Call for papers Conference 2021 «Mod Cons: Modern Conservation. Modern Constraints. Modern Conveniences», Deadline 31 Jan 2021
Categoría: Actividades de Investigación
The Icon Book & Paper Group is excited to announce the 2021 Conference Mod Cons: Modern Conservation. Modern Constraints. Modern Conveniences. The conference will be completely online in response to environmental, accessibility and health priorities. Mod Cons will run over 4 afternoon sessions from 4 – 7 October 2021.
The conference offers an opportunity to share and exchange ideas demonstrating how we are constantly required to evolve within the Book and Paper specialism. We bring conservation forward with modern advocacy and solving current issues. How are sustainable environmental decisions incorporated into our work? How are we addressing the lack of diversity working on a material that holds such diverse history and cultures? What new tools, techniques and treatments have been adapted or introduced to the field? How is Book and Paper conservation merging with digital solutions to improve access and efficiency in workflows?
The conference aims to host a diverse and global selection of speakers including emerging professionals, freelance conservators, conservation scientists, craftsmen, education heads and parallel professionals. The B&P Group also invites ideas for online workshops or demonstrations.
Abstracts are invited for 20 minute presentations on all aspects of conservation relevant to the theme, including scientific studies and PhD research.
The deadline is 31st of January 2021.
