Subject: CFP 'Archival Uncertainties: International Conference on Literary Archives' @British Library 4 April 16
Please see the attached CFP for 'Archival Uncertainties: International Conference on Literary Archives' taking place at the British Library next year on 4 April 2016.
This conference represents an opportunity to explore the uncertain future of literary archival sources in the present age. While information technology is changing rapidly and bringing new possibilities for the democratisation of knowledge, debates remain about intellectual property, ownership and access rights to individual archives. Uneven investment in knowledge institutions contributes to a complicated understanding of how archival values can be realised – as commercial, cultural, national, global – and of how the ethics of preservation and rescue can be addressed in the face of climatic and ideological threats.
Plenary Speaker: Trudy Huskamp Peterson
The conference is an invitation to consider:
• the values of literary archives to different stakeholders – including archivists, researchers, agents, authors, publishers and estates
• the urgent questions about digital and material preservation
• the ethical and political dimensions of location and access
• archives in translation
• the shape of future archives
• the threat to endangered/precarious archives and the
possibilities for collective action
• archives, languages and globalisation
• historical perspectives
• teaching with archives
Proposals for 20 minute papers [250 words max] or 3 paper panels should be sent to a.j.donnell at reading.ac.uk by 5 January 2015

Subject: Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents Welcomes Applications for 2016
The Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) welcomes applications for the
45th Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents, to be held 31 July
-- 4 August 2016 at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is an annual five-day
workshop for individuals new to the field of historical documentary editing.
With the needs of the participants as a guide, experienced documentary
editors provide instruction in the principles and practices of documentary
editing and insight into the realities of work on a documentary edition.
Documentary editing is the craft of preparing historical writings for
publication in print or online. The goal is to produce an authoritative
edition of the material, with an accurate transcription of the original
manuscript and an editorial framework that facilitates understanding of the
text and context.
Participants in the Editing Institute might be joining the staff of an
existing documentary editing project or launching their own. Since its
inception in 1972, the Editing Institute has trained more than 500
individuals. These include not only full-time documentary editors but also
college and university faculty and graduate students, archivists and
librarians, government historians, public historians, and independent
The 45th Editing Institute will take place in conjunction with the 2016 ADE
Annual Meeting, which will be held immediately following the Editing
Institute, 4 August, also at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel in New
The Editing Institute charges no tuition, and travel stipends will be
provided to eligible participants living outside the New Orleans area.
Admission, however, is competitive. The deadline for applications is 1
For an application or more information, please e-mail Bob Karachuk, ADE
Education Director, ade-educationdir at documentaryediting.org.
The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is administered by the
Association for Documentary Editing under a grant from the National
Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an affiliate of the
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
