a proposal for an in-person paper presentation, workshop/interactive session, or a jointly presented colloquium.

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.

If you would like to know more about this Conference, bookmark the Inclusive Museum Conference site and return for further information – the site is regularly updated.

You may also wish to subscribe to the Conference and Journal Newsletter.

The 2012 Conference coincides with the 2012 Crop Over Festival.

For Barbadians and visitors who have joined in the summer festival known as Crop Over, there is nothing to compare with the experiences.

That is why this one of a kind feeling is described as ‘The Sweetest Summer Festival”.

 

For all inquiries, please contact the Conference secretariat.

 

 

The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum

Conference participants can submit papers to the Inclusive Museum Journal, before the Conference and up until one month after the Conference.

Papers submitted for publication will be fully refereed. The publication decision is based on the referees’ reports.
