MAC 2023: Call for Proposals
The Midwest Archives Conference will hold its 2023 Annual Meeting April 13-15 at the Hyatt Centric on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Illinois. A city long-associated with MAC, Chicago is known for its diverse culture, arts, museums, architecture, business and educational institutions, and….cuisine!
The Program Committee invites session proposals touching on the theme “Dig Deep.” Chicago is known as the birthplace of deep dish pizza, an apt framework to consider the many layers of archival meaning and how we understand our profession. Are there times you’ve had to dig deep to slice up new approaches, deliver creative solutions, or toss around new ideas? What are some of the professional, environmental, social, and cultural ingredients that we’ve baked into our profession, our collections, our patrons, and ourselves?
The Program Committee encourages submissions from newer professionals and members of underrepresented groups. Membership is not required. Presenters may submit more than one proposal, but may present only one session OR poster.
Do you have an idea for a proposal but no one to present with? Connect with colleagues on the MAC 2023 Brainstorming form!
The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, September 5 at 5pm CST. For a list of possible topics and full details about the proposal process, visit the MAC 2023 Call for Session Proposals website.
