The 2019 Northwest Archivists Annual Meeting will take place May 15-17, 2019 in Bozeman, Montana. The 2019 Program Committee seeks session proposals on all aspects of archival practice, theory, and research. To encourage the inclusion of more archivists, and our colleagues in related professions, we are forgoing a formal theme this year but are especially interested in topics that reach across the profession including those related to interactions, transitions, collaborations, and identifying/overcoming barriers.
Proposals will be evaluated based on their value to the archival professional, new or unique qualities and perspectives, and appropriateness for the intended audience.
We welcome proposals for sessions in traditional and nontraditional formats, including:
All are welcome to participate including those not employed as professional archivists, such as staff and volunteers, students, community organizers, researchers, creators and donors, and academics.
To assist applicants in finding session collaborators, the Program Committee created a spreadsheet for interested individuals, available here.
DEADLINE for submission is January 18th, 2019. Please use the online submission form to submit your proposal at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSecr1u_lNJF0by_R5a94CLyDfUXO6GVkekkM27LwxzLxhCRYg/viewform?usp=sf_link
Please contact Kellyn Younggren, Program Committee Chair, with any questions or concerns.
