Call for Papers: Archives 2.0 - Saving the Past, Anticipating the Future

National Media Museum, Bradford
25 & 26 November 2014

The National Media Museum in Bradford is hosting a two-day conference on
the challenges and opportunities around the acquisition and management
of archives by cultural institutions. 

Such archives may be still, moving or mixed-format; analogue or digital
or both; they may be from a company, private, practitioner, virtual,
community-based or regional; complete or partial; contained or
continually developing.

This is a Call for Papers asking for perspectives on the strategic
issues, opportunities and challenges presented by organisations which
actively acquire and curate bodies of work.  The conference seeks to
examine emergent digital technologies and their impact on archival
practice and acquisition. 

Contributions which evidence new approaches and/or creative and
innovative ways of thinking which challenge conventional understanding
are particularly welcome.

Four sessions will consider different types of archives encompassing
perspectives from:

*         Practitioners & Photographers
*         Curators and Institutions
*         Mixed Media & Technology Environment
*         Commercial & Galleries World

Suggested themes and questions include:

1. The Archive

*                     What is considered to be `the asset'?
*                     What constitutes an archive and what challenges do
these present to collecting institutions?
*                     At what point is it useful or helpful to call a
`collection' an `archive'?
*                     What is the difference between them, if any?
*                     What is the rationale for acquiring archives?

2. Mixed Curatorship

*                     Curatorial perspectives and models of mixed
curatorship
*                     Does it need to be comprehensive or
representative?
*                     What are the challenges around the acquisition of
analogue/digital/mixed archives? 
 

3. Ownership, Role and the Value of Attendant Data

*                     What is the impact of removing an archive from its
locale?
*                     To what extent is it valuable for a practitioner
to continue to be involved with their archive?


4. The Challenges of Copyright

*                     What is the role of commercial galleries and
organisations?
*                     The challenges of acquiring multi-media or mixed
format collections.
*                     What are the copyright issues around the
acquisition of digital archives, and how can these be addressed?


5. The Future of the Archive: The Role of New Technologies

*                     What are the positive and negative impacts of `new
technologies'?
*                     Digitisation against retention of the original
*                     Preservation and dissemination
*                     Public access, engagement and creative
exploitation
