The 19th annual Allied Media Conference will host a “Radical Libraries, Archives, and Museums Track” at its June conference, and is looking for session submissions. From the conference website:
We are especially interested in sessions that:
- Challenge traditional gallery, library, archive, and museum structures, institutions, and organizations
- Discuss best practices for community-based organizations that provide books, technology or internet access, creative materials, or collaborative opportunities centering people of color, queer and gender nonconforming folks, disabled people, incarcerated people, and undocumented people
- Consider the role of librarians, archivists, and curators in strengthening the knowledge, culture, and collective memory of communities impacted by social and economic disparity and state-sanctioned violence
- Address racism, white supremacy, and issues of inclusion in galleries, libraries, archives, or museums
Beyond the themes outlined above, if the idea of radical libraries, archives and museums resonates with you, we’d love to hear from you.
Session proposals are due March 12, 2017. Additional submission information is available on the Allied Media Conference website.
