University Museums and Collections Conference: call for papers deadline 6 March 2020

Call for papers deadline: 6 March 2020
Conference date: 15-17 September 2020
Event location: University of Sydney, Sydney Australia
Website: https://sydney.edu.au/museum/whats-on/umac-2020.html

The 2020 UMAC conference theme is “New Destinations: Looking Forward / Looking Back”. As the operating environment of higher education is changing, museums and collections can play a significant role in helping to shape an institution’s identity and narrative. They are an opportunity for diverse audiences to engage with history, academic thought and contemporary ideas while performing as a theatre space for innovative research and practice. UMAC 2020 examines the relationships between museums and collections and their institutional hosts, their relationship with the tripartite missions of teaching, research and engagement and their relevance to global issues in both higher education and broader society.
